    UPS silliness

    Batteries are central to the entire concept of UPS. Without a battery, a UPS is just a surge protector.

    Anyone happy with their UPS?

    I read about 3 sentences from that "article" before I had to close the tab. What an insufferable moron. Sealed lead acid batteries are not meant to be drained past the halfway point. When you do this more than a handful of times, they die. This isn't a secret, it's printed all over the damn...

    Home Network NAS Woes - R7000, ReadyShare, ext4

    Fat32 is supported and I suppose I could give it a try although the 4gb file limit is pretty lame. memtest came up clean on all 3 clients.

    Home Network NAS Woes - R7000, ReadyShare, ext4

    good to know. this is my last resort - i'd rather just throw money at the problem at this point. until I get enough cash for a Synology box it will be copy and paste over and over until it works hopefully :p figured as much, Paragon EXT4 for Windows crashes every now and then as well, and the...

    What the hell is going on with my Netgear Router with connected External HDD as NAS? ISP: CenturyLink (shut up) ISP provided modem is a modem + router combo, Cisco DDR2200-CL. This thing is absolute garbage, but if it’s stupid but it works it isn’t stupid right? When connected to...

    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    need a new router with Windows and Mac OS X compatible printer sharing for my Brother DCP-J152W and also my Synology box. should I just get the Asus AC68U and run stock firmware, or find something that runs tomato / open WRT / dd WRT?

    Good 4-bay NAS

    I need a 4-bay NAS just for home and family use, storing pictures and documents and whatnot. We have too many PCs to use external drives without hassle. Streaming to the PS3 with PS3MediaServer would be nice although not required. I want to start with 1 WD Red and expand into RAID 5 as I need...

    Home NAS / Backup Server

    I have an old computer laying around that I'd like to turn into a central backup server. All I want is a PC hooked up to my router so that I can have a central place for my foobar2k library, Picasa photos, Clonezilla backups, Windows restore states etc. Obviously I'd like to access the files...

    If you had to pick a gaming laptop...

    i will admit i have a MUCH more limited experience with these laptops than you do. i would just like to add to really think about this decision. these laptops are good for a very small niche; are you part of that niche, or has marketing simply convinced you that you are? nobody wakes up in the...

    razer blade, m17x, or possibly one of the samsung/asus/acer mentioned earlier provided the cooling proved to be sufficient (haven't looked into it). absolutely positively nothing else. i can't stress this enough, stay the hell away from all those "custom" gaming laptops like sager, cyberpower...

    Need help with replacing rechargeable batteries

    ^ this guy is most likely correct. If you didn't want to go the LiFePO4 route, 3x AA NiMH cells would work. The difference is only .4v nominal. However it is probably easier to just buy the LiFePO4s than it would be to re-wire everything to accept 3x AAs. Everything in my house that uses...

    Some questions about m0n0wall

    I was just looking for a good, stable SOHO router. I don't really need that much coverage, building is 2-story 3500 sq ft get 5 bars all around with a crappy isp-provided dsl modem / router combo. If that is the case - that m0n0wall and similar aren't generally used as APs - then I'm likely not...

    Some questions about m0n0wall

    I'm in the market for a new router and I've been thinking about building a m0n0wall box. How does it compare to something like this? Specifically, that router has 3 antennas, doesn't this mean it has better coverage than an old PC-turned-router with only 1? Can any old NIC just broadcast a...
