In my house, we have a lot of CAT5 outlets and my dad's and my computer running on the network 24/7. We just recently had a lot of trouble with the router and our DSL connection and it flat boggled me. We ended up ditching our Linksys router and going with a new D-Link. And now we had to switch back to the Linksys and made the D-Link a switch. And now the DHCP is all messed up even though both of the computers have the same settings. What other ways can we network the house to make it more rock solid and dependable? My dad wants to create a webserver firewalled and everything but I feel that the DSL connection would slow down too much and it would become extremely laggy. Thus forcing us to upgrade to the 3 mbps DSL. Not that I'm complaining but even that would slow down and were back to where we started. Any suggestions? I've been able to get the network back up and running all the time it just takes time and gets very tiresome. Any help would be appreciated.
