  1. I leave auto update on for everything that supports it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I don’t think it’s that different here. I installed my stuff all myself. We all have the same internet. I don’t know who I’d call (other than a friend) if I needed network advice. Maybe ask the guy who manages the network at your office he wants a side job? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I don’t see how the WAP could cause the hard wired network to go down. Then again, I’m not a network guy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I would say what you’re doing is the INCORRECT thing to do, because it doesn’t work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. One thing I did do is I have all my devices setup with DHCP reservations. I don’t know if that contributes to my stability or not, but it really is rock solid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Perfect. I just ordered one. I want to be able to more easily use the mobile phone apps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’m no Network Engineer...I just used Google. I set the VLAN(s) up in the UI for UniFi and then tagged a couple of ports on my switches. I agree the UniFi controller deal is a pain in the ass. I need to buy a cloud key as well, but I think I may need their USG in order to do so...I need to research it further. I’ve moved with my setup and kept pretty much all of it in tact. Why did you throw it all out? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I don’t have a “C4 monitored network solution”. I run a PFSense firewall, two Luxul switches (one PoE, one not), and 3 UniFi AP’s (two are LR, one is not). I’ve got a fair amount of stuff going on, including HDMI over IP matrix distribution. Everything is controlled via Serial or IP. I haven’t read through the thread to find the diagram Cy posted, but I will. I have 4 kids + my wife and there are always tons of friends here. I put the kids on one VLAN/SSID, I put guests on one (secured via Captive Portal with a 6 hour shelf life) and everything else on the main network. I did the guests this way so I could easily give them a simple password but not worry about them being able to access devices on my network. I set the kids up on their own so I could have more strict firewall rules in place. It’s rock solid and has been for many years. If it wasn’t, it would most certainly be my fault.

  9. Who’s fault is it then? In all seriousness, what equipment are you running and how is it setup? I can’t imagine why networking would be any different in Australia than it is in the US. I’ve not had problems for a long time, but when I did was running crappy consumer grade hardware. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wap, you mentioned a bunch of guests coming over and spilling past your DHCP limits. One thing I’ve done to help mitigate this (and other problems that could arise) is to create a guest network which runs on a separate VLAN. I carefully which devices on my main network can communicate with the guest VLAN so they can still airplay and what not, but can’t access my NAS (for example). I have the network unsecured but them make folks authenticate via Captive Portal and it expires after 6 hours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Aside from initial setup I haven’t either. All my stuff is IP or RS232. Remotes are in a box in the storage room downstairs. It would probably take me a bit to find as they simply don’t get used. Ever. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. OSX app stalls on open...

    It’s Hollywood man...they ruined it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. New Control4 Controller, C4-CA1

    Man this forum has a crazy dynamic. It’s like there’s so much angst and everyone is so quick to get angry or argumentative. Maybe wappinghigh has put everyone on eternal edge? LOL Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Right...until you don’t. Which doesn’t take long. It would be a frustrating nightmare. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Can you imagine the frustration that onboard IR would bring? Remember, when you select the Blu-ray player you have to make sure the remote is pointing over here. Oh crap, it wasn’t and now everything required to watch a Blu-ray is on BUT the Blu-ray player. Then everything is forever out of whack. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
