unmanged no reason to manage them they will do all the work for you. A decent router and firewall is the most important piece of networking equipment.

So install a firewall and then just use the distribution network switches and then network switches on the racks? Do you have any recommendations on the firewalls and the switches please? Thanks

Get a like 11 of these NETGEAR GS348 48-Port Gigabit Ethernet

Plug those into the main firewall/router that way you don't need to run a bunch of long cables instead have 48 miners per switch.

pfsense will probably give you the most bang for your buck as long as you know how to configure it

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

When a moderator has moved your thread to the correct subsection, it is pretty bad form to move it back yourself. Please familiarise yourself with the rules of the mining section.

Developer/maintainer for cgminer and ckpool/ckproxy.
ZERO FEE Pooled mining at ckpool.org, 1% Fee Solo mining at solo.ckpool.org

Ck... I think there is some misunderstanding here. I didn’t move the thread back to the incorrect section nor the thread was moved into another section before. Would never break the rules of the community. Thanks
