January 23 2014

Check out our transcript here.

Make your own Bootable OS X Mavericks USB Drive, build a Raspberry Pi WebCam, and learn Home Router Basics.

Bootable Mavericks USB Drive & Clean OS X Install

Parts List
- 8GB USB Drive
- Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later

Step 1. Download OS X Mavericks

DHCP Fun!

Many Know-It-Alls have requested a little information about tricking out their DHCP server in order to make their network more flexible and accomodating to permanent devices. The following information should give you the knowledge you need to create statics in your network.

Collecting Information
You need a few pieces of information about your existing network. The easiest way (on a Windows PC) to know your settings is to, using a computer currently connected to the network, drop into a CMD shell (Start-Run-"CMD"-Enter) and type "ipconfig/all". You need to write down three pieces of information:

* Default Gateway
* Subnet Mask
* DNS Server

Now log into your home router and go into the basic network settings. You should see a section for DHCP or "LAN Settings" - There you will see a setting that tells the router where to START the DHCP range and where to stop. For example, if my router tells me that the DHCP range starts at 192.168.222.100 and allows for 50 users, I know my range is 192.168.222.100 to 192.168.222.149.

Now that I know the range of automatically allocated addresses, I can use the three pieces of information I recorded previously to statically address any other device on my network.

Using the previous example, if I know:

The range of my DHCP server is 192.168.222.100-192.168.222.149
& that my default gateway is: 192.168.222.1
& that my subnet mask is : 255.255.255.0
& that my DNS server is: 208.67.222.222

I can configure ANY device to have a static address with the following parameters:
IP address: Anything between 192.168.222.2 to 192.168.222.99, AND 192.168.222.150 to 192.168.222.254
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
DNS: 208.67.222.222

Enjoy!
