Hello all,

What I would like to do is shut off DHCP in my router and have my Server issue all ip's. At the same time I would like the server to be connected to PIA VPN (Private Internet Access) using their software My goal is to have my whole network on the VPN.
I have done this with DDWRT and my router but my router became very unstable on DDWRT. So I flashed back to stock Rom and think I can make this happen with my server. The server does have dual Nic's if that helps.

Hardware Mac Pro 3.1 (early 2008) Dual Nic's and WIFI card installed. running as a home server with Plex, Sabnzbd, Sonarr Qbitorrent ETC...

Netgear R8000 NightHawk router running stock firmware.

Multiple Windows machines, Macs, Androoids idevices etc...

Trendnet 16 port Gigabit switch

Any ideas on how to correctly do this? I know if I play around long enough I would figure it out eventually but my family will dispose of my body if the internet is down to long. So the better informed I am before I do this the better my chances of survival

Laptop wifi dying when other laptop crashes.
So whenever my girlfriend force resets her laptop, it bluescreens, or otherwise dies, the WiFi connection that my laptop maintains gets severed, and I cannot connect to the internet unless I reboot.

Laptop can't connect to my home router, others are fine.
Hi, As the title says I was using the internet one evening, turned it off my laptop which is an Acer 5332, the next day turn it on only to find I am disconnected from the home router and can't connect to it. My Ipad is able to connect to it without a problem. I tried connecting to a friends...
