    What switch do I really need?

    All cameras will need PoE. That is the only way they will be getting power, so a PoE switch is a must. I don't want to have to buy injectors for 8 cameras. Then the cost will be more than the PoE switch for those alone, even though they are cheap.

    What switch do I really need?

    I'm setting up a surveillance system. I have to use a P2P bridge between 2 buildings at 2 different sites. The bridges I'm using are a Ubiquiti bridge. When I was on another forum that dealt with cameras, many said that I should make my whole system Ubiquiti. Well, that may be great for...

    Looking at adding another node to the my mesh.

    I am thinking about getting an AC68U or P to add to my AiMesh. How far can a person put the node so it is still a viable and powerful enough router. I have my main router in the basement, wired to a 68U upstairs as part of a node to my AiMesh. The other node will be in my garage and it will...

    Working remotely.

    My brother-in-law has a Synology 418. He wants to be able to remotely access jpegs and be able to edit them in lightroom. Is the only way to do it by downloading it from the NAS into the computer he is remotely accessing it from? He also wants to get his excel documents and be able to edit...

    Yahoo and yahoo mail problem

    Also, I just got off the phone with my IPS again and now they tell me that there was an outage that affected certain websites. Nice to know after all the hours I spent wasting my time trying to fix something I wasn't going to fix. :mad: It just came back on a little bit ago.

    Yahoo and yahoo mail problem

    Yes, and it worked over my phone connection on Verizon. With the DNS what do you suggest? Yahoo and mail just came back on. I have no idea what happened.

    Yahoo and yahoo mail problem

    This is as close to my category as I can get I guess. Yesterday, I was working on the computer, working in yahoo and going to my email. I had no problems at all. Then last night my wife was going to go on to her yahoo mail and it just wouldn't go. I then tried and it didn't work. I went into...

    RT-AC86u router acting strangely

    I have worked with many routers but am far from an expert for sure. The UI is just a little different. Thanks for your notes as I will be looking through them.

    RT-AC86u router acting strangely

    Well, he is a quadriplegic, so I think I need to help him as he can't do it himself. I'm just trying to be the good Samaritan.

    RT-AC86u router acting strangely

    I installed a router for a friend of mine. It is the 86u. He is having issues with it though. If he goes on the router and links to the main SSID name, all it does is sit and buffer most of the time he says. He will then switch to the guest and it works perfectly, so he is content with just...

    Mapped drives won't reconnect after restart?

    I have checked the box to reconnect after restart but my mapped drives to my NAS won't reconnect after I restart my computer. They will reconnect after I click on them which only takes a couple of minutes but for some reason they won't do it after a restart. Has anyone else ever had this...

    Status abnormal!!

    Today, my cloud station client say status abnormal. Account does not have write privileges. When I go in and check to see what doesn't, it shows the plex account does not have write privileges. It says download only. Is that necessary? What do most people have with that account? Thanks.
