Two dual Intel NICs 10/100 for $16.


Recommended Posts

This has been a long running offer from an Untangle employee and they still have some left. I've ordered 3 times without a hitch for some builds for family/friends. I just ordered 2 more for my VMware vSphere box I'm playing with and also to have a spare for my Untangle box.


Only downside is that they are older cards and PCI only but they have all been rock solid for me. Just thought I'd post it here for those who may be interested in a Pfsense or Untangle build who want a low cost dual Intel NIC. :)

      Okay, so I'll be moving in about a month to a different home and I'm trying to gather the necessary materials to set up a relatively extensive mixed home network.  In order to simply get off the ground and get started, I've chosen the following pieces of equipment:
      Modem:  Our area is served by Spectrum and here's the list of the approved modems.  Any suggestions on one of these? Router: Cisco RV320 Firewall Device: Do you recommend hardware here or use the router's software firewall? Switch: Cisco SG200 Access Point: Cisco Aironet 3602I Controller: Cisco 2504  
      So, I'm a complete novice when it comes to building a mixed home network that will eventually entail a server room, NAS, etc.  However, I do know that I want all Gigabit equipment and the switch I chose is ginormous simply because I want the overhead to add connections later (IOW, I don't mind that it's overkill).  Also, again just because I can, I'm looking to get primarily enterprise quality equipment.  I'm not looking to burn money just to burn money, but I'm also not afraid to spend a little for a more quality network and something to learn on.
      If I'm thinking correctly, I'll connect into the modem , then to the router, then to the firewall (if necessary), then to the switch, then have the controller in one of the switch ports and the POE AP in one of the POE ports on the switch.  This, then, should give me both wired (by plugging Cat6a into the switch for other devices) and wireless access (via the AP), correct?  Am I forgetting/missing something?
      Really appreciate you entertaining this novice as I try to learn/build this network.  You can see my ultimate goals here (Lofty, I know).

      I have old WHS v.1 20-bay movie server.
      Few years ago I bought QNAP TS-415+ with 4Tb drives setup in RAID5.
      I really like PLEX on QNAP and started moving/transcoding my movies from WHS to QNAP.
      Well, my 4-bay QNAP is full. 
      I need to get a larger one.
      I'm looking at 8-bay ones and just don't think it'll be large enough once I start getting more BD movies, and especially once 4K movies start moving into my home (probably 1-2 years away).
      8-Bay units setup in RAID6 with the largest 12TB drives will be limited to 72TB. I have immediate use for about 30TB -- that's 42% of maximum 8 bay capacity. 
      I don't really need much processing power, but am afraid to run out of space again.
      Also, I don't want to get a power hungry monster (like my 20-bay WHS was) because I want to keep running it 24/7 and electricity was in the order of $28-40 per month.
      I like QNAP. I would like to get another one but looking at prices of $3,500-$6,000 for 16-bay unit just seems high -- really high.
      Is QNAP overpriced, or are the components just that good/pricey for what I get. 
      Again, I don't need much processing power (no need for VMs, CPU heavy tasks beyond PLEX transcoding), just large space (80+TB).
      What have you or would you do?
      P.S. I would prefer Intel CPU if at all possible.

      I have been looking at Synology for a great NAS and happened to stumble across this......https://www.synology.com/en-global/products/RT2600ac
      Does anyone know how this works?

      I’m setting up my small office network and on my server I will use the “Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials” and I will want to enable and use the “Anywhere Access” and “VPN” build in features to have remote access to my server from outside.
      Regarding this, my router uses as factory default the port 80 to access the admin interface. 
      But I think I should change this in order for my router not to be visible from outside world, and also not to conflict with any of the Windows Server services, correct? It’s a best practice to do this correct?
      If yes, I really don’t know which port I should use. I’m think on using port 8080 so the router access from inside my network will become:
      So can anyone please share your advice on which port I should use for my router admin interface access?
      It must be a port that can only have access from my internal network and it must be a port not used by common services in order not to create conflicts.
