In 2018, it’s hard to think about a life without the internet. The Internet has opened so many new possibilities. If someone told me 10 years ago that I would walk around with a watch that I can talk to and tell it to turn off the lights at home, I would not believe a second of it. Yet, here we are.
Since I am working with networking and computers, I need to have some basic knowledge about protocols and what they are. In one way, it’s the worst, since all these abbreviations are complicated and very technical. On the other side, they are such a big part of computing and networking, so you quickly learn the most important ones.
When I bought my first NAS, I put it in a closet, far away from me or anyone else. The goal was to transfer movies and files fast over the network. I expected speeds of 100MB/s but ended up with 30-40/MB/s, something that I wasn’t happy with at all. Something had to be done so I could get the most out of my new NAS. If you are here, I guess you are in the same boat as I once was.
