  1. im getting ready to set up a cluster i bought 3 gigabit nics i was thinking of uzing clustermosix on the slim terminals and then boot from network , i have over 40 computers so i dont think the 3 gigabits are goona go far i was thinking about putting multiple nics in them to get more bandwith if i have all p3's around 700-800 mhz do i need more than 100mb/s to get the full resources of the nodes ? thanks in advance for any help ps i will be runing through baystack 350-24t switches on the nodes that dont have the gigabits on the others ill just run crossovers from one puter to the next then uplink it to the switch ... if gigabit is overkill please let me know
  2. well im not making ANY money from these sites so im not trying to spend any money on them either .... anyway thanks for your help you said i could still ask you for help in making the win2003 box a router well im asking ! one more ? why wouldnt the linux box be a better router ? im not worried about easy to use im worried about performace ! i want my money for nothing and my chicks for free could you explain the process of setting up a server in win2003 and linux in a nutshell i dont need any baby talk just tell me the overall process and ill figure it out -thanks
  3. ok buddy first of all ... thanks for replying !! i appreciate it ... i didnt even know there were hacks for the frimware ... i had always heard of people using linux boxes as routers but i have no idea why im kinda new to the linux world but i love it ... Q;1 anyway i went to go this "sveasoft hack" but i dont think itz for my router i have a BEFW11S4 so i dont know if this kind of software exist for it if it does can you please tell me what it is called or where to get it ? Q:2 and if not maybe i could bypass the router and use the linux box as the router could i do that since im hosting the webpages on it ? how secure would it be and would i be able to rout all the upload bandwidth to the linux box ? ill find tutorials or if you wanna shoot some my way ? or should i use the win2003 box ? Q:3 maybe im really old but i remember alot of people talking about "uncapping" your cable modem to make the upstream just as fast as the downstream ? by doing hardware modifications is this like obsolete ? last question could you tell me if it takes a long time for my page to load ? www.zonemikel.com i tried it from the college down the street it was like 30 seconds ... as for theplanet OUCH thatz expencive ... im trying to run it out of my home for a while to learn how to and because itz cheap but if i get alot of users on one of my sites or any income i hope to upgrade to a different connection with more upstream ! thanks in advance !
  4. hey guys im currently hosting 3 sites i dont know if i can list them here so you can see how slow they load if i cant im very sorry and im not trying to spam !! but look at this one www.zonemikel.com now im very confused about my upload speed which machine should i test it from ? ill give you a layout of my setup [glow=red,2,300]cable modem[/glow] [glow=red,2,300]linksys router (wireless +4 rj45's)[/glow] from the router **** there is also a cable to a 10mbs at&t hub that shoots out to one house with another hub and one computer then to another house with one hub and 2 computers (sharing with neighbors !!)****** also i have two systems plugged in to the router 1. linux (fedora core3)|webserver| hosting 3 sites with little trafic maybe 1000 hits a month or less im not sure 2. Windows2003 serv |fileserver for intranet| then we go to my baystack 350-24t 10/100mbs autosensing it has other systems connected to it that i ocasionally have on letz try and draw a picture ! [glow=red,2,300] cable modem - linksys router -linux server (FC3) -win2003 server (bit torrent machine azerous) -old at&t hub (10mb/s) - 100ft cable to another 10mb/s hub - one xp box with p2p - yet another 100ft cable to another 10mb/s hub - one xp box w/ p2p - one xp box w/ p2p [/glow] now im using bittorrent (azerous) just started like yesterday and the other computers (my neighbors) are hardcore into P2P and have imesh on all the time can anyone help me optimize this so i can have greater upload speed ? and tell me which system to test from to get a accurate reading ? and a few other questions .. can i limit the upload speed from the other computers so i can run it all to my linux server ? because the p2p crap everyone does on my network will like never stop ? i would love to give my two servers all of my upload speed through the router or something but im not sure how ... itz a linksys let me know if yallneed the model # by the way thanks for this site it is kick ass
