    Networked Windows machine instead of Parallels 17

    Did a test run of it with RDP on an old Thinkpad i5 system with 8gb and 128gb SSD. So far, its faster than if I were running it on the MBP under Parallels ARM -> x64 emulation. Success! I dont make large, complex models so I think RDP with gigabit should be sufficient for my needs. Just hobby...

    Networked Windows machine instead of Parallels 17

    I currently have Autodesk Inventor running on Win11 inside Parallels 17 on my M1 MBP. It works, but it isn’t fast. So I’m curious about running a networked Windows machine instead of using Parallels. What would be the best approach to putting a Windows machine hooked up to my gigabit home...

    Ender5 pro bl touch

    Did you update the firmware after installing BL Touch? I really liked it when I had it on my Ender 3. Super PINDA on Prusa is even better, but the BL Touch made life easier in my experience. I hated tinkering, I just wanted to print, BL Touch sped that up once installed.

    Ender5 pro bl touch

    I had an Ender3, not a 5. If I recall, at least on the board I had, there were two different ways to set it up. Either replace the Z stop switch with the BL touch wiring, or plug it into the ABL port on the board. Not sure the specifics on your board, but thats how mine was. It was the...

    How to connect 5 devices to VCC on Arduino for 3D printed mouse?

    I went with your suggestion. I attached two red wires to VCC on the Pro Micro board, and one wire went to the OLED + rotary encoder, and the second red wire went to the RGB strip and joystick sensor. That way the amps were kept lower.

    How to connect 5 devices to VCC on Arduino for 3D printed mouse?

    I'm in the process of assembling an Orbion Space Mouse, https://github.com/FaqT0tum/Orbion_3D_Space_Mouse I'm a newbie to electronics. The OLED, rotary encoder, 3x rear switches, neopixel, and joystick all connect to the single VCC wire. How would you go about connecting all of these devices...

    Preorder Prusa XL

    Glad you're getting it figured out! I have a Prusa Mini+ and a MK3S+. I ditched my Chinese printers, they made good results, but I was tired of tinkering and calibrating. The real strength of Prusa is their custom slicer and their firmware work so dang well together that it makes 3D printing an...

    Post Your Mac Setup!

    The previous monitor gave me wicked headaches and eye strain, never could figure out why. Originally went back to my 2x 27" Apple Thunderbolt Displays, and just today replaced it with this LG 34" USB-C curved monitor, love it, its even better than having 2 Thunderbolt Displays. The Thunderbolt...

    Notebook Review and Forums closing 1/31/2022

    Oh man, thats a shame. I heavily relied on that website when in college and grad school, since I used a laptop back then instead of a desktop. Their reviews and guides were very helpful in finding the best value machine that fit my requirements. As some of you have already noted, their forums...

    Really newbie question, when my AT&T router is unplugged, whole home network goes down

    Right now its just: AT&G fiber optic RG -> cheap Netgear switch from Best Buy -> Unifi AP LR and other hardwire ports to stuff like Xbox/desktop PCs. UAP-LR is WiFi to tablets/phones/Ring doorbell/3D printer Octoprint RPi/etc.

    Really newbie question, when my AT&T router is unplugged, whole home network goes down

    The AP won’t be running the DHCP, the Ubiquiti controller box that is running the Unifi software would be

    AirPort Extreme

    Yuck. I'm an Apple person and ditched AP years ago. They haven't kept up. I'm running Ubiquiti for my home network now. With that being said, you're right. For some reason people still buy them.

    Really newbie question, when my AT&T router is unplugged, whole home network goes down

    Think I got it figured out with a little bit of Google'ing. I need to set the AT&T box into "IP Passthrough" mode, it uses subnet 192.168.1.0/24. Then set the UniFi controller up as the DHCP server, subnet 192.168.2.0/24 so there aren't any conflicts. Does this sound right?

    Really newbie question, when my AT&T router is unplugged, whole home network goes down

    Would it be better to set up a second LAN using the managed switch? The AT&T router provides 192.168.0.1 -> 192.168.0.255. Should I use the switch to provide 192.168.1.1 -> 192.168.1.255, for all the devices in my house? And connect the router to the switch to provide internet services only...

    Really newbie question, when my AT&T router is unplugged, whole home network goes down

    Ah, thats probably it. I have a new managed switch coming this week that should be able to handle DHCP. I only want the AT&T gear bringing internet into the house, nothing else. I'm very new to advanced home networking and I'm learning as I go this week.
