  1. Trying to decide what charging pad/adapter/case combo to go with. Thus far I have: Pad - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H9B7ALK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2KUZVNQ9LP7N9 Adapter - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H7FJXCC/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1EF9OE38VX40W Case - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IMBUAL8/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3RZJ9YYQ3ASDK Would you recommend any changes?
  2. Would there even be a performance increase to have the GPU on a socket as opposed to PCI-E assuming you could fit them all on a mobo?
  3. If you hadn't have gone with FreeNAS, what other software would you have considered?
  4. I've been using FreeNAS for some time now and I'm considering abandoning it for an alternative server OS. Problems just seem to happen too often for me and fixing them takes hours and hours of online research and trial and error. And on top of that, I often find myself doing even more harm while troubleshooting. And this is extremely bad when my young child wants to watch a movie and I can't make it happen. Now, I very well may just be an idiot, but if that's the case I still need a more idiot-friendly server OS. My needs for the server machine are: - software RAID - file backup
  5. I believe I've undone the last steps I took. But I think there's an issue with your advice: you say to take the MAC address of "the computer". That I have. But that's for the freeNAS machine and that's not really my issue. It's had a static IP all along. Instead, I need a static IP for the plexserver which is not the same IP (or MAC address) as the freeNAS machine itself (even though the plex server is running from the freeNAS machine). But, I was digging around in the webUI for FreeNAS and I did see under the details of the plex jail adjustable fields for IP address and MAC address. I the
  6. Groovy, I'll try that out and report back. Thanks. Edit: OK, I followed this video as best I could and copied all the inputs in the video verbatim with the exception of inputing an IP of 192.168.0.2 instead. That gave me a readout on the freeNAS machine of: "Enter an option from 1-11: Sep 18 15:21:21 freenas kernel: arp: 44:8a:5b:9b:ed:90 is using my IP address 192.168.0.2 on epair0b! Sep 18 15:21:21 freenas kernel: arp: 02:86:00:00:0a:0b attempts to modify permanent entry for 192.168.0.2 on re0" I can't tell whether freeNas is saying it was successful or not. The MAC address it s
  7. So, I have a freeNAS machine running Plex. I was able to forward the 32400 port for the Plex Server its running on my Motorola Surfboard SBG6580 modem/router combo (I know, I know, combo modem/router, gross right?). I was initially having problems because I was forwarding from the freeNAS machine's local IP address instead of the plex server's local IP which are apparently different. While that's great that it's working, I'll have to re-forward the port each time the local IP changes if it's not set to be static. I've been able to set every device in the house to a static local IP in my ro
  8. So how much cachet does it give y'all to be able to tell potential sponsors, "We have over 1 million subscribers." ?
  9. So I bought a chromecast. From everything I heard, it would be a simple setup. Unfortunately, I failed to realize beforehand that chromecast only plays nicely with certain routers. Namely, it takes exception to my Motorola SBG6580. My google-fu tells me there are some people who have made it work between these two though. Do any of you good people happen to be among them? Chromecast does ask for a couple things to be done with your router first, like: - Make sure your router is using 2.4GHz range, not 5. (verified) - Add the chromecast's MAC address to your router if MAC filterin
  10. Can I use a raspberry pi as a pfsense machine?
  11. Motorola Surfboard SBG6580, but honestly, I need more than 4 ethernet ports now, so I'll probably need to upgrade to something else. So feel free to throw out your recommendations for that too. Thanks for the help good people.
  12. So I know exactly jack-squat about networking. But its about time I learned because I'm getting frequent IP address conflicts on my home network that my wife looks at me and expects me to just fix instantly. I've got up to 12 devices using the network at any given time (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, & FreeNas platforms). My thought was to utilize some sort of home network software that would allow me to assign every device a static IP address. Does such a thing exist? What would you recommend?
  13. Linus & Luke, feel free to do as many SC benchmarks as you like. If I could just rely on y'all for benchmarks each time a big SC patch/release drops, that would be great.
