    Dell Poweredge T440 and adding a video card

    When I tried it before I did have the video card in it. I will try tonight without it and see if it lets me in. I don't see why having a video card in it would prevent me from getting into Drac. As for the video card, its an AMD 5600 XT. The video card that was originally called out for it was...

    Dell Poweredge T440 and adding a video card

    I would be adding in a video card to the system. The system has 2 main fans in it, one in front and one at the rear. The rear one is inside of a cover that goes over the CPUs since those have passive heatsinks on them instead of active ones with a fan. As for the PSU's in the system, it has 2...

    Dell Poweredge T440 and adding a video card

    I have a dual xeon poweredge T440 that mainly runs plex on it and file backup for the house. I want to add a video card to it and use it as a CAD workstation as well.

    Linux Mint Wifi Problems

    I am in the transition of switching from Windows to Linux and have been using Linux Mint on my old laptop for about 2 weeks now and liking it very much. The "newer" laptop I am typing this on has Win10 on it and for now I partitioned the drive to put Linux Mint on it. The problem that I am...

    Wireless and Wired network at home not talking to one another.

    I have my set up with the following: Modem -> Switch -> Google Wifi. I have found some that said they setup another wifi network and were able to change the Google Wifi IP when they did that. I tried and still didn't get it to work. My last option is to change the IP range on the switch which now.

    Wireless and Wired network at home not talking to one another.

    Wired would be a few PC's and game consoles. Wireless would be 4 laptops, a tv, Ring security, 4 tablets and 2 cell phones. I just tried to change the settings you mentioned and it errors out not letting me do it. I think I have to unplug the main wifi point and see if it will let me do it then

    Wireless and Wired network at home not talking to one another.

    So the issue I have is this: my wired network is on 192.168.1.X and my Google Wifi in the house is 192.168.86.X. Because of this, I can't get things that are wired in to see my wireless printer. I have an HP V1910 Switch that everything plugs into. With that, would it be better for me to...

    Sophos SG310 Hardware Appliance

    I got it to work. I had to put the ISO of UTM 9.7 on a thumb drive AND a CD. Once I did that, it booted of the thumb drive and then did the install off the CD. Weird but it worked. I have had a login with Sophos for a few years now because I was using a free version of their firewall on a PC...

    Wireless network and wired network on the same IP range?

    I have 3 google wifi points in the house. One is physically plugged into the network and the other 2 are in bridge mode. So based on what you are saying, I should go into my switch and change the IP range there to start with 192.168.86.xxx and everything should work out. Everything on the wired...

I have an issue with wireless devices seeing wired ones and the same with the opposite. Is there a way I can fix this...

    Ubuntu installing AMD R9 290x...

    Good to know. I am getting a little issue with the system when I had to work on an excel document in Open Office or Libre Office, where it would stutter or lag for a moment. Could it be related to the install of the drivers from AMD? If so, how would I remove them?

    First it would be on how to check if the video card is detected by the OS correctly. If not, how to install the drivers correctly on the system. I currently have this running on a mid 2010 mac pro 5,1.

    Mac Pro Mid 2010 Windows boot issue

    That's what I initially thought as well because the original drive I had in there was a 500gb 7200rpm that was working perfect and once windows was installed, it wouldn't boot after switching video cards. I highly doubt that 2 hard drives went bad in the system like that. After watching one...
