    Need some help. UPnP vs port forwarding for security camera remote access.

    It most certainly does not belong in any network. A network is a network and all networks should be secure. This treatment of home vs business network is precisely the cause that has lead us to inferior networking protocols in home networking that only work on a single network.

    Need some help. UPnP vs port forwarding for security camera remote access.

    Any "firewall" that supports UPnP is not a firewall. Devices inside your network should NOT be able to open pinholes into your network. Disable that crap and use manual port forwarding.

    Right now for Port forwarding for it to work I have to forward the ports on my BGW 210 and my Asus AX-86U is this normal ?

    Yes, that is the pass through mode and what you should be doing, per att, when using your own router. I would suggest instead you bypass the RG if you want use your own router. There are multiple ways of doing so and this is widely discussed over on DSLR. Is there a reason why are you using the...

    Which one to keep? A request of two switches

    I'd keep the E3800 as it has 10Gbps ports. The other has SFP ports but not SFP+ so no 10Gbps at all..

    Clarification on SFP+ and SFP28 compatibility

    1. Generally no. In my experience there is no such thing as optical auto-negotiation. Perhaps some modules support this. As a rule matching modules on each end. 2. Yes, the socket is backwards compatible. 3. Generally yes but the module itself must support this.

    Ethernet only works while using vpn. Wifi and other devices unaffected.

    Any chance you or the drivers you installed have enabled jumbo frames or changed the MTU? I ask this because you said the VPN worked and often VPN "adapters" have the MTU default set to <=1450 to offset headers.

    maximum speed i can get over cat 53

    Exactly as Samir says! Just because the cable has cat 5e printed on it doesn't mean the installation meets the spec. If you use good cable rated at 350 or 400Mhz and make good terminations with quality connectors you can test to higher specs. Every run in my house tests to cat6+ on the fluke...

    maximum speed i can get over cat 53

    Assuming your cable installation actually meets or exceeds 5E standards end to end 2.5Gbps will work as per spec. Per spec 5Gbps will need cat 6 or better. Obviously, you will not exceed 1 Gbps if you continue using routers and switches with only 1Gbps interfaces. You will need to upgrade your...

    Do I have a bad HBA card?

    It is fairly common to flash rebranded cards with OEM firmware. The description of the ebay link plainly says that has been done. Of course it also says the card is new and a new card should not have been reflashed ... meh details lol. I would suggest running this by the STH folks. The folks...

    School me on VLans Please and Need Help w/Static IPs

    First, vlans are a layer 2 thing and have nothing to do with IPs, static or otherwise.Now, did they actually give you 5 /32 IPs or a subnet? I ask this as 5 IPs is an odd number that doesn't align with a subnet mask Generally the way this would work is you get a subnet and use one for a router...

    Musk to cut half of Twitter jobs and end remote work for the rest, report says

    Really venturing into genmay territory but .... I guess they shouldn't have started it then. Karma can be rough.

    Musk to cut half of Twitter jobs and end remote work for the rest, report says

    That would be true except for the fact we have it on record that both Twiiter and FB were doing the government's bidding when it came to suppressing some topics vs others.

    Musk to cut half of Twitter jobs and end remote work for the rest, report says

    Reading is only part of it. How many of these pro Ukraine Americans have been to Crimea or Donetsk? How many have even spoken to someone from there? Very simply Americans need to travel more. People here tend to think interstate movement is traveling. It is not. We as a country need to go to...

    External LTE/5G Antenna

    They don't offer anything beyond what it comes with and have no official position or suggestions on 3rd party external antenna. My SE team is unofficially looking to see if what any other customers may be using.
