What router does /g/ use?
Is pic related the MadVR of routing?
Same, but found mine on goodwill for $20. Upgraded from an earlier WRT160N and its a huge improvement in terms of LAN transfer speed. I also get to have readyshare, which is nice to have.
Now I just need to find out how to access that readyshare USB storage from the internet.
I use a wireless bridge for wireless bridging, and a router for routing.
Shuttle Celeron running CentOS for routing, and an Aironet 1602e for bridging. All-in-one devices are a wonky, pain-in-the-ass compromise.
Why is it people post in these threads without knowing fucking anything about routers or networking.
Router:Archer c7 ac 1750mbs
Client : galaxy note 4 ac 896mbs
Client: laptop- custom clevo p150sm with Intel 7260 ac 896mbs
Desktop pc wired in to gigabit wth
32gb usb drive used as ftp directly in to the router.
All guest devices can go on 2.4ghz on an open ssd.
Wireless performance is >55 MB/s.
At first I thought I was looking at some kind of sith temple.
Anon you're so full of shit. I've a Ccna amnd work with stacks of switches wired into 10 gig cisco routers. I'm not bringing any old 6540s home to act cool on the chan. My setup works sweet. What's yours fag
god tier router, have gargoyle on mine
I still have the V1. Pic related.
You have the V2. Yours is godlike, mine isn't so much. It has some faulty switch chips.

>All these people that aren't building their own router
>/g/ - Technology
i have the v1 as well and i am in love with it. it is running openwrt
Used to run a Q9400 with 8GB RAM on an ASUS P5Q Premium as a combined router and home server right until the motherboard died. I used Windows Server 2012 R2 on that since I had a couple of Wangblows-only game servers running, and desu it's a lot easier to set that up as a 100% functional router than it is with Linux.
Right now I'm just using this shitty Netgear thing that my ISP gave me, which can't even handle the full 300 mbps of my connection since I don't have the budget to build a new server right now.
I'll probably go with some kind of Linux distro next time when I have the money to get a decent server up again. Been wanting to try getting router and server stuff going on Linux, just lacking the hardware currently.
99.9% of household demands are also just about nothing. Also it's a fun and interesting adventure.
1700 series tops out at only a few Mbps - tops. If you have FiOS or a cable modem, you'd have to spend some serious bank on a Cisco router capable of routing that at wire speed. A cheap-ass Atom or Celeron PC running BSD/Linux/PfSense will spank any Cisco router at a fraction of the cost.
Unless you need to run EIGRP or some other proprietary or seriously advanced feature, you're usually better off using a general-purpose PC.
Using a x86 computer with pfsense as my router.
Some shitty router in bridge mode as wireless access point.
Thinking of moving to openwrt for both, but have to replace the shitty one
Sysadmin on what scale?
I can imagine you use an IGP over the Internet or a /leased line if you have multiple sites
I hope you don't extend L2 over multiple sites at least
Cool, what do you use it for?
Another TL-WR1043N/ND v1 here, running OpenWRT on mine. Has been running very well since switching the stock firmware to OpenWRT. Does about 50-60 Mb/s across the house.
I pretty much tell everyone who asks about network advice to just get TP-Link. Runs really well for the money they ask for their products.
Yes, just static routes. I pull zone data for each site so that hosts can be reached by domain name. Also, I use Samba to propagate netbios names so that shares and printers can easily be browsed and accessed from any site.
I'm a consultant but double as the network administrator for my company. I use IPv6 overwhelmingly for administration, but there are a number of things consumer-grade ISPs block on IPv4 and IPv6, including NetBIOS and SNMP, which makes printing and windows-oriented things a pain. The tunnel makes it one happy LAN, albeit with a little more latency.
Obligatory Edge Router Lite
It's better than all the garbage in this thread for $100. Pair it with an AP and boom.
>Claims to know about networking
>Buys consumer garbage
>FTP not SFTP
>Incorrect notation Mb/s (Bandwidth) MB/s (Transfer Speed)
55 MB/s LAN would mean you're using a 2x2 setup unless you have a 550 Mb/s connection which, in America, is very unlikely. Either way you're not utilizing that 3x3 setup the routers capable of.
