    NVR build - question about 2nd LAN port

    What hard drives are you recommending? The specific surveillance ones that WD and Seagate are selling? Do you recommend using those in a NAS that has a surveillance package such as Synology and QNAP? I implemented a "large scale" surveillance solution a year ago. Synology Survelliane...

    Alternative to Meraki APs

    For all of the people that say there is no support for Ubiquiti. I have used the chat feature in the Unifi Controller a few times and it was good. I got real people chatting with me, opened a ticket. I had a guy emailing me every few days to check on the progress of my issue. I manage 2...

    Small office (Quick books) hardware advice

    It's not even worth it anymore. Just setup a Quickbooks Online account for them. Less maintenance, less worry about backup, and they will be able to use on mobile devices and eventually input stuff while they are on job sites to save extra steps. I am running a similar setup for a client of...

    Using 2 routers to create isolated internet connection

    Plug 2 routers into the ISP router. One router will be your network, the 2nd router will be the subtenant's network. But I think you are talking about something different. You want to put a router in the secure room that is inside your network. This is a double nat, which works, but can...

    new home hardwiring question

    Wire it like any business environment. Put a switch in there with slightly more ports than the patch panel(s). Plug all of the patch panel ports into the switch. A consumer grade router will honestly be fine, but if you want to step it up, try a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter, they have some rack-mount...

    Anyone else keep a backup wifi router?

    I work for a small IT company, so we have about 5 old routers in a box at our office at any given time. We also have another 5 or so firewalls. So if something were to die, I would just grab something to replace it the next day.

    Network slowed down!

    There is a 5GHz band steering option on the Unifi APs. You should be able to get 867Mbps on the 5GHz channel. Ubiquiti Networks - UniFi AC (Model comparison at the bottom) They also have an airtime fairness option you can test out to see if it helps. What router are you using? You may need to...

    New house networking - need advice on network, hardware and entertainment system

    Any reason why you don't just buy an actual rackmount NAS? It almost sounds like you would be better off putting an actual rack in the basement, and putting everything it in, rather than having a bunch of stand-alone boxes.

    Fake Ram

    I got some Crucial DDR2 ECC Registered ram for an old server off of Amazon. It has Qimonda chips on it. Also, the stickers are slightly different than the 2 existing sticks I already have. Honestly, If they work, I don't care if they are "fake" because it was less than half the price of the...

    I can do this. But I don't know how. I can remove some of the 1:1 NATs. Can someone send me a example of how I can take 1 public IP address and point to the following: Point ports 80 and 443 to Point port 3389 to And port 8080 to ?

    I can configure a PowerVault MD3200i with 24 300gb 10k SAS drives for $10k that's 7.2TB. Way more than we need. What does the EqualLogic, or VNXe, or NetApp give us that an MD3200i wouldn't?
