How important is router capacity with 100 clients
Posted on 2013-01-25
In our school I have set up 100 clients, most of which are members of a Windows Server 2003 domain. There is only 1 server which is both domain controller and file server.
We receive internett over a 15Mbit/15Mbit fiber optic connection.
The router/gateway I use is a very basic Lynksys WRT54GL which is a wireless unit, but I have deactivated the wireless function, so it is only acting as a wired router/gateway.
There is no VPN functionallity, so it only working as a simple internet router for accessing the internet. We have no web server running on our domain controller.
How important is the capacity of this router/gateway. Should I purchase a unit with greater capacity. Will it speed up our system at all with 100 clients accessing the internett?
