I am setting up in a bed and breakfast, Internet access from their 16 rooms
I am intending to set up a network of a total of 24 drops in 4 bldgs in a 750' area for "online" Internet access.
Cabling backbone: cat. 5 solid 4 pair twisted pvc or fiberoptic?
Area: An area of 4 very small bldngs in a row
Distance: 750 feet from end to end
Stations: a total of 24 drops with RJ45 wall outlets
Use: Constant Internet connection (on line) at 64 kbps for all stations today but 400mhz in the near future
Should I go witha hub under each bldg or just swithches?
Bldgn A: 4 stations
Bldng B: 8 stations
Bldng C: 2 stations
Bldng D: 10 stations
What I have planned is:
2000 feet of cable cat 5 or fiber as sugested
Female wall connectors RJ45
Patch cables with Snuggles boots 5'
2 hubs with switches of 8 ports such as dhs-8 from d-link
2 hubs with swithches of 16 ports (dhs-16)
1 Internet router Routers from d-link (601) or like a Cisco 805 serial w/ v24 cable and fast ethernet
Any advise as to where to go to receive assistance.
