There’s a forum over at www.broadbandreports.com where people post photos and drawings of their home and home-office networks. Some people have some really simple setups, while others have truly sophisticated installations.
I’m sure ours is somewhere in the middle. I posted a drawing over there so I suppose that it only makes sense to post it here as well.
This drawing doesn’t include the Portech MV-370 GSM gateway as that’s brand new. Nor does it include various pieces of gear that come and go for work related projects.
I’m still surprised at how many ports we need on our switches. I never would have guessed that our home would grow to this size, and it shows no signs of getting smaller. The 8 port switch in the house is soon to be replaced with a 16 port model. I’ll be adding more gear to interface the doorbell to the Astlinux server. That may include a SIP door phone if the funds are available.
