Networking hardware includes the physical devices facilitating the use of a computer network. Typically, networking hardware includes gateways, routers, network bridges, modems, wireless access points, networking cables, line drivers, switches, hubs, and repeaters. But it also includes hybrid network devices such as multilayer switches, protocol converters, bridge routers, proxy servers, firewalls, network address translators, multiplexers, network interface controllers, wireless network interface controllers, ISDN terminal adapters and other related hardware.

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

Need to run direct burial CAT5E with telephone signal lines and intend to terminate with RJ11 plugs.
I find that the wire insulation diameter is a bit large to assemble the cable end into the plug.  
I suppose that I could terminate the CAT5E cable with a modular jack and then use a telephone cord (RJ11-RJ-11) from there.
Yet, the same issue isn't anticipated on RJ45 plugs.
Is there a wire diameter (including insulation) specification for RJ11 that's smaller than for RJ45?

Hi, the title said it all. Can anyone draft me some pros and cons of stacking switches?

And is it possible to simulate this techniques in GNS3, Packet Tracer or something else?

When you use NIC Teaming do the NIC have to be connected to the switch?

I'm buying a NIC card to add to our server and they come in 2 or 4 ports.  Do all ports have to be connected to the switch to Team them?

Trying to set up internet for home use with the ability to fail over to a second internet connection (such as cellular). Since my phone and security system are both internet based, I just want to see if there is a (cheap) way to ensure device connections stay up if the primary internet goes down. Since the phone and security devices are not tied to a particular external IP, having them suddenly move to a different external IP is not a cause for concern.

I know best practice for business is to fail over to a different ISP, but since this is for home use I'll say that isn't required here.

I'll figure out which ISPs later. Right now just looking for hardware recommends and how it should be configured.

I have a Dell 6110 storage array (Equallogic 10GBE iscsi SAN) that I want to scrub clean before I sell it.  What is the best way to go about this to ensure it is securely erased and the data is irretrievable? There are (24) 6 GB drives in it.

I need a L3 switch that can respond to two IP addresses.
ex: Two subnets of 10.10.0.0 and 10.20.0.0 can use one L3 switch as the default gateway because it responds to 10.10.0.1 and 10.20.0.1.

Does the HP 2910al-48g have this functionality?

I've looked in the manual and can't find anything regarding that. (Maybe that means the capability isn't there?)

We are being told by an outside technical consulting firm that we cannot upgrade servers until our entire network infrastructure has been replaced.  I need an experts opinion on the scenario and comments made by them (below).

For reasons too lengthily to go into here we are still running our internal domain on W2K3 servers. All of the desktops and laptops are "newer" machines running Windows 7 or 10.  We vertualized the BDC's and member servers 2 years ago but are still running the PDC on old (ancient) hardware.  The new server we verualized the other servers on is intended and capable of running a new domain (built from scratch) on Windows Server 2016.

Our current network infrastructure is built on Cat5 cabling installed circa 2001 and our switches are 10/100 with gigabit dual mode (62.5) fiber up-links. These are old and due for replacement also. Our facilities are spread out through several buildings nearly a city block long.  We have obtained quotes to rewire with a combination of single mode fiber and Cat6 cabling to the desktops, WAPS, etc. Those quotes came in around $100K which is some pretty bitter medicine to swallow at this time.

I suggested to the consulting firm that we move forward with the switch replacement using single mode capable units that we can configure to 100Megabit on all ports and proceed with the domain server upgrade.  Their response was as follows:

"we need to have a solid infrastructure in place in order to put the best

Trying to figure out if I could use one of these new wi-fi mesh router systems in 10K sq ft office.  Wi-fi coverage is sometimes intermittent - using a Sonicwall TZ215 router and Tp-Link PoE hub with 2 additional tp-link EAP 330 access points.  Advantage of the Sonicwall router is antivirus and firewall.  
Advantage of the wi-fi mesh systems (eero, Velop, Orbi, etc) would be the complete wi-ficoverage.  Is the firewall in these good enough?
If not, what would be a good alternative?

