    Brocade 6450 multiple lan rooting

    Hi, I recently upgrade my home switch from a 16 ports netgear GS116E with a Brocade 6450 24 ports. Everything was directly plugged in the switch. I have a simple architecture : a network 192.168.1.x used by default between the ISP modem (Freebox server) and the ISP IPTV box (Freebox player)...

    EU Some Brocade switches (ICX 6610 etc)

    Yes ! I am also thinking to get a 48 in order to be more future proof. Thermal dissipation won't be that much different so silent operation are possible.

    UK (UK) Need a 12U cabinet!

    If you want something cheap and reliable, I advise HEJNE from IKEA ( HEJNE 1 section, pin, 78x50x171 cm - IKEA ). With additional parts, you can have almost every kind of setup. Between 2 height, 2U fits perfectly. To suits your need of 12U you just have to cut the 4 main feets (I did it to fit...

    X10SRL-F BIOS protected

    Hi, I got a X10SRL-F on eBay but upon testing it, the BIOS is password protected. I ask the seller but he doesn't have it. I try a couple of default one, but nothing so far. Is there a way to circumvent that or is sending it back the only solution ? Cheers, Serge

    Looking for a SFP+ network card (Win2019)

    Hi, I am looking for a 10gb network card with a SFP+ interface. I already have an Asus one with Aquantia chip, but I have some drop of connection regularly so I want to move on something more "server", like Chelsio or Intel. It needs to be 2U compatible, and ideally not too power hungry...

    X10SDV-4C-TLN2F $229.90

    I was the one who bought you the 2 boards (and you disclose every problems they had). I assume it was an overheating problems so I manage to have a new heatskink for the CPU (+ noctua 60mm fan) and a noctua 40mm fan on the ethernet chipset. Both fan runs at max speed but are inaudible in rack...

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

    With a new cable, everything worked fine. The right config for the serial cable is this one : DTE Pinouts RTS (1), DTR(2), TXD (3), GND (4), GND (5), RXD (6), DSR (7), CTS (8) S.

    thanks ! Looking at the pinout on the RJ45, mine wasn't the same ( DSD TECH Câble SH-RJ45P USB vers Console avec Puce PL2303RA pour commutateurs de routeurs Cisco 1.8M / 5.9FT: Amazon.fr: High-tech ), so that might explain why I did not see any prompt !

    Advice for a switch >= 24ports / 1gb

    thanks for your answer ! I already own a 4 ports 10gb SFP from Mikrotik. I am happy with it but I need more ports and ideally on one applicance rather than many. I found some interested thread about Brocade switch. Looks very interesting !

    Advice for a switch >= 24ports / 1gb

    Hi, I own a Netgear GS116v2 (16 ports 1gb). All ports are used and I frequently see interface going from 1000mb to 100mb. Usually, I just unplug/plug the RJ45 jack and it gets back to 1000mb but I suspect this switch is a little bit under performing for my setup. I am looking for a switch...
