post your home router and/or switch
let me start off
Wake on LAN FTW
Linksys RV04 and 8 port switch..
Are you running a server from your house or something?
Dunno about the posted, but I do run an exchange server/ad server/fileserver
Ad server? You mean like ads run off of your server for websites?
AD = Active Directory Server.
I'm the first to say that I don't know shit about networking stuff.
Nope. Thats a dedicated rack for testing and practicing before i implement them on a production network.
i would get fired if i mess something up, mistakes are not acceptable.
i also use it to study for my upcoming cisco certs.
1 X D-link DGL-4300
2 x Cisco 2600's
1 X Cisco 1900s
I mooch off my neighbor's wireless.
linksys wrt54gs with DD-WRT ftw.
it works and was under $50 total
Those netgear boxes look nice. Do they ever overheat?
wrt54g v2.2 with DD-WRT
We use a lot of Cisco gear at work but the stuff I'm directly involved with are the multilayer 9500 series SAN switches
What's the difference between layer 2 and layer 3 switches?
layer 2 switches is just like a regular switch
layer 3 switches like the cisco 3550 can do routing plus switching
stay away from the netgear boxes for home users. they will overheat, lock up, and drop your wireless connection.
if you would like to get a netgear router, get their business models like the one i have FWG114P. Its a little bit more expensive but the stability it offers will justify it.
My Netgear router has never overheated/dropped a wireless signal, and I keep it in the laundry room which can be pretty warm and I've had it for nearly 2 years.
Thanks, so I assume layer 3 switches are typically managed then?
Layer 2 switches can be as well.
I've had to immerse myself into playing with wifi alot lately for work. I have another 5 setup around my house in a WDS with WPA. Just trying to see how much the DD-WRT can take and if it can stand an business enviroment.
I have a WRT54G that works less than half the time for wifi.
I am really going to have to learn networking pretty soon.
I haven't needed to do it yet, so I've avoided it but I hate not
knowing what's going on with that stuff.
Plus, it would be fun to learn how to mooch off of wifi.
I <3 my WRT54GL, never drops my WiFI unless someone calls the house and my cordless phone is off the base. Gotta upgrade the phone to 2.4Ghz model soon.
