    Dual NIC setup on your Blue Iris Machine

    Sure it's possible. This is why many enterprises use multiple vendors and multiple layers of security. Also, Windows is more complex than a managed switch. There are so many apps that you can run on Windows. Surely Windows has more potential vulnerabilities. Just check the CVE database. There...

    Dual NIC setup on your Blue Iris Machine

    This is certainly possible. There could be a Windows vulnerability we won't know about. If this vulnerability is known by a Govt sponsored cyber organization, they could potentially share that vulnerability with a camera manufacturer (that is heavily controlled or influenced by said Govt). An...

    PoE Switch Suggestion List

    The 3560 is a layer 3 switch, which means it can do dynamic routing. For example, it will run routing protocols like OSPF, RIP, EIGRP. The 3560 can do everything the 2960 can do and more. The 2960 is a layer 2 switch. Most consumer switches fall in the layer 2 only category. You may be to do...

    Those are reported rates by the client. I did not run any iperf tests. I do testing of certain solutions at home so local WiFi speeds are important to me. Even if I connect at >1G, my max is 1G because I'm connected to the switch via 1000BaseT. In hindsight, I should have opted for the AP 6 LR...

    Some quick feedback regarding the Unifi AP 6 Lite. I bought a pair of these thinking to upgrade my two Cisco 3702i. Works decent for WiFi 6 (802.11ax). Speed is faster than WiFi 5 (802.11ac) for most devices like smartphones and laptops. However the WiFi 5 support (which most clients use) on AP...

    The AP 6 Lite came back in stock and just ordered a couple. Thanks all.

    Looks like the AP 6 Lite also supports VLANs (which is what I currently use with my Ciscos). That put me over the fence but as I was about to place the order, it looks like it's sold out. Guess I have to wait a couple of weeks.

    Perfect, that's what I want. When I think of a WiFi controller, I think of Cisco/Aruba which has a true controller. The Unifi controller sounds more like a "configuration tool" - which is perfect.

    I should have clarified further in my original post. My use case is for a temporary ad-hoc network that is not necessarily connected the Internet. My current setup is a Cisco 3702i AP (running in autonomous mode) with Cisco 3560cx compact switch. I'd like to replace this with a single 802.11ax...

    It's fine if it's a router. Which one though? Lots out there from netgear, zyxel, asus, tplink, etc.

    Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately I don't see multiple Ethernet ports on these. I need it to have a mini-switch built-in. I know my Cisco 3702i doesn't have multiple Ethernet ports, but I need them on this new AP because where I will be using this has a requirement to plug in a couple...

    Recommend a wifi6 access point

    Hello, I'm looking to buy a WiFi6 AP to upgrade from my old Cisco 3702i AP (which only supports 802.11ac wave1). Primarily to use as an AP to bridge to my LAN. I don't need routing/NATing, but if it has it, that's fine. I need about 4 Ethernet ports. I have not kept up with the latest tech...
