IP Assignment and Server questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was looking for advice on how to redesign my network and what type of servers everyone recommend. I'm not sure if I need Vlans, I was thinking about picking up the Netgear ProSafes Web Unmanaged switch. The idea is to have all rooms have wifi that is on the same network, but not have one router overwhelmed with the amount of data. I have that issue with one of my routers. I'm assuming I'd need several of the same router?
