Hello, I am helping someone with a home office network, would appreciate any help or advice you can give. Hardware: -Linksys WRT54GL with Firmware Version: v4.71.1, Hyperwrt 2.1b1 + Thibor15c -Dell Powerconnect 2708 8-Port Gigabit Switch -All Cable will be Cat6 cables Please refer to the attached picture for the setup. Setup Picture Please let me know if the setup is right and will work. I already have a WRT54gl and going to buy a Powerconnect 2708. Connected Port1 of wrt to port1 of 2708, simply to access the internet. I will assign a static IP for the 2708 and turn off DHCP on 2708. The 4 computers connected on the 2708 will be backing up data on the NAS server almost everyday, also the NAS server will be accessed regularly for shared data. My concerns are: 1. what static IP should i assign for 2708, linksys is 192.168.1.1? 2. Since wrt54gl is the one assigning IP addresses will my network slow down because wrt54gl is only capable of 100Mb? I really need the speed of the 2708 gigabit switch due to the constant data transfer between the 4 computer and NAS server on the 2708 switch. 3. Does the RJ45 Modular (plug) matter if one the packaging it says only 10/100? 4. How can I increase security to the network? btw, the wireless on the wrt54gl will be on for 4 laptops Thats all I can think about. Please do question me if you see flaws in the design. Thank you for your time.
