    A small datacenter build and other projects

    Hey folks! Long time, no update. I have since left the company that I built the infrastructure for shown previously in this thread. It was a hard decision, but in the end it was time for me to move on to my next challenge. One of my last large projects was building this system. It's a 10...

    Article: Why Your Cat6/5e Network Cable is Slowing You Down

    I've pulled more Cat5, Cat5e, and Cat6/6a then I care to remember. I've tested every drop across multiple brands of cables (Honeywell, Beldin, even Monoprice) over the past several years and passed 1Gb's for every drop. Do you know what brand of cable the installer used? Every decent installer...

    multi-year multi-million infrastructure overhaul

    Main distribution frame, intermediate distribution frame. Think of it as core and then edge switch gear.

    A small datacenter build and other projects

    Thanks for the continued support. I won't rant about the company I work for, but let me put it this way- some less then popular decisions have been made recently by the upper management and no one is happy- including myself. Things are rocky in the contract world and we sadly laid several people...

    LogMeIn No Longer Free

    Wow. This is terrible. I have a half dozen people I still provide support for who have a hard time even understanding what this lets me do and there is no way they could afford their own accounts. Looks like it's time to research alternates.

    Small Home Lab - PowerEdge T20

    I ended up with one of the T110 II's for $249 a few weeks back, but now I am wishing I had waited and bought this: https://www.cdw.com/shop/products/Lenovo-ThinkServer-TS140-70A4-Xeon-E3-1225V3-3.2-GHz-Monitor-none/3131451.aspx Lenovo TS140 with USB3 and a E3-1225v3 for $49 more.

    Unifi 802.11ac AP's

    If you search, I had exactly that problem. I ended up moving to the AC units and it fixed it. I spent months on and off with tech support with no resolution outside of "just RMA it". Outside of the power issues, the AC units have been solid since install.

    Unifi 802.11ac AP's

    Nope. As it turned out, it just would not power on if you used the following sequence: Plug in LAN to POE Injector and plug POE in to AP. It will only boot if you plug in the POE first and leave the LAN disconnected until the AP boots. We tested this with two others. No idea why it does this. I...

    And another one died...I'm having terrible luck with these AC units.

    Unifi 802.11ac AP's

    About two weeks. Just a heads up- as I discovered today- ALWAYS READ THE MANUAL. The new AC line requires POE+ @22watts. My older 2520 HP switches did not have enough power to run the AP's. I did have one fail, and it may have been due to under-powering it- I have no idea. My options are spend...

    Unifi 802.11ac AP's

    My first AC just died. It will only randomly power on. It was running incredibly hot too. I'm going to contact support, but I bet I will get the old "Well, let's RMA it" response.
