    Is it worth having all your network equipment on a UPS?

    Depends on the capacity. When my mom was still alive, she needed her Phillips machine to breathe properly and while it had a battery backup in the unit itself, it was only 2hrs, 3 tops. Once when the power was out for over an hour, she was very scared. I got her 2x UPSes, one 2200va and...

    Is it worth having all your network equipment on a UPS?

    I dunno as I've never connected any of our UPSes to the equipment since we just want them to stay on until the power cuts. Someone more knowledgeable on that will have to chime in.

    Is it worth having all your network equipment on a UPS?

    Yep, I feel the same way. Nothing like seeing the radar on my 2k display and being able to select the info I want to see in a hurry. It depends on the other end I suppose. I know there have been times where our network stayed up but the service was down, and that could have been due to power...

    Is it worth having all your network equipment on a UPS?

    Even with a generator, the UPS would help to keep the power smoother, especially if sine-wave. As far as the need and how long they would last--depending on the size of the UPS, you can get more than an hour (or even several). If you don't have any other form of communications (internet on...

    Plume SuperPods - worth connecting at all?

    Even in bridge mode they require an app? (I hate all this app crap when it comes to networking. :rolleyes:)

    Need advice...and the backstory.

    I'll share what I used it for. Back 2004, the fastest cable modems were 8M/128k. Well, I was shooting aroud 2GB of data each weekend that I needed online by Tuesday. Even uploading 24x7, 128k is only 16KB/sec, so a single megabyte would take 64 seconds, so about 1 minute per megabyte. With...

    Ebay Fraud Help

    Even with a debit card, you may still be able to get a chargeback for fraud depending on the bank issuing the card. The bank fraud departments tend to side with you when merchants act in bad faith like this and is a recourse you should look into, even if it is outside the normal time period...

    What do I need to setup a 2.5GbE network from my PC to my DS1621+ (possible 10GbE in the future?)

    For the kids to upgrade them to gigabit, what phone line adapter are you using? If you only need 2.5Gbe to the NAS, I would simply use a usb 1Gb adapter for the regular traffic and make a dedicated 2.5Gb link from your system to the NAS with a crossover cable. The reason to do this is that new...

    Ebay Fraud Help

    I wish there was a list of bad sellers that wasn't owned by ebay. Seller ssagt113 is a MF dirtbag that took my good faith attempt to resolve a damaged in shipping issue and just used it to game the system. I'm headed to the bank to file a chargeback right now. Ebay won't even allow me to...

    Need advice...and the backstory.

    So to keep the MIL happy and not mess with her stuff, I would simply let your setup be a client on her network and connect that to the sophos as another wan. And I'd set it up for failover or overflow versus primary so nothing on her side gets affected unless you are using your full 1Gb...

    With ATT internet, how do I add my own wireless router?

    This works, but it really doesn't work because the att is still acting as the router. And instead of a 'hybrid' setup, it's better to just let the att be the router if there's no special need.

    With ATT internet, how do I add my own wireless router?

    If you don't want problems, make yours an AP.