I just ordered a D-LINK DIR-822, did I fuck up? It's replacing a Linksys E900.
Reminder that this is going to BTFO every shitty consumer router.
I bought the Netgear AC1750. Just hooked it up today
TL-WR841ND, running OpenWRT 15.05
pretty comfy, serves my needs perfectly. won't buy a new one until this breaks.
also thinking about building a router from Raspberry Pi in the future, like my friend did.
Have the exact same router.
I wanted to love this router, it's really good on paper but no hardware NAT on OpenWRT for it killed my mood (and my packets).
I'm rocking stock fw now, solid as hell.
Dell P3 1ghz running IPCop. 30mbits dosen't even hit 1% cpu usage. 512mb ram is overkill.
Metal cased Switches
You couldn't pay me to go back to consumer or fucking disgustingly tacky gaming routers.
Oh my fucking christ you people are an embarrassment. You claim my notation is wrong!? Are you fucking serious, I specified MB to denote actual MEGA bytes. Yes I'm getting 55 of those across the wlan. Why do you think I wrote what client hardware it's connected too.
>>durr there's no way you're getting 3x3 that the router is capable of.
Yeah no shit im using 2x2 because that's what the two client devices can use and there's no faster than that. Only another ac1750 or above router has that many streams. Wlan speed is not my Internet speed you knob jockeys which is for the record 360/36mbs as my isp uses docsis 3.
Bahah major problems like having double the ram of the second version, or toy mean major problems like intel having to fix their drivers because they could not connect to the c7 properly. They fixed that issue in 2014 angry anon
You're hilarious kid. Jumping on a single spelling error and not even wondering why I would choose ftp. Also why the fuck would I not use MB/s for local transfer speeds. Do you also use bits/sec for hard drive reads and writes?
Upgraded from an Asus RT-N16 to an Archer C7.
Better range, better processor, AC and twice the antennas.
So much better.
Well shit, just came over from /diy/ looking for a QDDTOT thread and here is this thread. Neat.
Anyone got a protip on a ADSL2+ router modem that;
> Supports a/b/g/n.
> Has enough gain to blanket a suburb.
> DD-WRT compatible (not a deal breaker but I'd like to mess with it)
> Can transmit its way out of a faraday cage
> USB storage compatable
> Can be used to beam snugglenets to the moon with nothing more than a pringle tin and an accurate azimuth mount.
I cannot emphasise how important a strong radio is.
My current piece of shit is dropping WiFi connections and falling out of DSL sync every few days. File transfer speed between machines is lucky to hit 100kb/s, and I can't even stream MP3's from my server to my toys without it dicking out on me every 30 seconds.
and you're also hilarious. Alright, I see you are a bit lightheaded faggot. I'll let you know EXACTLY what I meant by those things:
-SSD means Solid State Drive. SSID means Service Set Identifier. SSD != SSID, and this spelling mistake is enough for me to know that you don't really mean this whole "networking" stuff seriously.
-ftp means file transfer protocol. It is capable of transferring data through the network, but it is not encrypted, alas not safe. yes you may use it because common_sense.pak is installed on your system. SCP is generally recommended for moving data safely, since it uses encryption. I bet you also use telnet to access your network devices, right fagget? ;^)
-we use Mbps for general speed measuring in the IT like when we measure drive speed.
You should just shut up and quit /g/. We don't need your almighty "I know everything, better than you" attitude. You should just go back, do your job and learn networking and general IT knowledge properly.
>guest WiFi WPA2-PSK
>internal WiFi WPA-Enterprise (EAP-TLS)
>2xWindows Server 2012 R2 NPS for authentications (that and 2xDCs on separate Supervisors)
All my windows and Linux on internal network, all my game consoles, tablet's, etc on guest.
Asus RT-N18U here. It's the cheap version of the N66U, and it's only missing the gigabit wifi (which I don't use anyway).
Has gigabit ports, can run Tomato, and can do routing at gigabit speeds as well. Perfect and cheap solution for my 500mbit line.
