    Gigabit + 10Gb Switches under $550

    I'm assuming by "unmanaged" they mean it doesn't even have a web interface? Seems expensive compared to the Ubiquiti if it doesn't.

    Intel Wireless AC-9260, Where can I got it?

    Model number is 9260NGW. I couldn't find any for sale, so I'm assuming they're all going to OEMs right now.

    Smoking (US) Aquantia 5G/10G Cards for cheap

    One distributor is in China. Another charges a ridiculous handling fee on top of shipping and sales tax. Arrow didn't even have their prices updated to the sale prices until this afternoon. I ordered two cards when their site said they had 15 in stock and got a confirmation that the order was...

    Intel X540-T2 bs X550-T2 in Synology

    The DS1817 is powered by the Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-314 ARM SoC, so I would bet they are using the 10Gb built into the chip.

    The Intel Atom C2000 Series Bug – Why it is so quiet

    Apparently Synology publicly named Intel, and then was forced to retract it. See the 14:29 and 15:36 updates. Intel's Atom C2000 chips are bricking products – and it's not just Cisco hit

    Opinions? 10GB SFP+ to 10GB RJ45 Converter GBIC

    If you're an enterprise with all SFP+ switches and for some reason you need a couple of 10Gbase-T ports, these are a whole lot cheaper than dealing with switch replacements or adds. Most large enterprise network engineers aren't going to want to throw a Netgear switch into their...

    picoPSU and A1SRi-2558F

    I picked up a A1SRi-2558F and am thinking about using a picoPSU with it. I'll be using it as a PFSense system, so I'll only need to add an SSD. Would a 90w picoPSU be sufficient?
