There are some different ways to address this. Here are the main ones: Raspberry Pi (my personal favorite) As you said, you can attach your drives to a Raspberry Pi, and set it up to serve their content to the network. This is my favorite choice, since it isn't limited to what you want, but it allows a whole new world of possibilities (and learning!). You ...

The way u have the hub connected it is doing nothing. if the inet connection you have only has 1 external IP address (no DHCP) I think I would have set it up this way: a router (where A is) with 5 (or more) ports connected to the internet. You could use a one port to a 4 or 5 port hub. All other routers connected to the main router or hub. Router A must be ...

If you need a "new connection", you can use a VPN service. If you only need something temporary, Opera just announced a free VPN service in their developer build. Plus you'll be using a new browser so if they had been blacklisting you based on IP and browser previously, you should pass that requirement now. If this still fails, you could install Opera ...

If your testing only involves devices that are located behind your router (ie on your LAN) then you will not need to open any ports on your router. This means you will be safe from external port scanning. If you are running any firewalls on your devices then you will need to add an exception for this port, otherwise you should already be good to go. You ...

I came here for an answer and I found it - check both ends of the tester, which I normally would have done, but the cable spanned a house, through the attic, and behind a safe. I tested the "bad" cable with the same tester as illustrated, and it tested OK - except that I was looking at only the "controller" side (big part), the real info is at the other end, ...

If you're willing to pay then i would recommend Deadline 7.2 http://www.thinkboxsoftware.com/ It's what we use for send jobs to our render farm You setup one machine as a slave and submit jobs to it through Maya, Nuke,3ds max, Or any editing software really. It's relatively easy to setup as well. You can use the machine you work on as your server once ...

After fiddling with router settings, I found the solution. Namely, my wireless mode was set to 802.11b+g+n. By changing that to 802.11g+n, my PC is seeing my home network and connects to it without a hitch. I don't know how or why that helped, but it did, and I'm not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth. Hopefully this answer will help someone else ...

I would set up a local DNS server, to do internal resolving, if I were you. Try dnsmasq on a linux (raspberry pi) box. Set up the ip-to-hosts resolving in /etc/hosts on the linux box that will run dnsmasq. Then fire up dnsmasq on that linux box, and by default, it will read /etc/hosts. Then make sure that the client PCs that need to do the resolving are ...

Did you connect the box to the WAN port of the Linksys? If so, try to connect the box to a switch port on the Lynksys. You should deactivate the DHCP server on the Linksys too.

Cat. 5 10/100/1000MbE* Category 5 cable is a currently outdated standard that provides support for up to 100Mhz operation. It can be used for 10/100 Ethernet without worry, however for longer runs of 1000MbE it is recomended to use Cat. 5e or higher. Cat. 5e 10/100/1000MbE Category 5e cable provides support for frequencies up to 100Mhz. Cat. 5e ...

Gigabit requires cat5e, and 10gbps requires cat6 ( and even the cards are extremely expensive, let alone switches ). The cables are backward compatible.

Category-5E cables can run 1000BASE-T, but they cannot run 10GBASE-T. The cables must be installed to the standards: 1000BASE-T requires all four pairs, while 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX did not, so there are some non-standard patch cables and implementations which claim to be Category-5E, but do not follow the Category-5E standards, and this will only allow the ...

Using DD-WRT, it has a default maximum of 4096 open connections. You can change this setting You might want to check http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=404846 and https://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Router_Slowdown#Increasing_Max_Connection_count_beyond_limits_of_GUI

This is possible. When a program like torrent makes lots of connections, it causes the router to be very busy doing routing and may neglect to do other router duties. You would want to limit the amount of connections on your torrent program anyway, because too many connections will slow down your torrent. You should be able to confirm this by temprarily ...
