What hardware +
Posted on 2004-09-30
Client with a small office network as follows:
1 XP Pro machine used as server - downstairs in room 1
1 XP client machine downstairs in room 2
2 XP client machines upstairs in room 3
3 XP client machines in room 4
May want to add to these later.
I have 6 CAT5 cables installed in the walls from the server room to the rooms with the client machines. I do not want to use wireless.
Want to network all together with ADSL dialup BT Braodband (UK)
What modem router would I use? The only ones I can find only have 4 lan ports. Such as the Netgear DG834 which is adsl modem, router and 4 port lan switch combined.
It's importqnt that all PC's have full access to the server PC and ADSL access to the internet.
Help, advice, recommendations, full instructions etc. appreciated very much.
