Appley Question

Filed under: Gear, tech — groenefee @ 10:21 am

So here’s a question:

A and I decided to beef up our shitty wireless network and go 801.11n. I set up this system:

dsl modem
801.11n Airport—-[ethernet]—-Old 801.11g Airport—[gWiFi]—-Wii/visitingcomps/gAirtunesEx
Comp/A’s Lap/nAirtunesEx

Everything is working great with a dedicated 801.11n 5g stream and a 801.11g 2.4g stream (net is distributing fine, all devices show when they should, logs show stable leases etc…) Except that the 801.11g Airtunes via the old Airport Extreme isn’t available to the 801.11n people. If I log onto the “g” network, I can access the speakers, but from the primary network…nada….thoughts?

The Ark just failed

Filed under: tech — groenefee @ 8:26 pm

Don’t know what to do about this. 98% should be backed up. .5 of my RAID went down. Will accept all intelligent solutions. Have removed offending raid array from Wotan for the time being. Hoping I can make a heroic stab at rescue. But right now I NEED to walk away.


think I’ll put in a 100 on Sunday.
