    Fan Noise After Adding SSD To Mid-2011 27" iMac

    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...

    Fan Noise After Adding SSD To Mid-2011 27" iMac

    For the record, my intention is to use the SSD for the OS and apps, while retaining the HDD for storage / fan noise mitigation.

    Fan Noise After Adding SSD To Mid-2011 27" iMac

    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...

    MediCat Live USB

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/medicat-usb-a-multiboot-linux-usb-for-pc-repair.361577/ 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.

    Right! Wow, that feel like forever ago.

    Home Mesh Network With OpenWrt?

    CounterStrike! Wow, that takes me back. Funnily enough the only game I still play is Team Fortress 2, which was another Half-Life Source spawn.

    Home Mesh Network With OpenWrt?

    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...

    Routing Between Subnets

    Yes, that seems to be the case.

    Routing Between Subnets

    Clarification: 1) Yes, but cable is replacing ADSL, which should be gone by month's end. 2.0) Yes 2.1) Yes 2.2) I don't know what the subnet mask is. 3) Yes. DHCP range is 192.168.127.100–199. 4) Yes. 5) Yes. DHCP range is 192.168.1.11–31 (although once DSL goes away the Archer C7 will be...

    Routing Between Subnets

    I mean that password access to the modem has (apparently) been disabled by (presumably) Rogers Cable, and thus the management console is unavailable. Accessing the modem at its LAN IP address presents a password-less guest overview page of little utility. I've been hounding my ISP for admin...

    Routing Between Subnets

    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?

    Routing Between Subnets

    Mercku Replied: Is that right? Wouldn't I still need to manually give a computer a 192.168.100.x IP in the correct subnet in order to access the modem?

    Routing Between Subnets

    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...

    Routing Between Subnets

    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...

    Lubuntu No Bootu

    As it turns out, friend-of-friend either gave up on the laptop or disappeared back to Paris so situation over.
