    Windows Software recommendation for network monitoring?

    Zeek is a well known network monitoring system. You can feed it the flow information by mirroring the appropriate ports of your router with interesting traffic. It works nice on a raspberry pi. Beware, compiling it on pi will take quite some time

    The Raspberry Pi Thread

    I followed the instructions here for my Raspberry Pi 4 heating issue. The fan comes on when the temps exceed 62 and switches off at 50. This can be changed in the config files to your requirements. The circuit is very simple with just 1 transistor, diode and resistor. Without speed control the...

    help me build most secured Home Network to last a decade.

    I suggest you go with a cheap Mikrotik HAP AC lite first and see if it suits your requirements and is easy enough for you to manage. If that works for you, then go for the RB4011 etc. As somebody mentioned in the thread already its got a steep learning curve

    The Raspberry Pi Thread

    The Pi4 needs a fan to keep it from throttling. The small fans available are noisy, especially when everything else is quiet. Some simple circuit and code is available if you search the internet to keep things sane

    RB750Gr3 - If you want to do VLANs, it is slightly complex as it lacks a proper switch chip. It can be done but not straightforward. Also note that it can do hardware forwarding only on one bridge. If you create another bridge you dont get hardware acceleration. Other than that it is a stellar...

    help me build most secured Home Network to last a decade.

    Look at mikrotik routers and access points. They are very flexible and most things can be achieved by using the gui. Setup Pi-hole and vpn services if worried about security. It is preferable to do these in small steps. It will be difficult to get everything done in one go In Openwrt you can do...

    BLDC Ceiling Fans

    I think our bedrooms are smaller at 13x 12 or so. We mostly at use it at 2'nd speed or at extreme temps at 3. Since your room is quite large, you might need a different model

    BLDC Ceiling Fans

    I have 2 Superfan A1 in the bedrooms. They are reasonably quiet and are trouble-free so far. One of it is more than an year old and the other is about 6 months. I have changed to BLDC where the fans are used for extended hours as that is where the power consumption matters. The cost is nearly 3...
