some generic Trendnet router running botnet

>Do you live in a Wifi Jungle? How do you cope?
my apartment complex only has comcast, so everyone just has the stock comcast router/modem gateways. For some reason they only allow channel 6 or 11 so there are 10+ networks on either of those channels. Wireless runs ok on channel 8, but if I'm not close to the transmitter I need to use ethernet.

Is there a way to get NIC teaming to actually use the full bandwidth without having to have multiple endpoints on each end of the link?
I'm trying to get 2xGbE on a Windows machine to link with 2xGbE on a Linux machine but I can only seem to get 1 Gb of bandwidth between the two. I think the Windows/Intel one won't split the same connection over both NICs but that's what I want it to do.

Can someone explain subnetting in a practical setting? Please explain what a "host" and "subnet" is in a real world situation instead of "Oh if you barrow bits from the host position you can use those bits to increase the effective number of subnets".

I get the math behind it. I just have no fucking clue what doing that actually accomplishes.

Learning about networking is much different than learning programming or most other computer science topics; there's more focus on facts than theory, especially at the intro level. It's more like studying biology than calculus.

Forgot to mention, firebox is running OpenWRT, desktop Win7, storage server Debian (serves SMB and iSCSI), and way too many VMs.

>>
>>46827445
basically a subnet is the first part of the IP range is the network name and the 2nd part is the hostname

So 10.2.11.3/24
so 10.2.11 is the network name and .3 is hostname

IP address is maximum 255.255.255.255 which is translated from binary which is read as 11111111.11111111.11111111.11111111

the /24 part tells you when to separate from network name to hostname, if you count the first 24 ones correspond with the first 3 255s.

Why did they keep calling the cops on you?
>>
>>46827445

IPv4 can have as many hosts on a single network as the subnet mask allows it to.

Host is a piece of equipment that has an unique IP address in a subnet.

Subnet is a part of whole IP network, subnets can be interconnected in third layer of OSI with routing protocols.

1500 fixed endpoints and about another half of that as a wireless client. Network gear is Cisco (running IOS), very few donated Juniper stuff, APs are made by Aruba (running Aruba's OS).

2. Someone around me already has Surveillance Van, so I went with Pretty_Fly_for_a_WiFi
3. I have three routers dispersed throughout the house in cascade, an old non-wireless Linksys I use as a splitter, a wireless Linksys that refuses to die, and a main 8-port non-wireless right next to my Modem.
4. Nope.
Also my house was built before internet, so Ive had to ran all the cable myself. Which is immaculate, though, unlabeled.
I would feel bad for someone who got the house in the future, because the schematic for this spaghetti is only in my head...

>>46827579
Which ideally should be the goal of teaming in the first place.
I really don't get why it's so hard to just have a system where it sends packet 1 over NIC 1, packet 2 over NIC 2, then repeats so you actually get double the bandwidth.

>This mode is the only mode that will permit a single TCP/IP connection to stripe traffic across multiple interfaces. It is therefore the only mode that will allow a single TCP/IP stream to utilize more than one interface's worth of throughput. This comes at a cost, however: the striping often results in peer systems receiving packets out of order, causing TCP/IP's congestion control system to kick in, often by retransmitting segments.

>>46827606
You can take the same idea and just solve it at the application layer, opening multiple packets and splitting up the payload, then reorganizing fragments. You'll have metadata taking up additional overhead though.

Your ethernet bond won't split up single flows but it should hash out your sockets across NICs evenly depending on hashing policy. Think if you use balance-rr it should be pretty even. Not entirely sure, as I haven't done this myself.

Wonder what the real problem with frame ordering is though. Might fuck up UDP datagrams but TCP payloads should be fine.

External attacks targeting your external IP will hit the router. If it's targeting a Windows vulnerability it's useless. Having your desktop directly exposed leaves Windows vulnerabilities open to external attacks. In this sense, it serves a similar purpose to an actual firewall.

NAT is about as secure as a screen door on your house. It does nothing to prevent outbound traffic and only inhibits inbound traffic because it doesn't know where to send it. If you set up port forwarding and/or DMZ, it simply forwards it without question.

That's something I despise about home routers: the "DMZ" feature they have (forward all inbound traffic that doesn't match another rule to a designated host) has nothing to do with an actual DMZ (separate network with the machines that handle incoming connections).

Is "no it doesn't" a valid response to this?

No, it is not. "No it can't" would be used to negate the first clause, and "no it's not" would be used to negate the latter clause.

>I'm just wondering why more teaming implementations *don't* do that.
"No they don't"

>Can the Windows iSCSI initiator be configured to use multiple connections?

You take a swtich that supports vlan and create your vlans.
fx.
vlan 9 = wan

Create a trunk and allow vlan 9 or all and plug esxi into that port.
Plug the wan facing cable into the port asigned to vlan 9.


Connect to esxi and allow all vlans to the pfsense vm.

Open pfsense and add vlan 9 to your only interface and name it wan, change it to dhcp and you should get an ip.

>inb4 nice fedora hurr

Router is a shuttle running CentOS 6 and VLANs.

Wireless bridging is with a Cisco Aironet 1602e for my dense wifi jungle (very, very crowded).

External antennas help improve signal
1602e is dual-band and dual-radio, 5GHz gives more elbow room for the devices that support it
Wiring throughout the home and PoE allow ideal placement of the AP, as well as separating router and AP roles

Also IPv6 FTW, makes remote access easier if you have a somewhat larger network.

