Does Spectrum in your area charge $5/mo to lease you one that has wifi? If so, get a modem-only (well, I think they're all technically eMTAs now) modem from Spectrum and buy your own router (this thread can help recommend one).

Popping in for some help, again, please, because I have a weird thing happening. Here's my home network:

code:

	        ISP 
          (gigabit fiber)
                 |
                 |
            wired router 
           (Ubiquiti ER-X)
              /         \
             /           \
        desktop       wireless router 
                      (ASUS RT-N56U)
                            |
                            |
                         laptop

It seems that when I run some SQL scripts from my work laptop, it does ~*something*~ which causes the wired router to become completely unresponsive. The internet for the entire home dies, both wifi and wired, and I can't even reach the ER-X router through my desktop. The only solution is to cycle the power on the ER-X.

This doesn't happen every time nor for every SQL script, but it sure as hell seems to happen when I start queries. It never happens when I'm only using my personal desktop. I'll be doing some testing this weekend to see if I can replicate it with any consistency.

But so that I know if I'm completely insane: is this even possible? Could the router be having some kind of... I don't know, allergic loving reaction to the SQL code? Is it the spike in network traffic? What would you be looking for if you were trying to test this out?

Trabant posted:

The only computer I run SQL from is the work laptop, so that shouldn't be it (if I understood your question). But if I need to check those multiple-connection settings on the laptop, I'm all ears.

It's a fairly vanilla MS SQL Server connection to a company server through our VPN, at least to the best of my understanding.

1) Where is your VPN client running?
2) Do you have hwnat enabled on the ER-X?

Assuming Amazon's stock hasn't changed, I tried ordering the SBG8300 on Tuesday, and they were looking at new shipments of those not arriving until July. I got the CM1200 for $20 more.

edit: Correction, I was ordering an SBG8200. I also prefer to not have my wifi and modem in the same box, so CM1200 it was.

I mean I already have Spectrum and a USG3 / AP Lite, so the networking equipment wasnt the issue, just the fact that I would need a new modem. And they foot the bill for the rental, which is nice. They shot me down for the free upgrade anyway, so it is a moot point.


E: Is there a non unifi switch that can power an AP AC-Lite or three? I don't mind not having my switch out of the Unifi ecosystem and don't need any fancy stuff like VLANS

I'm in the process of moving into a new apartment and I'm wondering what wifi solutions I should consider to get a good signal from my router (X) to my PC (Y):



I'm on a 500 mbit package from my ISP, so I'd like something that can manage near that speed via wifi. Does anyone have suggestions which products to consider?

I don't want to go on living the boring life of a celestial forever.



I'm trying to figure out an issue I'm having with my Archer C7 that's causing the 2.4 ghz network on it to slow to a crawl (below 1mbps on a 300 mbps connection, to be clear). LAN always gives me what I'd expect and the 5Ghz network seems to keep chugging along while this is happening. Resetting seems to fix it for a little while but it always comes back after some time.

My setup is basically isp modem --> c7 --> a couple of devices and aps. The ap networks work fine as well, so I'm pretty sure its something specifically with the C7. Could it be that the 2.4Ghz radio is dying? How could I check that?

So maintaining 500mbit over WiFi is a tall order, especially if any walls are in play.

In general, with 802.11ac, good speeds with walls is anything above 250mbps. For example, I have a two story home and my devices get about 285mbps from just about anywhere (3-node Netgear Orbi RBR50 setup).

You could spring for a WiFi 6 compatible setup like the RBR850 (AX6000 chipset). That might get you a little more but youíre still dealing with physics - i.e. walls are still gonna mess you up. Nevermind the fact that the RBR850 is like $800 for a router + satellite and sold out most places.

Assuming you canít run hardwire somehow, I would get something like the Orbi RBR50 (802.11ac). The one advantage you get there is it uses multiple 5GHz radios on the backend as the backhaul to eek out a little more performance.

For example, my setup looks like:

- EdgeRouter 4 ó via hardwire cat6a ó> Orbi A
- Orbi A ó via wireless backhaul ó> Orbi B
- Orbi B ó via hardwire cat6a ó> Alienware desktop

That setup gets me in the 360-400mbps range. If used the WiFi NIC in the Alienware desktop instead, itíd get around 300mbps. You *might* eek out an extra 50-100mbps with the more expensive WiFi 6 routers but I donít think itís worth it.

Also - keep in mind that most things you do donít require much more than 100mbps outside of straight up downloading bigass files. Streaming 4K UHD content is <50mbps and latency matters more in gaming than raw speed.

TL;DR: Get something like the Netgear Orbis that has a dedicated wireless backhaul if youíre trying to maximize speed - youíll get around 350-400mbps depending on placement and what the walls are made of. Googleís Nest WiFi or the Eero products donít have the dedicated backhaul.

Generally Asus WiFi adapters are a good bet: https://www.asus.com/us/Networking/...pters-Products/

If itís stationary, get something with full blown antennas like the USB-AC68. I have the variant of that that is PCI-E (PCE-AC68) and itís a solid device.

IMHO you're never going to have a totally reliable USB adapter because of the multiple USB standards and lovely chipsets that currently populate the USB dominion.

On a laptop you're definitely better off with a mini-PCIe solution if your laptop has a slot for one; with desktops you gotta go with a PCIe card. Intel makes the best WiFi hardware IMHO.

