I like guns, find range shooting enjoyable, believe self defense is a right and support responsible ownership (so you know I'm not anti gun at all...). Goodness, if this is real, the stupidity burns.

All it takes is one stay radio signal on two frequencies at roughly the same time and you have yourself a problem: Left turn, trigger pull.

No. Just no.
This isn't the first video we've seen of a firearm attached to a consumer-grade drone, but it is the most convincing. The 14-second clip, uploaded to YouTube last Friday, claims to show a "homemade...

Networking question:

Does anyone know of a good GSM to Ethernet modem (something I could hook up to my own router, not a WiFi hotspot that creates it's own network). Obviously I could just buy a hotspot and pick it up with an AP acting as a client, and hook that to my router, but that is obviously less than ideal, and less reliable.

I also use the TL-MR3040. You can use it as a wifi AP or cable it to your own switch or router. Inexpensive.

How much overhead does a double NAT add to your outgoing packets? And more importantly, will this overhead affect me much, considering my slow connections? My two modems are actually Frontier internet all-in-one router/modem things, and they currently have NAT on, so they both have DCHP servers running which hand out an address to the main router. Past that, all the clients on the network connect to the main router, which dynamically routes connections toward each modem, depending on load.

Each modem has 1.5/0.3 mbps connections, so I don't have much bandwidth.

Modem 1 --> Main Router
Modem 2 --> Main Router

I'm not judging. I'm sure most of us have borrowed the neighbor's Internet a time or two. I've got one neighbor with an unlocked "Netgear" SSID. One day I scanned the wifi and found a "set your password" in its place. I changed it back to "Netgear" for them 😀

Anyone ever create a network based garage door opener before? I'm trying to decide the best way to do it....does the raz pi have network capabilities? I assume I'd need an external relay?

Nb: I have (or can have) access to live cat5 to the garage door motor if needed.

I'd like to set up 2 Raspberry Pi's as a personal; VPN tunnel set.

One lives at home, the other is a portable router I can take anywhere which automatically creates a VPN tunnel to the one at home and puts my traffic over VPN, with the idea being that the portable one would be almost plug and play, so I can take it with me and both protect my traffic and access my network resources.

Is that crazy or doable?

I'm currently doing something similar to this. I'm using an RPi to be a wired to wireless level 2 bridge.

Hey +Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ ,

I'd beg to differ a bit on your comments about increasing your speed and throughput and bandwidth on KH#155, assuming I understood you correctly. Yes, adding an extra modem (with a different ISP, so they are on different lines) technically doesn't increase your throughput, in practice, it gives a faster connection in most cases. Several example cases:

1) Multiple users, each one will have more speed because you are not bogging the other user down as much.

2) Browsing would give the best effect, because each object (stylesheet, javascript, image) on the page will have it's own separate connection (maybe 20 connections just to load the page, sometimes even from multiple domains or multiple servers), you usually have an effective throughput of the combined WAN links. The effect continues if you have multiple tabs open or multiple users (see pt 1).

So yes, if you are using FTP and transferring a single file, your throughput will be limited to whatever WAN link it is traveling over. But in practice, it often can speed up general use. 

Am I off base here or did I misunderstand you? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

+Ben Reese It SHOULD be... but it's not. Sadly, the cable providers in the US don't provision anywhere near enough bandwidth per node to support what the standard can do.

Having some trouble with my laptop...it's not in front of me, so apologies for the lack of exact specs, but needless to say, it's more than enough.

It's a lenovo thinkpad, running an intel i7 or i9, 12 GB of ram, and a 512gb ssd as the main system drive, as well as a spinning HDD as a secondary drive (hooked up where the CD drive used to be).

Overall, it's quite fast, between the processor and the SSD, it boots up in a flash, loads Photoshop or premiere in the time most computers open paint, and overall, runs well.

But multiple times a day, windows explorer lags like crazy (and has since I got it a few months ago). I'll right click a file and it will take 8 seconds to rename a 20kb text file, for example. Not every time, but at least several times a day.

Ideas?
