25 Gigabit Linux internet router PC build - Michael Stapelberg

init7 recently announced that with their FTTH fiber offering Fiber7, they will now sell and connect you with 25 Gbit/s (Fiber7-X2) or 10 Gbit/s (Fiber7-X) fiber optics, if you want more than 1 Gbit/s. While this offer will only become available at my location late this year (or possibly later due to the supply chain shortage), I already wanted to get the hardware on my end sorted out.

Oof I checked the post.

This person is just wasting resources for nothing really needed.

Sad consumerism.

I’m really torn about this point. On one hand - yes, consumerism, capitalism bad, superficial stuff. On the other hand, this shit really tickles my hobby senses. Doing over-the-top IT just because we can. Playing with the silly stuff. Being a kid again, just with better toys.

No home user ever needs this much. UNLESS we are talking about the ocessional requirements of backing/restoring things.

Even DUAL PROCs dedicated unit rentals are rarely defaulting to 10Gbps options.

This person could be also contributing to a community network like Guifi.net

Good luck getting an ISP to let you push your pipe though. We have 200Mbps on Spectrum but man even downloading 1.2xGB backups to my PC is a pain in the rear.

I didn’t understand with the expression “to let you push your pipe”.

Did you even read how Guifi.net network work?

There are internet nodes (they manage exit nodes to internet) and there are internal nodes which are connected to other internal nodes or internet nodes.

The installation is separated and to be able to put your own wire in the street you only need to ask to your neighboors in most cases or use a parabolic antenna configured as wireless AP to the secondary routers to repeat the signal to other building which also build a similar infraestructure as receiver.

Away from that, here is a right in several companies to be able to replace your main router even in Optic Fiber infraestructure. (You don’t need this for Guifi.net though)

If you were running a media server from home to some of your family and/or friends, you could benefit from this. For example, a single 4k stream can use up to 120Mbps.

And that doesn’t even account for the actual people on the network, or other things running on the server and/or other servers.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