Microwaves, fluorescent lights and any other local source of RF have been ruled out. When it first started glitching I killed every branch on the electrical dizzy board except the one that was powering the router and computers (same branch) and left a desktop and laptop running over a weekend, both machines showed 9 disconnects in event logs at the same times, reporting that the AP could not be found for up to 10 minutes at a time. As far as the (basic) logging onboard the linksys reported, there was no problem over the entire period. My laptop does not drop at home like it does in the shop and I am 2 kilometers from civilisation at this location, there's not much to get in my way out here best as I can tell.
> And operate in 5ghz
a/b/g only on pic related shitbox I'm afraid, though I should have listed that above as a requirement. I just assumed most new hardware would support 802.11ac anyway.
Archer C7 v2 master race. Got it during a flash sale.
Chumpcast keeps sending me bullshit in the mail:
>What's Happening? Your current modem is no longer capable of supporting the speeds of your Xfinity Internet service. To get the most out of your service, we need to replace your existing device with a Wireless Gateway, which we will do at no additional cost.
bitch I don't want your bullshit wireless gateway crap. I already get 180 down through the current one, leave me alone.
>mfw DIR-825 A1 as gateway with WiFi disabled
>half the network is gigabit and half is 10/100
>E3200 running AdvancedTomato acting as an access point
>E1200 running Shibby Tomato in basement acting as access point
>Buffalo WHR-G300N v1 running DD-WRT as an access point upstairs
chickenwire/plaster faraday cage walls suck.
pic. I assure you there's been some heavy handheld swiffer action happening up there since this was taken a couple months ago.
I'd rather have a proper web interface for stuff like that. doesn't matter what the shit's running for just an access point so long as it's stable.
half the network is 10/100 because it's through EOP warts and I'm poor as fuck. else I'd have a nice small dual GigE atom box running the gateway/firewall and be able to afford all the Cat6 to wire up the entire house.
also, that buffalo came with DD-WRT. being Ralink-based it limits what I can do with it so I just updated it to the latest available 2015 build at the time and it's been rock-solid stable. I don't get why people INSIST on using OpenWRT when it doesn't come with any sort of web interface by default. I'm not manually editing iptables if I don't have to.
>mfw that slut poster got banned...twice
>I don't get why people INSIST on using OpenWRT when it doesn't come with any sort of web interface by default.
pretty sure it comes with luci by default. i build my own, so i don't know exactly.
Probably bait, but NASA actually uses the Metric system exclusively.
ISP-supplied default pleb here. It's not fantastic but it gets the job done. I did replace the shitty DSL cable they provided with a higher quality one, which improved my speeds a little bit.
Hey guys, here's a math IRC channel, come hang out:
irc.sublumin.al / #maths
Just finished redoing my home network.
There are some small things that should be done (cable management, but mostly config)
I have two routers to the edge, EdgeRouter Lite and EdgeRouter X SFP, with VRRP on the inside.
Is that any good? Really considering picking up this one. I have like the shittiest and cheapest TP-LINK router (TL-WR842ND), and it often has issues reaching the edges of my apartment.
Have the v1 as well and replaced the antennas with 9dbi ones. This would make my 3-4th year with it. I had DDWRT on it before but switched back to OEM firmware since I no longer needed it to do anything tricky. I'd say it's reliable, barely needs rebooting and speeds are quick.
Is it legal to use standard am radio for a router?
I want to create a long distance (1mile) relay from one building to another. Is it possible to use radio for this purpose? Is it too lossy?
ISR 2951 with an ASA 5510 - Complete waste, we were supposed to bring in 7 PtP T1s and a ESM, which never happened, so all the EHWIC slots are going empty. Could be running the whole place on the 5510 alone.
More reliable than USB plus a lot faster. Supermicro's own SATA DOMs have a special power connector so you can hook it up straight to the board rather than needing a line to the PSU.
PicoPSU, the actual power brick for it is underneath the shelf.
Just a dual port NIC, I needed a vlan tagged port going to another room but I don't have a managed switch small enough to put there.
