  1. Cheapest way of hosting a large file for downloading

    Yeah it is very expensive. What would be considered a small amount, i could always try a smaller amount such as what, 3TB? I really don't know how much will be downloaded but just wanted to go with like 10TB to cover my self.
  2. Cheapest way of hosting a large file for downloading

    The storage is cheap but its the transfer that costs.
  3. Cheapest way of hosting a large file for downloading

    Its a various FL Studio files.
  4. I have a 55GB file that i want to upload to a server where i can give people the link and then them be able to download it. My budget is around £15/$20 a month. I would prefer a 1Gbps port but 100Mbps is fine. I'd imagine i will be using about 10TB of transfer a month maybe less so either a unmetered or high bandwidth connection is best. What would be the best way for me to do this? Would it be just storing it on a service such as Google drive and paying for a bigger drive space? I plan to upload other large files in the future so 200GB+ of space will be required sooner rather than later. Or would the other best way to be to buy a cheap dedicated server or vps? Any recommendations and thanks for your help. Luke.
  5. Finding correct power adapter for a router?

    Mine has positive polarity
  6. Finding correct power adapter for a router?

    Contact TP-Link and ask?
  7. This is a quick and simple one, I have a TP-Link Archer C58 router. The power adapter has stopped working and I need a new one. On the adapter it says its 12VDC @ 1A but I cannot find anywhere or on the TP Link site what the barrel size of the power adapter is. Any ideas what power adapter I need for this? From what I can see the sizes are either 2.1mm or 2.5mm inner both with a 5.5mm outer. Would this be ok? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Febay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F172540551428
  8. Wireless Point To Point Link 5km

    Ah ok, thank you for the info. I'm going to borrow my mates drone soon and kind of have a look at what can be done, if we can clear the treeline with a fairly short pole then i'll probably end up mounting some Powerbeam AC gear on each end. Thank you everyone for your help. If you have anything else extra to add or say just post it here. I'll update this post in a couple months time on if i did it or not and my reasons why. That's if i remember.
  9. Wireless Point To Point Link 5km

    Ahh crap, i see. Even here in the UK?
  10. Wireless Point To Point Link 5km

    Sure is . 300Mbps soon coming too. Yeh i definitely want some Ubnt equipment. What do you mean local height restrictions? Can you not have poles higher than a certain height? Also i won't be used the connection full time, plus its not reselling the connection so i presume it should be ok but i will check anyway. Well if i can get over the tree's then i will definitely get 5Ghz for that higher bandwidth right? Or if some tree line will be in my way i will go 2.4Ghz.
  11. Wireless Point To Point Link 5km

    Ok, well £300 is $395 dollars so it don't mind if its a bit over 300$. Ok, well i'm going to get my buddies drone and see what kind of tree line we are dealing with, might have to go with a 2.4Ghz link then. Thanks
  12. Wireless Point To Point Link 5km

    EHHH, any help on estimating how high the pole what have to be? The height difference in terrain alone is 24m xD. And at least 15m of trees at the lower house with the 200Mbps speeds.
  13. Wireless Point To Point Link 5km

    Does that include 0 tree line? Or a little bit of tops of some trees might be ok?
  14. Wireless Point To Point Link 5km

    I want to do a Point to Point link wireless probably using Ubiquiti gear, what gear do i need from them. The link is about 5Km (4.2Km as you can see below). I want to get around a 100Mbps link speed, for sharing internet and resources. Since at my current home i only get 8Mbps. At my family members house they get 200Mbps so yeah. Do you think the height will be a difficult thing? Also what is the cheapest i can setup a 100Mbps link for? I was thinking a budget of around £300 all in, just for the Ubiquiti Equipment forget the mounting gear i will add that on top. U I'm guessing this AirMax stuff is goes to be the cheapest for achieving what i want but please do correct me.
  15. Budget Earphones

    Reviews look a bit mixed on those. My friend also uses these i'm just wondering how well they are going to stay in my ears since i have quite small ears the buds never seem to hold in my ear canal, any feedback on this for me? Do you get multiple buds that are easy to change and fit well?