That's only because it's mostly fiber and I ran it. Give the workstation faggots 10 minutes and they'll fuck up the copper runs.

>wifi jungle?
Oh yes, I live in a wifi jungle, I'm in range for every AP in three apartment buildings full of small apartments. I cope by not really using wifi for anything important, which reuired running ethernet cable along the baseboards between my office and cable modem, going up and around the frame of my bathroom door.

Someone just gifted me a rasberry pi kit so I've been looking for some cool projects to do.

There's some neat ones out there but I had an idea to do a remote webcam of a nearby mountain's summit, taken at elevation. I figure my setup would be:

>Pi
>Power Supply
>Solar Panel
>Camera
>Digital thermometer
>Weather/animal-proof casing

I should be able to figure all of that out but the one thing that has me wondering is how to transmit the picture. Should I just get the cheapest 3G hotspot I can find? There wouldn't be much bandwidth needed, I'd think I'd have it turn on every 15 minutes, take a picture, compress it, read the temperature and then send that info to a linux server I have running.

Also open to suggestions on a solar panel, thermometer or cheap camera as I haven't bought any of this stuff yet.

Should I go with a separate modem/router or a two-in-one solution for my home network, and which models do you recommend?

I need 5 Ghz, dual band, gigabit ethernet and external antennas. Budget around 150 usd.

it's just our family's last name since I never cared to make up something clever
>What kind of router do you have? Does it run DD-WRT, Tomato, Open-WRT, or proprietary botnet software?
pfsense main switch/router/firewall/vpn and a few routers with dd-wrt
>Do you live in a Wifi Jungle? How do you cope?
I live on the top of a hill so I can broadcast at whateverthefuck I want and not have to worry about channels and such

Hello Apprentice Sysadmin, I see you.
How long have you been running your network for? How long did it take you to get there?
How much did it cost you?

>home wifi, tiny ethernet setups

I work as a network engineer. After working with Cisco for a long time, I recently started working with Juniper. Holy shit, Junos is just heavenly to work with. Also their price/performance ratio blows Cisco out of the fucking water.
>>
probably 5-10 real devices

it's 3 letters

dual core atom processor box with 4GB RAM, installed pfSense, older router that ran dd-wrt only functions as a wireless ap now

no, we don't even have neighbors
>>
>>46830908
Your experience is similar to mine. After seeing Junos, IOS looks ancient and crappy.

Cisco's IOS is like the Windows of the networking world. Everyone tolerates it only because it has existed so long that everyone knows it. But no one really likes it.

>How many devices do you have on your network? Wired or wireless?
1 wired client
1 ubuntu server
3 wireless clients
1 AP
1 4G modem
1 router

>How autistic and/or racist is your wireless network's SSID?
not at all, it's Mikrotik

>What kind of router do you have? Does it run DD-WRT, Tomato, Open-WRT, or proprietary botnet software?
Mikrotik RB750GL running routerOS, thing is a beast for it's size.
AP is Asus RT-56u, pretty good but Mikrotik has 1 Watt Tx and Rx radio which is illegal to have in my country.

>Do you live in a Wifi Jungle? How do you cope?
No, only two wifi devices.

>why subnet
broadcast traffic

if you have more than ~50-250 hosts on a subnet you'll start to get prohibitive amounts of broadcast traffic choking your whole network

>Devices
4 wired, 2 wireless.

>SSID
It's pretty autistic.
"Astronomican"
Secured with WPA2-Enterprise (PEAPv1/EAP-GTC)

>Router
ASUS RT-N16 running OpenWRT. Rock solid stable.

>Wifi jungle?
It's an apartment building, so yes. I keep my TX power low so it doesn't seep through the walls.
>>
>>46827144
>How many devices do you have on your network? Wired or wireless?
Both. Six of my devices, unknown number of other people's.

>How autistic and/or racist is your wireless network's SSID?
"Open WiFi! Peace, Love, Internet"

>What kind of router do you have? Does it run DD-WRT, Tomato, Open-WRT, or proprietary botnet software?
Proprietary. I bought the router because it was OpenWRT compatible, but the factory firmware was surprisingly good.

>Do you live in a Wifi Jungle? How do you cope?
Crowded but fine. The worst part is that all my 2.4ghz devices go on the fritz when the neighbors use their microwave or whatever jamming device they fire up for minutes at a time while I'm gaming.

Nice trips.

>How many devices do you have on your network? Wired or wireless?
I've got two wired desktops, a wired laptop that I installed Linux on and use as a file server (currently off), a wireless laptop, and two (soon to be three) wireless phones. Assuming my family doesn't have visitors, then it varies according to who needs to access their Facebooks. Also a wired network printer (Epson K301, aftermarket tanks and ink).

>How autistic and/or racist is your wireless network's SSID?
I named it the classic "4Chan Party Van". My parents don't mind at all. Hell my dad lurks himself. All in all, pretty fucking autistic, not racist though. Not that most people here can even read it, spic country.

>What kind of router do you have? Does it run DD-WRT, Tomato, Open-WRT, or proprietary botnet software?
I have an ADSL modem/router combo with 100mbps ports. No custom firmware for anything ADSL. I have about 30m of cable going to a gigabit switch, where everything wired is connected

>Do you live in a Wifi Jungle? How do you cope?
Nope. There's my SSID and two others. I'm sorrounded by old people who don't even have computers, and niggers who just leech off the shitty, insecure, eternally congested public WiFi of the nearby plaza with their government-gifted netbooks.