Hi,

Configuration Raspberry Pi 3 with camera
QNAP TS-453 Pro

I have a Raspberry Pi 3 up and running with the help of this image: http://ronnyvdbr.github.io/RaspberryIPCamera/
The guy who developed the image has a blog where he describes how to connect the Raspberry to Survellance Station:
https://random-notes-of-a-sysadmin.blogspot.nl/2016/03/howto-set-up-raspberry-ip-camera-on.html

I tried it and can connect to Surveillance Station, using these settings:

Camerabrand:       Generic Model
CameraModel:      Generic RSTP
Cameraname:        Camera 1
HTTP URL:              /
IP address:             192.168.10.10
Port:                        80
RSTP Port:              8554
Username:             <empty>
Password:              <empty>

When I use the rstp url in VLC, it works great: rtsp://192.168.10.10:8554
On Surveillance Station, every now and then the connection works, the camera in connected and I can see what it's filming.
After less than a minute the camera is disconnected.

For now it looks like the only times I had a successful connection when I played the stream in VLC as well....
But I can not reproduce that, because it's not working this way every time....

What could be the cause of this ?

I have dell poweredge r710 with below hard drives:
3 - 250GB 7.2k SAS
4 - 600GB 15k SAS

I was thinking this raid configuration:
3 - 250GB 7.2k SAS on raid 5 (this partition to install ESXi 6.5 host)
4 - 600GB 15k SAS on raid 6 (this partition as datastore for VMs)

Is this recommended or there is something which can be done better? Please advise.

I pay $222/month and I get:

- Land line
- FIOS Internet
- Cable TV

But I watch only a few channels and feel ripped off.

What options do I have?

I like having a land line for a phone conversation that is near perfect, which I sometimes need for job interviews.

My cell reception from home is not terrible, but it fluctuates. Hence, the cell network would be a high cost way to get Internet access.

I really do not want to go up on my roof, three stories up to put a put on a satellite dish. Plus, I may not be living here much longer.

Do I have any options?

Thanks.

I am expanding. So, got a fiber optics internet service. Provides 4Mbps unlimited download. This is a great leap from the limited download we currently have.

Most of my IP phones and computers are connected through the switch, but a good number of connections are still through wireless. I run 4 different rooms in one building 2 on the ground floor. 1 on the first floor and another on the second floor.

I will like to know the sort of switch. router. I should seriously consider to have a seamless operation.

Note. I currently use: for switch Netgear fs726tp ( the poe went out last year due to thunder storm). So, need another POE especially for my ip phones.  from the existing network currently use a  Huawei E5172 4G router. and I have lan run every where.

should add: have about: 18-23 employees now which can grow up to 40 within a short period of 6-8 months. Also, I am not in for fancy tools. Just something effective. In fact. I buy most of my items on ebay!
Thank you.

Hi, I need to setup security cameras, the one my friend bought is;
https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/swann-4-channel-720p-dvr-with-4-x-pro-t835-cameras-swdvk-4720p4-swann/ 

Just wanted to ask if anyone has setup devices similar to this? Need some instructions on how to set it up and how to make it available on mobile devices.

Thanks.

Hi People,
I have a client (friend) that owns a gym with a QSee security system. His modem is CGNM 2250 (ISP is Shaw in Canada). He wants to be able to remotely monitor his system (view the QSee screen) on his mobile phone. I am doing this job as a favour. Give me a personal computer to fix and I am your man but I know next to nothing about port forwarding.
Could somebody explain the basics (how to) of port forwarding to me or give me a link here in EE or externally which will help me out.
I do have a few questions to ask.
1) Is the QSee MAC address required to set up the port forwarding?
2) The QSee instructions mention ports 80 and 85 but when I input 80 and or 85 into the modem it won't accept it. Should I be
inserting 4 digits (IE 8000)?
3) After doing all sorts of work and making some changes to the modem and the QSee system he just told me he used to be able to monitor the system on his old phone and he just wanted me to be accessible on his new phone. The changes I made were to take over a gaming port on the modem and making it 8510 and UDP/TCP. Following the QSee directions I UNCHECKED get IP address automatically.
3A  Should I be using UDP or TCP or both?
3B  Should get IP address automatically be unchecked?
Sorry about the rambling question but I am starting from scratch.
Thanks

At one location, I am currently using a Cradlepoint router for this because the failover is using a cell service and the Cradlepoint has the modem built in.  For this location, I do not use cell service and looking for suggestions for a router at a lower price point.  One option is Ubiquiti.

Please only comment if you have experience with what you are suggesting for or against.  Thank you.
