  1. by adding one more AP i mean connect it to a router/switch by CAT 5e/6 cable, so AP won't work as repeater on single radio. and BTW Mikrotik has also centralized management called CAPsMan - you simply choose which device would be central manager and connect all other AP to this.
  2. i agree with you, but it all depends - i have a flat with three rooms and in this case all in one router like i mentioned before Mikrotik Hap AC2 works very well. But when you live in house with two floors then separate router like https://mikrotik.com/product/hex_s and several AP is a way to go. and you can always add one more AP, other than buy one super duper Wifi device..
  3. i have no experience with ASUS or NETGEAR equipment, and yes, RouterOS are all the same for all hardware - it just depends on hardware which processes you can offload on hardware, and which ones are done by CPU. RouterOS is very rich on features on routing switching side. if you would like to try ROS, yes they have and CHR images - see here: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:CHR and it have 60 day trial version with unlimited speed interfaces. according to configuration - ROS have builtin web interface, but more recommended is their Winbox tool - can run it on Linux too.
  4. according to write protection - see here, if that's your case: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1008115 or try another google
  5. i think your command is ok, never used such RDM disks on windows. and yes, no smart info, no spindown. in one of my unraid servers, i simply create small datastore on ESXI side(physically on SSD), and attach this disk to unraid, and use it as unussigned disk for Docker image. but you can use that way for cache drive too.. if an SSD have good built-in garbage collection, then i see no problems with such approach until you are using your server very heavy with lot on downloads on cache. in such case SSD will exhaust very fast..
  6. you can use esxi RDM to connect hdd connected to mobo port to unRAID. i'm using this way my cache drive without any issues for years.. search a forum, there are several guildes how to do it. one search result from me:
  7. then i would recommend a Mikrotik products, like https://mikrotik.com/product/hap_ac2, much cheaper than your budget. it can do about 1Gbit WAN, have at least 200Mbit Hardware accelerated Ipsec VPN, some wifi - for me i have a cable on all devices that required more than 50Mbit traffic, so not a big deal.. and if you are familiar with Mikrotik ROS, you have so many configuration options..
  8. what are expected total bandwidth? do you need some hardware supported VPN?
  9. if you have an interest, i got it working. some manual work needed, but it just works then.. yes, it looks interesting, but lacks of 2FA authentication, if you wanna make it accessible public. just let me know, i can publish docker settings.
  10. condensed view is working again noticed on different forum..
  11. try re seating all sticks, if that not work, then try identify faulty ones and simply not use them. i would go for larger sticks, 8Gb stick costs about 15EUR, 16GB stick about 25EUR on ebay. see your Mobo manual, i often see that with all RAM Stick populated they work for slower speed. you can go for 4x16GB sticks - 2 per cpu.
  12. if model are the same, it should work.. according to your pic from BIOS - why only 20GB of RAM? one stick missing?
  13. did you tried both cpu's with only one RAM stick with each CPU? and remove all other connected equipment, like PCIe cards, HDDs, .. something weird is going on..
  14. unraid is not about a speed. with parity enabled array even with turbowrite speeds are not near lowest drive speed. i'm using slower drives - less heat, less cooling needed.
  15. for just a test use a single one. 800W is plenty..
