Hey everyone, I'm making some changes to my LAN and thought I would share them with you all and offer you the chance to really show off your LAN as well.

Heres my LAN right now:



What I plan to soon, is:
  • Wire the CAT5 into Jackpoints
  • Put sisters laptop on Wifi
  • Use the router as a node, replacing it with what is currently "My PC" (Getting a laptop <- Wifi also)
  • Use an old PC as a fileserver
So what does your LAN look like?
UPDATE: Better Image

I am in the middle of moving a server and adding a switch, so I won't post a diagram here until later...

Black is POTS
Blue is Cat5e
Red is USB

This is all in bits at the moment, as the DSL modem and Belkin WiFi are new today. I have two cordless dualphones and two full base units, though only one gets used for connectivity, the second is just for charging. There is also bluetooth hanging off the Linux box and the laptop (and soon the XP box), and the XP box also has WiFi.

Plans include another higher powered box to run SBS and Linux in a virtual environment, and take some load off the massively overworked XP box (which has lots of little bits and peices running on it, with very low free resources.)

not sure on how to post a pic so this will have to do.

*cable modem(10mbps/2mbps 40gig)* to *USR wireless router* splits to *"work desktop" "new desktop" "work laptop" as well as any other laptop i happen to have in the house.

All wired as USR is inbetween wireless video sender. Furthest pc is around 20m of cat6 away, though 10m would probably have done the trick...

Here is my basic network... I could do a lot more to improve things. However given the current situation - it is unlikely this layout will change until I move out and set up a new network at a different location.

Not so fancy as adamj's drawing... But again, I am still moving things here.

The connection to the tubes is 10Mbps/2Mbps. I use Hamachi to create the VPN to the servers hosted somewhere else in the cloud, so yes, it counts as my LAN.

Here's mine. Looks compilcated when you draw it. But works well, and means I don't have any wireless black spots...

Ok, works for me but no-one else, any pointer for telling ol' stupido (me) how to get a picture in here?

EDIT, try again....

UPDATE:

This is my network diagram.



We have Xbox, PS2 and another pc that is not currently connected. There's also another connection which is for TCL Saturn Digital decoder and modem, but that's not part of this network.

p/s: I found this free online charting applet (Gliffy). It uses Flash as an online application. Free to sign up, and what's even better, if you update on the file and save, it gets updated at all location of where you may have linked (published) your chart at. Such as here... I forgot to add the legend for "USB" and I saved it and it showed up here next time I refresh the page.

First attempt was using powerpoint last night, whilst tired. I have updated today using Visio, and included everything that is usually attached in some way to the network. I finally concede the point that Leisa makes about gadgets and geek gear taking over the house. If you wonder about the WiFi connection into the Skype/IRC bot box - its because thats the only one i need on 24/7 at the moment, and while we are renovating, it occaisionally gets moved around the house out of cable range. For clarity, I have left out the home theater gear hanging off the MCE, and a few other bluetooth phones and headsets, as well as various small peripherals (webcams etc).

The fax is currently connected directly to the PSTN, though I would like to integrate it into Asterisk at some point. The cordless dualphone PSTN ports are directly attached to the PSTN at the moment, but will be connected as per the diagram very very soon. An SPA3102 is on the way, as well as a new (new to me anyway) box coming soon to run some virtual servers (SBS and Linux) under XP. Once this machine is up and running, it will likely make the existing Skype / IRC bot box redundant, and it may be redeployed as another Asterisk box, so that I can have a completely seperate test environment for Asterisk.

Any suggestions or criticisms are welcome!! Sometimes I think about people with PSTN > MODEM > PHONE > PC and nothing else as being quite lucky they are not afflicted with Geek syndrome...

ERROR # 1 - The MFC210c is not a network device, it is in fact USB to the laptop when required, until I install it on one of the fixed boxes and share it across the network.

ERROR # 2 - The Sky decoder is of course not attached to the ethernet, but directly via S-Video to the MCE box. Being attached to the phone line technically makes it part of the 'network' of devices. I am not sure if I can run this through Asterisk or not?

And yes Im sure there are a couple of other errors in there somewhere too. I had no idea it was this complicated till I sat and really thought about it!
