I can't believe nobody has mentioned the potential to integrate CO/smoke detectors into LinuxMCE. This could potentially let the system alert everyone in the house where a fire is, see the fire via webcam, and even automatically call the fire department/police/etc.
yeah, as long as they have the correct gateway and dns server entries they will. do you have enough ports for it all? when you say it was successfully connected to the wan port did you mean you were able to access the router from linuxmce?
Tried plugging it in to the LAN port and everything works great, yes i could access the router from the core before but now its all working smoothly
I just setup a core machine with dual NICs, one is connected to the cable modem and the other is connected to the WAN port on my wireless router. The problem is, while the router is successfully connected to the core, the machines connected to the router cannot receive DHCP from the core. What do I need to set or open in my router so that machines can receive IPs from the core on the WAN port of the router?
For $250 this machine would cost $249 less than Fiire's cheapest MD, making it appealing to more users.
How many of you would purchase one of these?
I would suggest going for a socket AM2 + onboard 6150 mobo for reduced heat and better performance for I would think a similar price.
Thanks for the suggestion. I shopped around and came up with this setup for the same price +/- $1. Gigabyte AM2 MB (DVI, VGA, HDMI, SPDIF) More details AMD Sempron 1.9GHz Socket AM2 45W Processor 1GB DDR2-800 RAM Same case and DVD drive
