    Ruckus Wireless as an Unifi alternative?

    Anyone here have much experience with the Guest network? I set one up for the when the family visited over Thanksgiving and every user (regardless of device type/OS) had to login twice. First time would always fail, second time would work. Is this a known thing, or anyone have any thoughts on...

    Brocade ICX Series (cheap & powerful 10gbE/40gbE switching)

    I replaced mine with Mechatronix, they've been perfect for me. Best bet is sticking a fan on the ASIC as well, makes all the difference.

    Make sure the fan is attached to the ASIC heat sink, not the case. I used screws and just screwed right into the fins of the heat sink. Been great for almost 2 years now.

    To go with the supercomputer they're selling. Mentor Graphics Veloce2 Quattro "System on Chip" SoC RTL Emulator Supercomputer | eBay That's a lot of switches, lol.

    My 7250-48P pulls around 55W with a few PoE cams attached. I'm still convinced the 7250 is THE best L3-10G switch for homelab use - considering low power draw, fairly low noise (moddable even moreso) and switching power, plus it's a fairly recent/supported design.

    This is what I did. The secret sauce is slapping a fan on the ASIC and changing out the fans. https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/brocade-icx-series-cheap-powerful-10gbe-40gbe-switching.21107/page-159#post-256375

    It sounds janky, but honestly, just drive the screws right into the heat sink. Well-sized and threaded will grip right to the fins very securely. That's how I did it.

    I'm biased since I wrote a lot of the posts, but for the 7250, I'm all in on the Mechatronics for the rear fans, and the single Sunon for the ASIC fan. Pay close attention to the model numbers in the posts. And if it's cranking up every so often, probably a room temp/airflow issue, so do...

    Just to jump in on this - I want to be sure you purchased the Sunon (or similar) fan for the ASIC as well - that's sort of the magic that makes this all work. You also need to have it when you crimp the rest of the fans since you need to wire it in to fan 3 (assuming you're doing all 3 fan headers).

    Agreed, we have no way of knowing for sure. I remember reading your post about the PSU popping and letting out an audible groan. For anyone going forward, my best rule of thumb is to match the replacement components as closely to the originals in terms of performance. I'm going off the...

    So I'm going to totally disagree and say you can do it safely. I modified a 48P and quieted it down quite a bit. It's been running for a year continuously in a poorly ventilated closet under moderate POE load with no issues. That said, I feel terrible for tubs - that is NOT something I'd want to...

    Did you order from Mouser? They have them in stock right now (that's where I bought mine from).

    Just find two screws long enough to pass through the fan and grip to the heat sink. It sounds clunky AF, but it actually works and is very clean. No pics, I'm not pulling that sucker out of the rack, sorry.

    Ah, they were in stock when I purchased a few weeks ago. Ugh. Yes, you def want the 3 wire. Hopefully they come back in stock again soon. You would be able to sleep next to this
