plambrechtsen: Telecom 'cause we are awesome.


My problem with you guys is that the modem you supply only has 100Mbps ethernet ports. I am planning on getting a nas server set up soon and I would like gigabit ports. I could just buy my own modem though but it's hard to find VDSL modems in New Zealand, no where sells them.

Vodafone Modem for VDSL has Gigabit all around.
Dont buy a NAS, Get a file server.

I thought they were the same thing, looks like I'm going to have to hit Google and do some research.

File server = Junk PC with lots of drives.
NAS = Expensive piece of slow transfer storage device.

I plan on buying a Minnowboard Max by intel when it comes out and hooking all my drives up to it. I imagine it will cost less than $250.

AKA, Intel's Raspberry Pi
Just get a cheap PC on trademe with tonnes of SATA ports and an average case. Setup windows server or Debian and fill it up with drives.

I have been considering that recently, how much does it cost you? Last I looked it was dirt cheap compared to Sky.
