Yeah, I remember that 100% fan thing from a decade ago. It was pretty hilar back then as a non-Mac-PC user.
This is the first I've heard of an embedded whitelist, however. I had always heard that it was the presence of a thermal sensor that made the difference.
I downloaded an app called Macs...
I posted this earlier today on the MacRumors forum.
This morning I followed OWC's tutorial video and installed an old Samsung EVO850 SATA 500GB SSD into a mid-2011 27" iMac i5.
I used a generic Chinese SATA cable from eBay, with no in-line or other kind of thermal sensor because I was led...
Is this legit?
As in, is it compiled by a well-meaning individual without malicious intent?
At first glance it passes my BS filters but I thought I'd get a differential diagnosis.
Thanks for the offer, Clocker.
We ended up going with a product from a newer company called Mercku. It's been several months and so far I'm rather displeased. It's not particularly speedy, nodes disappear and gaming lag is pretty terrible. It also suffers from what feels like bufferbloat and...
1) Yes, but cable is replacing ADSL, which should be gone by month's end.
2.2) I don't know what the subnet mask is.
3) Yes. DHCP range is 192.168.127.100–199.
5) Yes. DHCP range is 192.168.1.11–31 (although once DSL goes away the Archer C7 will be...

I've been hounding my ISP for admin...
Hmmm... It could be a /16.
The sticker on the back doesn't specify. I don't have management access to the modem and the guest overview doesn't provide that information.
Is there any other way of finding out?
Aside from one old iMac (and some recreational VM-ing on my part) this is a Windows 10 household.
Tracert shows a single hop to modem; predictably, through the Mercku (for which my dislike is increasing what with its instability and snowflake temperament).
The modem doesn't show up in the ARP...
We're switching from DSL to Cable.
Until I wire everything in I plugged a Mercku mesh router directly into the cable modem, as you can see in the diagram.
The modem's LAN IP is fixed at 192.168.100.1 (even though we purchased the modem we don't get management access :mad:).
The Mercku router is...
