Now that the house is starting to become more finished every day I thought I would show everyone what kind of “backbone” equipment I will be using, a 10 Gigabit backbone! Continue reading Home Networking: Mikrotik 10 Gbps backbone
Although not much of an IT update, I did a new walk-through over the build site of the new house! Continue reading Home Networking: Second walkthrough
Browsing the interwebs and having found the 99 cent mouse in the previous post I looked further and found a Mechanical Backlit keyboard for about 40 dollars! And from what I could find, it might actually be the real deal. So I ordered one and it arrived this week. Let’s take a look shall we. Continue reading True Mechanical keyboard for 40$
Well that title is very clear. This article links to my video I made about computer cleaning! Continue reading Clean your computer or it might EXPLODE!
I did a forum post about this a few years ago but I thought it was time to do a video and an actual blog post about my proposed solution for the new house to transport HDMI Video and Audio using Ethernet cabling! Continue reading Home Networking: HDMI extender over Ethernet
As some might know, we’ve been building a house for a while now. We’re now into it about 1 year and I thought it would be nice to show a video of how things are progressing and also showcase some of the “features” that are going into the house.
So, introducing the Home Networking series 1st post and video! The home networking series will be my journey starting from scratch, creating the plans, having the house built and installing everything to try and create the ultimate home setup. I’ll take you with me, share the good and the bad and hopefully some some fun going along! Continue reading Home Networking: First walk through on the build site
This week Mikrotik released the Routerboard wAP AC. Internally it resembles the recently released hAP AC a lot so I bought some to take a look!
A while back I tested a “dumb” active POE switch. But I still have devices which require passive POE and I don’t want a mess of cables and injectors. So I took a closer look at passive PE and what is possible with it. For this I tested some devices and you can view my review below.
Routerboard / Mikrotik just released a new product called the hAP AC. It’s the first product they have ever released featuring a 3×3 2.4Ghz and 3×3 5.0Ghz AC radio’s, 5 Gigabit ports, Passive POE (11v-57v) in and out and a SFP + USB port! I thought it would be worthwhile to run some tests on it and to share it with everyone.

Over the last few years I’ve been gathering more and more equipment which supports Power over Ethernet such a access-points and the IP camera’s I’ve written about before.
I need something to power those POE devices! Most managable POE switches are quite expensive so I’ve been looking around for cheaper options and decided to order a “dumb” POE+ switch from China to test!
