It seems my preference for home network constantly shifts, on one hand, Wifi is easier to setup and requires no cables, on the other, a fixed network is much more reliable. As I have an increasing number of devices in general, and in the basement in particular (the inverter, the power panel and now the 3D printer), I had to shuffle things a bit, and run a connection over the power-lines from the first floor, where the fibre router is, to the basement.
In order to keep track of things, I assigned the fixed devices (printers, NAS etc), fixed adresses and created a small web-page with the links for all the devices that have some form of web-interface. And then it struck me: I have a small web at home, with seven web-servers, which includes a web-cam (on the 3D printer). This is an impressive evolution from a system which will be 30 years old next year.
