I've updated the diagram, with the planned device in red. Any suggestions welcome. The box is real low end, but most of the Linux distros are not too hefty.

Whoa! I LOVE the IBM stuff. too cool.

My home "networking" is in a very sad state now, just a mere EEEpc, 1TB hard drive, old hacked thin-client and an Okta Touch for data access.

Cable modem goes into the primary 8-port gigabit switch. That has an Apple Airport Extreme hanging off it for 802.11n wireless for the other 2 Macbook laptops and performing DHCP/NAT duties, a 4-port 802.11g wireless 4-port router in the lounge for the media PC and a Wii (Wireless for flatmates ipod touch), a Macbook, an Xbox360, the fileserver which has a Linux VM running on it as the DNS/Web Proxy.

Elsewhere in the house is another 8-port gigabit switch with 2 PC's and a PS3 hanging off it, plus yet another wireless router so my 802.11g devices can connect to it.

I thought 2 gigabit switches, 3 wifi points (2 802.11g and 1 802.11n) and an internal DNS/Proxy server was pretty good for a house with only 3 people in it :)

after struggling along with only 3 displays, I've been messing about with Synergy with great results, even made me give a Linux (suse) a decent bash.


leverage the synergy

Or just use Word...?
