With a direct connection to the Drobo, theoretically all the middle men are gone and then it becomes either Drobo or Mac. It sounds simple enough but you know how the rabbit holes go.

We suffer from slow speeds every now and then when the kids come home from college. Heavier use on the modem. It was suggested by Comcast to unplug everything (all cables) from the modem and let it "cool" for about 30 mins. Believe it or not....it does work in about 95% of the cases. Any chance that the workload on the modem has increased and is running warmer? I'm not an electronics engineer and don't really understand why, but it worked for me.

Sorry, I thought the connection test was being done between his computer and the interwebs.

Did I miss something? there's almost nothing short of a faulty piece of hardware that could cause to directly linked pieces of equipment to have slow transfer speeds (perhaps something running in the background)

What this really is is that the tech can't explain what's happening, so he's telling you to reboot the router, but wording it in such a way that you don't catch on :P There was a great diagram of tech support floating around...

Thanks Rob and Mark. I really don't seem to be having a problem with internet upload/download, or watching tutorial video, netflix, etc. When I am working on my laptop downstairs and send files to the Drobos upstairs, things get ridiculously slow. What component of my LAN would affect that? Doesn't matter if I'm using wifi or CAT5, it takes forever all of a sudden.


Well, your router is definitely in the mix for both LAN and WAN access. It's the device that determines where your packets need to go (out to the Internet or to a LAN based device like your Drobo. With a 14 year old router, you're definitely not going to have the fastest capabilities (wired Gb or Wireless N). So yeah, I would replace your router and if you use separate wireless points of presence, that as well. I have a personal dislike of Linksys gear and use Netgear devices.

Assuming everything is new and up to date, wired transfers should be faster than wireless but for most applications it shouldn't be a problem either way.

Oh, and one other thing, Jim, you might want to replace the switch with a new Gigabit version.

Per the earlier talk about Phantoms. The very last drone-worthy one will leave AMARG shortly...

So other than the Collings plane, how many are still flying this side of the pond? I think Germany still flies them but not for much longer if memory serves.

Since we are now an IT group too ....one thing that I always look at when having network problems with a mix of devices, wired PCs and WiFi PCs is IP address conflicts. Conflicts can wreak havoc with throughput due to collisions and re-transmits.

I spent the afternoon with quite a few of the men from my church, trying to knock small disc-shaped bits of clay out of the air. I went 12/15 during the 3 scoring rounds, but have got a ways to go before I'm ready to take my show on the road.

The anticipated result



Retrieving the lucky ones



Fun in the twilight


After enjoying the smell of cordite and consuming plenty of grilled oinkers and cluckers, I found a fence-post and fired off a couple of shots of the post-sunset sky.





It was a wonderfully relaxing afternoon/evening.

+1 .. and keep an eye open for having two or more DHPC servers with overlapping client addresses....

Back to an aviation related topic, Calgary based Arctic charter/rescue service Ken Borek Air had a tragedy last week. Losing a Twin Otter and 3 crew in the Queen Alexandra Mountain Range in Antartica while enroute from the South Pole to Terra Nova Bay. Having flown in and out of the Arctic and Antarctic for 30 years all on board knew the risks, and were properly equipped. Initial overviews of the crash sight appear to indicate that a turn over the mountain range was made to early and resulted in a direct impact into the side of Mount Elizabeth near the summit (14'000ft)

RIP to the pilot and crew.

I use an iPhone app called Fing to keep an eye on my house network. I just looked at it and I've got 25 active devices at the moment... Jeeze....

Thought some of you might get a kick out of this. My father (William Turchick) sent me a set of 8x10 prints so I scanned and put them together with info he supplied.

Thanks guys. I'm enjoying getting my son started in shooting and hunting. It is reviving the fire in me to spend more time enjoying nature with family.
