    A very newbie question regarding modem and router IP address

    Why not request a modem only from your ISP instead of the combo device? Or just buy your own and stop renting one.

    PFsense is killing me. SHould I go USG?

    Just putting my 2 cents in. Pfsense is very stable. I could go years without rebooting if not for updates. I have IPv6 turned off or set to none on WAN and LAN. No support from my ISP yet anyway.

    [HOT] Fullsized RGB Mech. Keyboard with Outemu for $25.99 on Amazon!

    I have a Logitech G710+ now and that is my first mechanical. I believe I paid 70 for it which IMO already feels like a lot to me for a keyboard (I know mechanical can go for a lot more). If it's good enough I may need to get 2! I like that it has the numpad too.

    pfSense help

    This should explain how to set it up. You need to have the default gateway set to the IP of the pfsense LAN IP or the IP to access the pfsense GUI. Like was said before, the modem and router should have a different IP.

    pfSense help

    WAN goes to the modem. What is the DHCP server you have running on? It may be something with that as well. You could verify that by using the pfsense DHCP server to see if it works first then re-enable the one you are using. I actually have used pfsense for 10+ years now. I just don't use it...

    pfSense help

    What he said. Also you need the DHCP server set on the IP of the pfsense router for the default gateway. I think in Windows server it defaults to the IP of the server. EDIT: What does it say if you try

    Skull Canyon NUC (2016) w/ M.2 eGPU

    Are there any eGPU solutions even on the horizon? I see news about the Razer Core and and Asus one. I have seen them in the past, but it seems like they never actually released. Those would be awesome to increase the graphics performance of something like this or a laptop.

    Using pfsense and a R7000 as an AP right now. I have also used the Unifi AP in the past and they are quite reliable.The R7000 is clearly better as far as speed and range are concerned though, so I would keep that IMO. I am thinking of getting the new Unifi AC PRO once it is readily available...

    Need a recommendation for a 24 port 1U inexpensive managed or semi-managed switch

    What's weird is I thought they denied mine as well. I signed all of the documents though and said I could not find proof of purchase since it was long ago like you said, but I took pictures of the serials on the switch. Around 2 weeks later I randomly received a tacking number email and the new...

    Need a recommendation for a 24 port 1U inexpensive managed or semi-managed switch

    It's for home, but I might just spend the extra money and get the newer one. I bought it off of ebay used. I tried to RMA it, but HP is asking for proof of purchase now. Have you had luck doing this? The funny thing is, the switch was already almost on my doorstep (overnight shipping) and...

    Need a recommendation for a 24 port 1U inexpensive managed or semi-managed switch

    Do you think the 1920 is worth the extra $38? I really don't even need a managed switch, but the extra features would be nice. I am coming from a 1410-24g that was solid until it was hit by lightning. It took out my SB6121 modem and Ooma as well. :(

    Scaling of 1080P games on a 4K monitor

    Would it be possible to buy a 4K monitor and play games at 1080p 120/144Hz? You could use the desktop at 4k and have better performance in games if it still scaled correctly. Not that maintaining a constant 144Hz/FPS is going to be an easy task either.

    What's the craziest thing you're virtualizing?

    What's the craziest thing you're virtualizing?

    Also look into ServerWMC. I believe it will allow you to watch live TV like an extender would. You can also do tuner sharing and give each computer that you want to watch live TV on a separate tuner. I have a win7 WMC vm as well and it just transfers all my recordings to my Server 2012 R2 VM.

    Anyone see a benefit to using something sure as Veaam to backup when I can just use the client backup feature in Server 2012? It doesn't take much to set up another VM if something were to go bad and just restore from the backups. Veaam free doesn't look to be automated like it is and can't...
