TL;DR: No. More complete answer in response to comments by this user. Tomato USB based Router - Enterprise features at fraction of price. Just because a product has "Enterprise features" doesn't make it an enterprise class of device. Certainly either of these firmwares may be arguably better than vendor provided firmwares, but that doesn't make them ...

We are aware of the shortfall, but rather than simply appointing another Pro Tem, we decided it was time to have a full community election! That is the first step following graduation — Congratulations! You're about to graduate. As a pleasant surprise, we managed to get your site design finished way sooner than originally anticipated, so we will be ...

to make sure my question was going to be on-topic. I noticed a spelling error on this page: "Network" is misspelled in the heading "Off-topic: Users / Customers of Enterprise or Service Provider Netrworks." I just fixed the typo, and looked for others. That was my mistake the last time I edited the document. I don't know if a new question in Meta is ...

Closing Questions Historical context: Usenet .moderated Newsgroups If you've been on any of the Usenet .moderated newsgroups, all posts are reviewed first, and then evaluated for acceptance; the goal is to keep problem discussions from arising. .moderated groups take a default-deny stance, and the question is permitted if it's judged as appropriate. Stack ...

You are perfectly free to answer an old question with a new answer. New information and/or clarification is welcome, especially with backup documentation and links for the documentation. The OP is free to change the accepted answer, or may have simply moved on. Another option is to provide a comment clarifying or adding information to the accepted answer. ...

Your question has several problems. First, it is about a problem on a network that you do not directly control. You must contact the network administrators for help. In your comment, you ask: Where in the description does it say that I have to control the network? The What topics can I ask about here? says: and meets the following requirements ...

A few remarks here: nowhere in your original question you mentioned the words 'doctor' or 'surgeries'. You consistently mention 'houses' and 'homes'. To me it feels as if you're trying to come up with reasons why this question may be be on topic after you were told it's not. you don't mention the brands or models of hardware involved, yet you are talking ...

(By the way, I have noticed that there are no votes to reopen the question from the community. Asking a question on a community that does not actually want the question means that the question will languish forever, with no answer. That is not what you want, and we are trying to get you to the right place, with the right question, to get an answer to your ...

Yes, that feature is available but is not exposed by any means in the UI. You can construct the url yourself with following recipe: In the address bar of your browser replace questions with posts replace everyting after the last / with timeline For your meta question, this will be the result: https://networkengineering.meta.stackexchange.com/posts/...

I don't think any SE site will be able to properly answer the question, since it's quite subjective (what you consider to be distorted and what you observe may not be what others experience) and open to speculation (since most of us don't know the exact implementation of telephony systems at those specific companies). As was pointed out in a comment, the ...

Most likely, yes. Although I must say that you could probably find out the differences between most of these virtual devices on the Juniper site, since (v)SRX, (v)VMX and (v)QFX are described in detail there.

The answers from @YLearn and @RonMaupin already address the off-topic part, so I'd like to answer the bounty part. In my experience of this site, good questions do receive answers, without the need of a bounty. When they do not receive an answer, it is because nobody present at the time has a good answer to propose. A bounty is more likely to attract poor ...

What you are trying to do isn't a question about networking. Just because something uses networking doesn't make it a networking question. Wi-Fi Direct allows two client devices to connect to each other directly and transfer data without the use of any intermediary devices. Wi-Fi Direct does not support connecting multiple clients to multiple other clients ...

Part of your problem is that you don't give a good description or diagram of the network, the network device models and configurations, etc. We can help with enterprise network devices, but your hosts, servers, applications, and consumer-grade devices are all off-topic on network engineering.

You forgot the one caveat: "under your direct control (if the network is not under your control you will not likely be able to provide the information required to answer your question)." Also, the different LTE carriers do things differently, so there really isn't a one-size-fits-all answer. There are also other reasons, such as CGNAT is for personal ...

I don't think mods have the 'power' to check this, but most likely this user downvoted some of your questions or answers, and by deleting his account you got these points back.

That question has no clear answer (depending on transmission technology, energy-to-bandwidth ratio, compression technology/efficiency, compressibility of data, etc), leading to speculation - and making it off-topic here.

There is a comprehensive list of these 'magic links' on Meta Stack Exchange. I'm not reproducing the list here; that link is unlikely to break and we don't want to maintain that list in several places.

The first line in your post is: Is there any programmable or configurable box that does "switching" at the physical level? That is either a question seeking a Yes/No answer, which is a bad question, or you are asking for a product. Questions like that really are not suitable for SE sites (other than Hardware Recommendations). Your other question ...

Not only is it acceptable to provide new answers to old questions, Stack Exchange encourages it by providing two separate badges as awards for new answers that receive upvotes. There are several related questions on Stack Exchange meta or the meta sites from other sites in the network. For example: here, here, or here. I can provide more, but they all come ...

A question without an accepted answer will be "modified" by the system from time to time so that it pops back up and gets looked at again. It will keep looking for an answer until it has an accepted answer. This happens on all the SE sites.

Time keeping is something the operating system does, it's not part of the network layers. Questions about operating systems like linux are off topic here. Your question is really not suited here, but can be on topic on https://superuser.com or https://serverfault.com. Your argument that a protocol uses networking is irrelevant, that would make any question ...

I think Ron Maupin tried to explain to you more than once in the comments why the question was closed. I don't see what I can add to that. I have no idea what SE would be more appropriate, but that (or the fact that other PBX related questions were not closed) does not make this question on topic. What you're asking is off topic for this SE. As it is, I ...

Tags are created by adding them to the taglist on a question. There's no option on the tag overview page to add a new tag without linking it to a question. As far as I'm aware you have more than enough reputation to do this. If not, you need to at least specify to which question this tag should be added.

the server does not respond to the request on the broadcast IP That means it's not a router configuration issue. Furthermore, he's provided zero information on how the router and server are connected / supposed to see each other. If the server isn't seeing broadcasts from the router, that's an issue with either the server or the network. We have ...

No question is ever closed on a SE site without a reason given. While there may or may not be a comment by those closing the question, the close statement always provides some sort guidance to what is wrong and at least one link to the help center. For example, a question closed for being off topic includes this text on our site: This question appears to be ...

I reopened your question after your edits. You have a couple of misconceptions: Can we agree that VPNs aren't really used in home networking? (You know besides Network Engineers practicing for production networks.) That is incorrect. Many home users use VPNs DHCP is basically layer 3 with a little layer 2 involved via ARP. That is incorrect. DHCP is not ...

Unfortunately, you can't force that as far as I'm aware. If noone reviews those questions within a certain time they will reappear in your review queue.

yesterday I realized it is unupvote and I understand you can not downvote or unupvote a Q or A unless it has been edited You are correct, after a user casts a vote it becomes locked after a short time. This means a user cannot change their vote which helps prevent things like "rage vote reversals" or other abuses that would otherwise take place. However, ...
