Setup a small office network
Posted on 2002-06-14
Hope you can help.
I have been asked by a friend if i can setup a small netwok in her office, their are:
Their is no existing Network infrastructure so would need to install all the cabling if i was to go for a hardwired solution. In light of this i fell that it would be cheaper to install a Wireless LAN, my only problem with this is i have never set this up before.
They have just a normal freeserve dialup to retrieve email and for some unknown reason they have a seperate dial up for internet browsing.
What i would like to do is set them up in a peer to peer configuration for data sharing, and so they can share the internet connection.. I am going to try and convince them to invest in ADSL but not sure of cost.
Could someone let me know what hardware i will need and if they think this is a good solution or not, and what complications may arise if any.
They are a charity so cost is a huge issue!!
