My System Specs


Well I got an uber old SpeedTouch Home(?) modem from Bell. It only has a 10Mbps LAN port. That goes to my D-Link GamerLounge DGL-4300, which goes to a D-Link 8-port gigabit switch going to a Netgear 5-port gigabit switch.

Connected to the network are 4 desktops, a home "server", HTPC, XBOX360 (currently in repairs), 2 wireless laptops, wireless PDA and a Brother all-in-one.

Mostly everything is gigabit other than 1 desktop (my mom's), the XBOX and the printer.

Nothing extreme here. Just all home-consumer products.

Well my network has changed ever so slightly now due to a freebe from my work :) I now have an old Compaq Proliant 3000 rack mount server :). Here are some pics of my network rack (not done yet) and the server.

Network Rack

Ok so from top to bottom

Speedtouch 516 Modem
Netgear 24 Port Managed Switch
Netgear Router
Email / Games Server
Lucent WAP
Netgear 16 Port Backup Switch
Intel SS-4000 NAS
Cisco Catalyst 5002 Switch (not used yet)
2500 Series Cisco Router (not in use yet)

This is not the best picture but considering the server weighs in at over 120lbs i am not to keen on moving it. But here it is in all it's glory.

Dual P2 450Mhz
5x 9.1 SCSI in Raid 5
2x 18.1 SCSI in Raid 0+1
12/24GB DAT Tape Drive
CD-ROM Drive
Compaq Ethernet Nic

I know, i'm a nerd. :)
and now for something completely different

I'm on one of 4 HP Procurve 48 port switches in this building... campus network, I don't think it qualifies as a "home network" by most stretches.

I have:

- A Trendnet Wireless G router (TEW-452BRP)
- A Freedoom 9 10/100mb switch
- 1 USACOM wireless G PCI NIC
- 1 Foxconn wireless G PCI NIC (Ralink RT2500)

1. HTPC (living room) accesses the web via wireless
2. Gaming PC accesses the web wired to the router
3. LAMP server connects to the web via switch plugged in the router
4. Girlfriend's PC connects to the web via switch as well

I know it looks like a stupid setup, but I'm trying to understand the ins and outs of networking, sub-networks, forwarding, firewalls, etc ...
