I am after some feedback on my planned home network. While I will cable as much as I can, it will rely on switches due to the difficulty of running cables.
1) Currently I am using a HG659b on VDSL, waiting on Fibre to come in the next year or so. I will look at replacing this with an edgerouter once fibre is installed.
2) I want a managed POE gigabit switch, with 4 POE ports for 2-3 security cameras. I don't think I will need any more than 16 ports total. It will be connected to a 2x 8port dumb switches, which supply the office and living room. A single NVR (single ethernet with no swtich), and 1 RPi running the VPN server will be connected directly. The 2x 8port gigabit switches supply TV's, PC's, home theatre, server, mibox, vero4k and gaming consoles.) I am new to managed swtiches, but want to be able to keep the cameras on their own VLAN. While I may look at getting some dedicated AP's for now I am relying on some bridged routers.
My two dumb switches are TLSG1008D's, which as best I understand it should passthrough the VLAN tagging as they support 15KB jumbo frames.
Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated.
