    IGMP Snooping and VoIP

    Forgive my ignorance, but does IGMP Snooping affect VoIP in any way (and if so, positively or negatively)?

    Zywall USG20 and Windows Domain

    I'm having trouble getting this firewall to easily recognize our Windows domain (logging into a user account takes way longer than it should). The Zyxel manuals seem pretty unhelpful too. Would anyone be able to help walk me through it?

    Windows 7 - Prioritizing LAN and Wifi

    Thank you for the help! But it's still not working. I applied both methods listed in the article above, restarted, and it's still putting the wifi priority above LAN.

    Best Unmanaged PoE Switch?

    New would be very nice. Again, just 10/100 (no gigabit needed), and yes power on all ports. Unmanaged as well, since the company providing our phones is handling all the backend stuff. We currently only have 14 phones but may be expanding to 30 in a year or so. The injectors would be hidden...

    Best Unmanaged PoE Switch?

    Ah, good to know. Well the company we bought these Mitel phones from gave us injectors just in case (specifically for the phones we bought), which I am considering using instead of a PoE switch. Would you happen to know of any downsides with injectors?

    Hm, I tried messing with the bindings and it's still prioritizing wifi over LAN.

    Best Unmanaged PoE Switch?

    I'm looking for a 24 or 48 port unmanaged PoE switch (for phones, max power they use is 6.1 watts). 100 only (no need for gigabit). Budget? $500 give or take. Any recommendations?

    Windows 7 - Prioritizing LAN and Wifi

    Both LAN and wifi are on the same subnet (the wifi is AP mode). I'll give the binding order a try and report back

    Windows 7 - Prioritizing LAN and Wifi

    I'm having trouble getting Windows 7 to prioritize LAN connections over wifi connections. I've done the basics such as going into Advanced Options (see article here:, but it still seems to use Wifi over LAN every time.

    Over 1M People Downloaded Windows 10

    Anyone who honestly finds it surprising that a public Technical Preview is going to want to monitor usage for feedback purposes is an idiot. You have to be pretty full of yourself if really think Microsoft gives two shits about what websites you visit or where your porn folder is.

    Solid Laptop Recommendation?

    I have a client who is looking to replace his work laptop. However, he's the type who abuses his machines, not on purpose but just on accident. It's not that he tries to be destructive, he's just a little careless. He currently has an older 2011/2012 Dell Inspiron, which has held up incredibly...

    Good Anti-Virus for Terrible User

    Awesome guys, thanks for all the help! Yeah pretty much the reason why I asked in the first place. I like MSE, but I also don't click on "FREE DOWNLOADZ!!" and shit like that. Thanks for the help!

    Good Anti-Virus for Terrible User

    My buddy uses his computer for business and personal, but it's infested with crap and needs to be completely wiped (there's nothing he needs to save on it). He's the kind of guy you probably know who just sucks at using computers; always manages to get viruses or adware magically. I usually...

    iPhone 6 Plus Teardown

    EA: 'We Never Want To Be Worst US Company Again'

    Agreed. Please just make SimCity work as it is - forget all the other problems with it. Just make the existing stuff work correctly for fucks sake! Traffic, schools, regional play and so much more are still broken, and EA's only answer was to release an Offline mode and allow mods - that was...

    Small Office Upgrade

    Did you mean to post a link? EDIT: Nevermind, just noticed that you moved the thread. Thanks! That's typically what I've tried to do, but I've yet to do a project of this scale (since I do this by myself).

    Small Office Upgrade

    I'll be doing IT work for a small office including replacing their network (wifi, router, switch, patch panel), setting up a couple of iPads, reformatting a couple of computers, setting up some new software (new version of Quickbooks, Acrobat), and setting up some other random peripherals...

    PlayStation Now Is Still Way Too Expensive

    The whole renting thing is bad enough, but STREAMING?? That's the real kick in the nuts. Streaming games sounds great in theory but awful in practice. Not to mention you're only renting those games. This is a terrible fucking deal.

    Time Warner Business Class Internet

    That definitely sounds about right. They're setting up service for our entire business complex (at&t's shitty T1 is the only option here currently), and TWC has been very 'meh' in the customer service side of things. But I don't really care as long as their uptime is very solid/reliable/consistent.

    Time Warner Business Class Internet

    Does anyone here have them at their office/place of work? How has their uptime SLA treated you? The reason I ask is because we're considering a couple different VoIP phone options. One of them has their own dedicated T1 line (would only be used for the phones), and redundancy is always nice...

    Network Monitoring Tool

    We have several computers connected to a firewall (which is also acting as a DHCP server) and someone is using a lot of bandwidth. While I could certainly do some QoS, I'd like to track down the computer (and thus the user) that is using the most bandwidth. Is there a good networking...
