Hi Guys

 

Thought I would post a few photos and maybe get others to add a few of there own, This is my current setup.

 

Iam running Windows Server 12 R2 Essentials with DHCP, DNS, WDS, I have just installed and setup a second server running Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard with IIS running and hosting my partners bussiness site.

 

I have a wireless router acting as a wireless extender into the back of the house, about to change service provider and will have a spare one for upstairs, triangle formation for maximum range, all routers / Wireless AP's are N - G and A enabled.

 

Iam about to take delivery of my new firewall in the coming days so I will update with addtional photos.

 

I would like to see other setups and configurations, feel free to add to the list new pics of your equipment.

 

Enjoy

Well, actually you are.  You are not wired directly to the switch connected to the router.  I mean it works, but the read times form the server could be bad.

Ahh sorry heads up my backside, Yes as a temp messure as i had to move my switch today, Waiting on the firewall arriving, Going to connect them to it directly, and run a feed out of the firewall to the wireless AP.

I recommend you connect everything to the switch rather than the router/firewall. I would only have 2 connections to the router/firewall, 1 to the switch and 1 to your ISPs modem (or the cable coming from your ISP if the router/firewall is both the firewall and modem).
