I've been looking for a cheap PoE+ switch that fulfills the following criteria:
at least 8 PoE+ ports (1GbE or 2.5GbE)
10GbE uplink port (preferably SFP+)
managed (to configure VLANs)
low idle power consumption
not too loud (will be deployed in a residential building's...
I recently got 2gig internet from Frontier (I am getting around 2.3gbe at the router) and want to revamp my home network to take advantage of the new speed and had some questions getting started. Before this I was stuck at 25-50mbps, so didn't ever really worry about any of my equipment. The...
I almost jumped on this, but had to read the fine print because I thought it was something like a screw or switch, or something. But the I spotted the Postage pricing.
Still could be a good deal, but it's such a shady listing practice that I don't fancy...
I have been looking into ways to get 10Gbit networking capability to an Apple Silicon Macbook.
At first I thought that the only viable options are:
- Purpose-built 10GBase-T thunderbolt adapters. Still not sure which are apple silicon compatible.
- SFP+ thunderbolt adapters (more flexible, but...
I want to build a low power ceph cluster!
Rejected Xeon "X79" LGA2011 etc
I've considered getting some old Xeon LGA2011 or whatever servers from AliExpress which would make cost low, ECC RAM abundant and IO aplenty. But they'll probably idle at at least 60W each for just the...
Software company I work for are starting to check how secure home labs are. Good idea but means I need to get a few things redesigned.
I need to build a more secure zone in my home network in to which I can deploy and run various VM’s.. I was planning to convert my home network to 10GBE (mainly...
Hello whoever finds this,
I am standing up my first 10Gb server and I'm encountering some issues. According to the manual and the bios this motherboard has an Intel x540-AT2 nic built in but I cannot get speeds beyond 1Gb to my 2.5Gb capable switch. I have dug into the BIOS and cannot set the...
My house has a 10-year-old Cat 6 network with home runs to the IT closet. None of the network cables should be over 50m or so. I'm assuming I can get 10 GbE out of them, or at the very least multigigabit.
Currently, I use a Cisco 24-port PoE-enabled switch, and have 4 Ruckus ZoneFlex 7982...
I want to upgrade my custom build TrueNAS to 10GbE. However, I find that the motherboard only remain a PCIe 2.0 x1 (in x16 slot).
I accept the low bandwidth (5GT/s) but I would like to know if the card will fail to work in that slot.
Any recommendations are welcome :) Thank you.
I'm looking at building my first freenas Storage server to store finished projects and edit directly out of. I've decided to go about DIYing it after being unimpressed by the performance/price of Synology and QNAP solutions. My goal for this build was to come up with a more...
I think that's what it's called?
This is in my dmesg

Has anybody used this card? It's an awesome card on paper, that supports both Fibre Channel 16G and 10GBE, but I haven't been able to find much mention of it online. The QLE2462. QLE2562, etc. products dominate the searches. So I'm hoping to find someone with some experience with the cards to...
Hi All, thanks in advance for any help.
I am trying to setup a 10gbe PFSense server on some Supermicro hardware that I bought on eBay. I am trying to figure out if I have enough PCIe lanes for both the 10gbe NIC and a Samsung 970 evo in one of these enclosures. Any thoughts?

I've always ever had a single wireless router in my environment, but as I get into servers that start to serve larger amounts of data and have insecure Internet of Things devices in my network, I think it's time to get into VLAN capable switches and a pfSense firewall.
I don't think I...
I have a homelab setup that consists of a box running FreeNAS serving iSCSI to 2xDL380e Gen8's. I've been using "MT26448 [ConnectX EN 10GigE , PCIe 2.0 5GT/s]" cards, these were ConnectX-2 HP branded single SFP+ port cards. They will not function in ESXi 7.0 as they function as a "legacy"...
