    [WTB US-MD] Super Micro SuperServer 5018D-FN8T (or the like)

    I want to replace my Unifi Dream Machine Pro and go with a custom system / setup and I am ideally looking for something like the SuperMicro SuperServer 5018D-FN8T - primarily because it has at least one 10Gbit / SFP+ and a handful of 1Gbit ports and a beefy enough CPU for what it is supposed to...

    Switch inter-vlan routing with only WAN traffic going to a firewall

    I have a Brocade ICX 6450 with router firmware. There are two VLANs 9 and 100. Both have a tagged port 1/1/1 that goes to an OpenWRT router. The OpenWRT router serves as DHCP server and firewall to WAN. I have been struggling for weeks now to configure this correctly. What I want...

    Router for upgrade to 10 Gigabit WAN at home

    I'll be upgrading my home internet connection to 10 Gigabit fiber in March. Because of this, I'll need to upgrade my router from a Mikrotik RB4011 since it only has a single SFP+ port, and I need 2x SFP+ for WAN and LAN. I've been looking at the MikroTik CCR2004-1G-12S+2XS, but I'm open to any...

    10gbe IPoIB (Infiniband) bridge

    Hello all, I was thinking, for my living room where I have quite a few servers running (silent !), to do a custom 10gbe IPoIB setup. In my lab room I could use the Voltaire 4036 (non-E version unfortunately) which I still need to find a way to silence. It's way too noisy even for the server...

Is this normal for home routers? I expected less than half of that on a directly connected link. Following is the command I'm using...

    Ubiquiti EdgeRouter X Advanced Gigabit ER-X 256MB 5-port

    Can't edit the title. Sheesh. $40, not $50 We have a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter X that we used very briefly, but it just wasn't for us. Nice router, solidly built, and highly configurable.
