    What would you recommend I do about a congested network segment?

    Hey, I manage a network at an outdoor restaurant we have a single subnet with a ton of devices. We have occasional gremlins and I am trying to figure out why. It's not terrible, but there's issues with reliability now and then - mostly latency issues (I think) which usually get noticed when...

    New Network and Server Stack

    Hey folks, I’ve been noticing that my UnRaid server is getting a tad long in the tooth in terms of speed of docker containers running and the VMs. Granted the server is running on an old FX-8320 and 16GB of DDR3 ram. So I think it’s time to upgrade but I don’t know which path to take...

    Documenting your network

    So I'm well past the point where I can keep it all in my head, and only with some effort and a bit of walking between rooms can work it out by direct observation and fooling with the managed switch UIs... So I'm mostly scrawling and erasing a diagram in a notebook to keep track of what ports of...

    Moving offices into a shared space with existing networking

    We're a small design studio that is moving from our own huge office to a big co-working space (also with our own – much smaller – office). We're pretty excited about all the other people/work environment, but it also has its drawbacks – and one of them is the networking side of things. I'm...
