I am attempting to upgrade my business network. We have been having connectivity issues, such as lag time in our internet speeds. A friend of mine mentioned that it may be due to the all of the items that are connected into the network such as our printers, tvs, servers and of course, computers. We have a basic cable line via time warner and a T-1 line may be out of our price range at this point. Our connection is the same one that I have at home. I have tired doing some reserach on what would be the best way to manage the network and keep us efficent. At any given time we have 4 computers accessing the network (2 at all times both Macs).
The modem that we have now is a Motorola 567005-005-00 Surfboard Cable Modem http://www.compsource.com/pn/56700500500/Motorola_297/
I use a dlink wireless router- D-Link DIR-655 - http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=530
I have a small netgear hub that allows me to plug in more items and I am sure slow everything down.
My question then becomes would it be feasible to invest in a more powerful modem, hub/ switch and wirleless router.
Modem: Motorola SBG901 SURFboard® Wireless Cable Modem Gateway http://www.frys.com/product/6046278?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG
Switch/ hub: Netgear GS724TNA Prosafe 24 Port Gigabit Smart Switch http://www.frys.com/product/5176046?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG
Wireless Router: ROSAFE® 802.11N‡ DUAL BAND WIRELESS ACCESS POINT WNDAP330 http://www.netgear.com/Products/APsWirelessControllers/AccessPoints/WNDAP330.aspx
I am guessing these all need to work together and I want to make sure that I am on the right path...and that is why I am here.
Thank for your help.
