    Tor Browser Questions

    I hope Tor discussions are not against the site policy. Just getting into using it and I noticed that almost every site I visit does not allow me to continue without accepting cookies which is weird...because if I turn off cookies with a non-Tor browser the websites do not give me a hassle. Is...

    Its a consistent drive with 3 out of 4 machines, and the SMART data is young and healthy.

    Wireless Bridge Recommendations

    So I pulled two Ethernet cables and power through the wall, this way I have two Ethernet connections to the router with one being a spare leading to my desk if I need to plug in another hardwired device in the future....if I was going through the work I might as well pull two of them. I used...

    Wireless Bridge Recommendations

    So the system is complete, I ran some tests with the RE650 between the window and blinds netting the best results at a stable 200Mbps both ways. I ended up using a cheap Archer A6 router for NAT and as my AP...it may not have the best 802.11AC performance but all I really need it for is...

    Minimum Patch Length?

    I was about to re-cable our entire patch rack with 12" cables until one of my coworkers mentioned a minimum patch cable length of 3 meters. I want to move our switches up directly below each patch panel so that I can eliminate the cable management rows with a direct shot from the patch panels to...

    Stacking UPS? (Without Transfer Switch)

    I already have multiple 5000VA APC units with external battery banks but these Tripplites were free from another project. I will either put a transfer switch between the two or use just one with a large external bank.

    Stacking UPS? (Without Transfer Switch)

    I reached out to Tripplite and they said no. More peak power is not my goal, its just extended runtime between the two evenly. If anything, I might try connecting both DC buses to the same battery bank.

    Wireless Bridge Recommendations

    Alright I have had a few days to mess with the RE650 and I am not all that impressed with its performance. I did disable the 2.4GHz backhaul and to answer my question above the 5GHz backhaul traffic did carry over to the 2.4GHz fronthaul, it actually doubled the speed of the 2.4GHz AP. However...

    WAN --> LAN Subnet Eating Bandwidth?

    I am hoping the TP-LINK Archer A6 I just ordered is up to the task. I don't need 1Gbps of throughput, but I do need a solid 200Mbps of routing. The reason I set my bridge device to static is so that I can log into it without the need to check the client list in my landlords router for the IP...

    WAN --> LAN Subnet Eating Bandwidth?

    Its a complicated topic I have a thread for already, powerline will not work here. MoCA adapters are a good idea, but I am not sure it would work with the existing equipment here. https://www.snbforums.com/threads/wireless-bridge-recommendations.62489/page-2#post-563468

    WAN --> LAN Subnet Eating Bandwidth?

    Yes you are correct, and no that is not the problem. I disabled the WiFi radio to test that theory and it made no difference. As a minor of fact, the mesh extender has a built in fronthaul AP which is even closer than my secondary WiFi router (even though I have the fronthaul disabled its the...

    WAN --> LAN Subnet Eating Bandwidth?

    I can not seem to figure out why that a router would eat or constrict bandwidth. I setup a subnet on a basic old TPLINK router, using a mesh range extender with Ethernet for the WAN and my desktop connected to the LAN. This allows me to pickup a WiFi signal and redistribute it on a subnet. With...

    VOIP Desk Phone On VPN?

    Good to know! I knew you could setup physical VLANs on a managed switch, but I never know you could setup virtual VLANs that way sharing a single Ethernet. I guess it just comes down to prioritizing the IPs when the packets make it to the access layer switch? (phone IP packets vs PC IP packets?)...

    VOIP Desk Phone On VPN?

    I had a similar device sent to me from Sprint, but it turned out to be garbage because WiFi calling did the same exact thing to my knowledge without the need for additional hardware so I sent it back. Plus it did not even support text message data, it was only for voice and also provided WiFi...

    VOIP Desk Phone On VPN?

    Yes that is what I am trying to do. I do have permission to setup a site-to-site as I am one of the few people working in our IT department but the director told me if I screw it up I would be solely responsible for it. So I thought about running pfSense on a separate machine at the office and...
