  1. There is usually an access panel somewhere in the house. Commonly they are in closets and look like this You put an ethernet switch in the panel and then hook your router up to the switch.
  2. I have an XRackPro that I was given from a business that closed down. It locks and is completely sound dampened too. I would say get an APC NetShelter, but I dont think they sell anything less than 24u.
  3. Why use ESXi when you can use proxmox, which is free, and has every feature he needs? I've been using Proxmox in production for 2+ years and have never had any problems.
  4. I don't see any antenna ports on the device, but the ebay link has a picture of antennas. Which is it?
  5. I wouldn't recommend getting it. It's running at x1 speed, and it looks pretty sketchy.
  6. You can get a wireless adapter that is not as bad as the asus one. Get one that is preferrably pcie and has external antennas. That tiny little dongle is not designed for the connection strength that gaming requires.
  7. TCP and IP is not an "or" thing. They are in different categories. The apple hotspot is just like any other hotspot in that it hosts a wifi network, provides a dhcp server, and does gateway functions like NAT and routing.
  8. Like others have said, you can pretty much just plug both pcs into each other. But since there is no DHCP server on a point to point link, you will need to configure a static address on each pc. For example, one pc can be and the other can be Just make sure they in the same subnet (basically keep both static ip addresses identical except from the last 3 digits). You can then go to the file/folder you want to share, right click, then go to the sharing tab. Click advanced sharing, check "Share this folder" and then go to permissions and enable full contro
  9. Yeah I personally do not see hyper-v as a production hypervisor. It is outdated in so many ways. You should check out proxmox. I've been using it for almost 2 years now in the datacenter and it's been great. It's got a debian base and runs kvm or containers. Really awesome IMO. It will run windows server just fine and has its own web management interface that is used for taking care of everything.
  10. The 45drives storinator is literally just a server. It has no special firmware or anything. It's a Xeon based server with 15 bays/ I personally would go with option 3 and get a nice server and storage array. Something good would be an dl360g8 or r420 with a Lenovo SA120. Here is a nice dl368g8: https://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Proliant-DL360-G8-Virtualization-16-Core-Server-48GB-RAM-P420-4-Trays/172530477994 And an external HBA if you want to run software raid: https://www.ebay.com/itm/SAS9207-8E-LSI-8-port-6gb-s-SAS-SATA-TO-PCIe-Host-Bus-Adapter/253413945368 Or if you wo
  11. While splitting lanes without a PLX is possible, and not actually that hard, I dont think that there is a big enough market for things like this sadly. There exists solutions that use PLX chips to expand the amound of available pcie lanes to a backplane, but they are either pcie gen 2 or overly expensive.
  12. Hmmm yeah https just doesnt respond. Since you are using https I assume you have tcp port 443 open? https uses tcp 443 while http uses tcp port 80
  13. Yes that's it. It's actually up to you to choose between the LR and the Pro. Both in theory have equal range, but the pro has faster antennas. I personally don't think that the extra speed makes a big difference but it's up to you.
