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

    No worries. It was a tangly issue but no fault of yours! I had broken out wireshark, found a python example to dump out multicast, and subbed to the ip/port used by the hdhomerun (which is ssdp). I was seeing all kinds of traffic including the hdhomerun itself broadcasting out, it just never...

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

    upgrading from 30t -> 30u solved the problem. Hat tip to a post I found on reddit here: I sent the guy a pm and he let me know 30u solved the issue. Flashed that, issue fixed.

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

    I moved the hdhomerun and a laptop over to a dumb switch, works. Super weird that some multicast is working (ie chromecast's are still working!) but the hdhomerun is not. Of interest I can also see the hdhomerun beacon out (ie windows sees it and adds it to 'networking'. And I can see...

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

    Seems multi-cast is working properly on the network except for that one device. I found a little python snippet i was able to test on several hosts w/ the right ip and port and i see the packets flying around from all the hosts trying to discover, but none from the device itself.

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

    A bit confusing because everything i've read is that if no igmp is configured, the hardware should flood all ports. And come to think of it, this was working previously for me when I had the Brocade connected to the old switch. The 6610 was connected to two devices via the 40g ports (running in...

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

    Are there any settings you recommend? I'd tried this before and tried both active and passive (ip multicast active/passive) with no luck.

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

    Hey Folks, I've been trying to sort this out for the entire evening but I can't track it down! I have a ICX6610-48p which I just recently moved everything over to from another managed switch. When I restarted one of my docker containers I noticed it was no longer able to detect my hdhomerun...

    Ruckus Wireless as an Unifi alternative?

    Hey fohdeesha, Did you and up-n-atom ever make any progress on adding 2.5G sfp support to ICX firmware?

    Is this even real?

    What's the link?

    Firewall Solution with nice Live packet filter view?

    opnsense a fork of pfsense (many years ago) also has the same thing. https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/9783985/32417781-0af17704-c25f-11e7-88df-bc87d9469c10.png Edit: There is also real time filtering, and its likely also avail over the rest api (though ive not looked)

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

    @fohdeesha Could also ask for ebay profile of any person who want's a license. It would be easy to see the switch purchase in the users history and provide an 'identity'. It's reasonable to expect some history on the profile as well, buying a switch should not be your first trip to ebay :) nor...

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

    The MTU isn't detected typically, its set by device. Where you likely ran into trouble was enabling jumbo frames, and then enabling 9000MTU on your pfsense interface. Is that accurate was pfsense lan nic set to jumbo frames? Edit: If you think of your typical $30 8 port unmanaged switch from...

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

    I don't know enough about the brocade stuff to tell you if the MTU is set per port only, or can be set per port, per vlan. Keep in mind though, what that is really controlling is the max MTU that the switch will allow to pass through without fragmentation. Then there is the MTU you configure...

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

    Ultimately, you probably do not want to run your normal lan at jumbo frames. Lots of consumer grade stuff as you've discovered will not play nice. The solution is to create a storage vlan for esxi and any other devices you may want to have higher MTU fast access to freenas. I don't have...

    Did you need jumbo frames for ESXi for vm storage? Or for the vm's themselves?

    Brocade ICX-6450 DHCP problems with certain IoT devices

    Ah, that makes sense. I have multiple VLAN's but I have not been concerned with routing substantial amounts of traffic between them (or any, as i've mostly used them for isolation) Nor do I have the pleasure of having 10GE or 40GE at this time (though I am stalking ebay for a switch). I'm an...

    Brocade ICX-6450 DHCP problems with certain IoT devices

    Why not just use the pfsense DHCP? You would need to add a VLAN to pfsense which I assume is already done to route the traffic and then go enable DHCP on it. No reason to use the DHCP from the switch. Or were you running both DHCP servers by accident?

    Almost picked up a 6610-48P for $130 today with two PSU's but i was busy at office and someone beat me to it before i could accept the counter offer :(

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

    Yeah that's a strange one. If you have dhcp on still that could certainly cause issues. Other than that you need to diagnose where the breakdown is.

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

    On another hard wired box, ping the UAP-AC and leave it running. What would be ideal to determine is, if there is any packet loss to the AP itself, or if the problem exists solely between the UAP and the Bike. Are you running your ssid with both 2.4 and 5ghz on the same ssid? Try creating...
