    Ubiquiti equipment

    Ubiquity has also said they will add an opt out button on the next firmware release as well. I think I am a few revisions behind on my firmware right now.

    New house intranet wiring

    If I was building a house new again, I would make sure it has conduit for one. I would run a minimum of 2 cables per room, with 4 cables at least for the Living Room, Office, and Family Room. But that is just me, and I am stuck looking for an 8 port POE switch for my home office because I...

    Is there any difference in ethernet performance amongst WiFi routers with 1Gb ports?

    If there is any performance difference it won't be because of the Ethernet ports. It will be CPU, memory, and what things the routers do.

    Got a new (used but new to me) Netgear GS724T

    You should be good to go to just use it. If you want advanced features it has a web interface for managing the switch. You may need to figure out how to reset the switch to clear off any old config that may have been on it. Have fun.

    Internet speed much slower through router

    One thing you could try is new cables, you might have a single decent cable but other cables could be sketchy. So I would either test each cable, or replace them all. Depending on which version of wireless you might be getting the max, as 54Mb is max for G.

    Transporting Large cases strap

    I bought one of those years ago when I was going to LAN parties fairly often. It made packing up and carrying everything so much easier. I think it is still in my office closet.

    Does anybody know if P-Hole works with Linux 19

    What is Linux 19? Debian latest version is at version 10, Red Hat newest is at 8, Fedora is at version 31, Amazon Linux is at version 2. The Linux Kernel is at 5.2.13. So we are guessing you mean Ubuntu. So what he is suggesting is either stick with Ubuntu LTS (version 18.04) because...

    And your point? I've worked Government IT multiple times, and started using Linux and Unix in 1995. This and $5 gets me a small coffee these days. However I at least know how to ask a question on a forum, and not argue with people trying to help me.

    Help with choosing Between True OS or FreeBSD especially for final results of Lian-Li D8000 build

    I have fixed your post for you. This is ALL you needed to ask to get answers. The rest of what you wrote doesn't matter, and is a distraction. As far as writing your own Operating System (is this the second or third year of this project?), you don't need a high end server to write it. If...

    Lightning killing cablemodem ethernet port.

    The original cable was aerial cable, it got hit by lightning and was in two pieces when I got there, and two switches were toasted. Then we did conduit, we still had an issue where we toasted a pair of switches after a lightning strike. We replaced the surge suppressors after that. Then it...

    Bad Ethernet Outlet? How?

    Could the port on the switches not be setup to allow for a client to connect, but only a switch? So switch to switch works, but switch to PC doesn't work. Some older equipment required a crossover cable to connect a switch to the port, or you could change the port to connect a switch, but...

    Wiring for a home - Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6a?

    This, so much this. If I want to upgrade my wiring, I have to open walls since all wires are probably tacked to the 2x4s in the walls. If I do the upgrade, I will be putting in conduit, to make is easier next time.