Get one from Amazon and keep the packaging. If it shits the bed return it as defective and make amazon pick it up. It's hidden behind a "show more return options". UPS will come right to your door and pick it up. Update to latest firmware and drivers but fail fast - those products continue to exist because people put up with it. Returning it as defective costs the manufacturer a mountain of money from Amazon.

I almost think that the best thing to do for good Wifi is to scavenge an Intel wireless adapter like an 8625 or some poo poo, throw it into a mini-PCIe to USB enclosure, and then drill holes for stupid big antennas.

Garrand posted:

Kind of a tough one with the limited troubleshooting capabilities of ISP routers. If this device is eating up the DHCP pool it still shouldn't effect the desktop as long as it's connected since the router will just keep giving it the same address forever. Once the pool runs out it just rejects new device requests. This device may also be trying to set it's own IP addressing apart from DHCP for some reason. Do you have any smart tvs on the network at all? Those are notorious for just grabbing and keeping IP addresses forever, often holding onto multiple addresses at a time because they suck.

If it is actually an IP conflict, the best way to tell would be to ARP ping the IP address from another device when the desktop is acting up. I don't know what your other devices are but it doesn't look like there's a good way to do it in windows without downloading third party software. The reason I say ARP ping specifically is that all devices have to respond to ARP whereas a lot of devices will ignore regular pings (windows devices have ICMP responses disabled by default).

Without downloading third party software, you could do this, from another (windows) device:
arp -d //clears the arp table
ping [ip address of desktop] //see if anything responds
arp -a //shows the arp table, see if you see a mac address for the ip in question and if it actually matches the mac from the desktop

if one of those other devices does happen to be linux it may have arping in it (or it can easily be installed) where you just run it like a normal ping so
arping [ip address]
and that's it. See if some other unexpected device responds.

So it happened again... from the other machine, ping responds and the arp table mac addresses indeed matches the desktop

I physically unplugged the desktop afterwards and plugged it back in, and that also resolved the problem

Weird :\

I'm now wondering whether it's a software problem on the desktop itself, although I have no idea what could cause that either

Revisiting my ideas for getting wired Ethernet to my living room, opinion check on two options:

Scenario: My living room / TV area basically is right above the fireplace which actually juts out over the edge of my house, deleting any easy access from the garage below.

1. The PO already had a low-voltage guy add a cable jack to feed the TV, which I discovered he basically did outside the house already. Punched a hole in the stucco outside the garage, and then underneath the fireplace. Itís not in a conduit, just bare RG whatever. I could MoCA this to a little switch and then feed all my devices, but thatís too easy. Since the dude already knocked holes in the exterior, thinking about just following this path, but adding a conduit (PVC or metal?) that Iíll run the cable inside.

2. Knock some holes in drywall in a closet, try to bring up runs from the garage, run under a cabinet, knock out two more holes in the wall, an old fireplace wall and then end up where I need.

Number 2 is all interior which is appealing but is a lot of hole punching to get stuff where I need it to go. Number 1 is outside but it already did the work of putting a goddamned exterior hole in, and if I add conduit, I should be able to use my Monoprice Cat6 solid core (right?).

In either case, I think I want to run 6-8 drops to feed an AP, at least a TV and ATV and then spares for future stuff like consoles. What size conduit should I be looking at for that (plus I guess Iíll keep a coax in there).

I don't buy Ubiquiti to continually diddle with poo poo, I buy it because when new wifi tech comes out, I just swap out the AP and otherwise it will run until the heat death of the universe.

Google wifi helps me out by letting me see their ap's remotely. Means when my inlaws complain that their internet is slow I can just tell them to plug back in the kitchen puck or to call frontier because I can't get to anything.

Yeah I had the same experience. One day I'd go to access the controller or ssh into the Pi to discover the whole thing was dead. In one case I was able to revive the SD card but I had to flatten and restore several times.

Some people use free/cheap VPS instances but security aside, I'd be worried about accidentally killing my WAN connection. Seems like it would be just like changing your settings over wifi and accidentally making your APs unreachable, not that I would know

PiHole runs on anything if you use this docker stuff: https://github.com/pi-hole/docker-p...aster/README.md . I don't own any RPi's. It does churn disk though just like the unifi controller, so make sure you are writing to sturdy media.

You could use nextdns.io as your resolver as configured by the ER-4. That's what I'm using - I'm quite happy with it. Though my setup is a little more complex as I'm using a separate appliance to act as a DNS forwarder via unbound so that I can force DNS-over-TLS.

That's the main thing missing with EdgeRouters for me - no builtin DNS-over-TLS. Makes me sad.

I've made a huge mistake.


I run my PiHole on a 1B+ without issue (last reboot was Feb). If anything, it's too reliable so I forget keep on top of updates. It now emails me whenever there's raspbian updates, I just need to do the same for the Pi-Hole software itself.

I'm running some ethernet from my office to the basement - there's a (finished) stretch in my basement through which I haven't been able to feed cable fish line. However, I noticed that there is an unused piece of coax cable that is fed through this stretch.

Is there a ethernet-to-coax adapter I could use to run through this stretch? Or would I be better off really taping a piece of ethernet cable to the coax cable and pulling it through? The coax cable feels pretty loose and easy to pull back and forth through the stretch so this might work.

EDIT: Most of the poo poo I see looks pretty expensive - I think I'll just pull the cable through using the coax.

You can do either. For the coax, I believe you'd need a pair of MOCA adapters to make it work, and if that coax is connected to the outside you'd need a filter to go between the outside connection and your house.
