Questions about VLANs and Cisco Hardware

Does anyone have any experience with Cisco hardware, specifically WLCs, Wireless APs, and VLANs?

I took the CCNA courses, but it was a very long time ago. We didn't go over wireless technologies...

Re: Tools / technique for boards with eMMC repair?

This is normally how I read / write to them when the need arises. I check the specs to verify the voltage and just hook it to an SD slot on a PC.

I made an adapter cable that works well. I...

Re: Active Optical Cables

I'll try to explain it a little differently. I have a DC that has a rack. The rack has doors that must remain closed most of the time. I cannot open the doors and have various cables...

Re: Active Optical Cables

I need to be able to view what's coming from a video card x amount of feet away, and I need to be able to access certain devices x amount of feet away. Some (not all) of those devices are way past...

Re: CH341a SPI / IC programmer

If you're in Windows, you'll more than likely need drivers for that programmer and in Linux, you'd need the proper module(s) before you can start using it. If you tell me the OS, I can help find...

Re: Active Optical Cables

We have shielded CAT6+ cable, really good cable. Well, it's actually F/UTP (foiled / unshielded twisted pair). The F foils all the cables, and there's a drain wire. To me, I don't think there's...

Re: Active Optical Cables

Re: Active Optical Cables

There's a couple more things. For the PDUs, I don't think I'll even run the serial cables, because the CLI is very limited, but the web interface has a lot (which, from my experience, is usually...

Re: Active Optical Cables

For USB, that might be an option I didn't think of. For the DisplayPort cables, I don't think that's feasible, because of how much data is based through. Internet says 4k (3840 x 2160) @ 60Hz...

Re: Active Optical Cables

DisplayPort's max might actually be 3 meters. I'm going to be using 4k resolution, and I think that might affect how long I can run a Direct Attach Cable. I might be able to go further, but I...

Re: Active Optical Cables

Eccerr0r,

I've tried thinking of other ways and I think the AOCs will be the most cost effective solution. I am down for other ideas though. One thing for certain is I need to run certain...

Active Optical Cables

I have a situation where some long cables would come in handy (ie, DisplayPort, USB, maybe even RJ45 / USB). Because of length restrictions with these cables, I believe one of the ways to go would...

Re: Good endoscope / borescope

Is that the same type they also use on those old school pull lights? Some of the basement lights still have those Ball Chains.

Thanks!

Re: Good endoscope / borescope

Ball Chain? I will purchase some of that. And if I'm having trouble getting it through the bottom hole (which is usually about 10 feet away from the top hole), I can use a magnet.

For the...

Re: Good endoscope / borescope

That's what I've been trying to do, but because we do not know the overall length, I start where the cable ends and runs it backwards. That is why I wanted the camera do-hicky. To help me snare...

Good endoscope / borescope

Hi!

Sorry if this is the wrong sub-section. I felt because this was video related, it'd be the proper place to post.

I'm looking for a good borescope / endoscope. I want one that allows me...

Re: Wiring for voice and ethernet.

I had a bit of a mishap. A two-part pinout tester I was using to check the cables was showing pins 2 and 3 were switched. Took a while before I realized the cat 3 cable we crimped with RJ25...

Re: How the LED Keeper Works

I will try it again when we put up our christmas lights. I probably wasn't using it correctly! I have to admit, I never used it on LED lights. My father borrowed it once for his lights and I...

Re: Wiring for voice and ethernet.

I cannot edit my first post, because too much time has passed. I've added labels for the various colours.

I'm not 100% sure on the voice stuff because I've never used ethernet for voice before. ...

Wiring for voice and ethernet.

Hi!

How's this drawing look? For voice, we have a PSTN line. I took a CAT 6 patch panel (punch down style) I had laying around and daisy chained all pin 1's to pin 1's, all pin 2's to pin 2's,...

Re: How the LED Keeper Works

Yeah, I watched the video. I think the reason they didn't was to make it more universal. For example, we've noticed the LED lights from icicles might not be compatible with the LED lights from...
