retrofit small office network
Posted on 2006-11-24
The basics first:
Currently, i have 6 computers running windows xp and windows 2000 on a peer to peer network.
We currently share ms access databases, spreadsheets and quickbooks accounting files across the network
Some of our files have grown from 10Mb to over 300Mb, thus slowing network access.
We would like to add wireless technology for a couple of laptops we have in the office
- rewire office with cat6
- purchase Netgear GS108 switch (10/100/1000 copper gigabit switch)
- purchase Netgear GA311 PCI Adapters for all computers
- purchase Netgear FWG114P wireless router
connect ADSL Modem to Netgear FWG114P wireless router, setup DHCP
connect Netgear GS108 switch to Netgear FWG114P
connect office computers to GS108
I am looking for reviews and comments on this proposed set up.
