  • PROJ EC T 1 Designing a Home Office Network Chris Rowe UTB EDTC 6325 May 11, 2010 Overview This network design is based on an exiting home computer setup that included one Windows desktop and One Windows Laptop. In ad- dition there was a laser printer, color printer and Scanner. The goal was to network the peripherals so that both computers could use them, and thus eliminating the need for a second set of pe- ripherals. This not only saves money but also saves space and increases productivity by having less equipment to maintain.

Total $255.96 Purchasing Justification The main advantage of a home network is the ability to access shared recourses such as Internet, files and printers. In a house with more than one person this allows more than one person to access all these recourses simultaneously. For a person with more than one computer a network allows both computers to be used without having to rewire anything. I chose to buy new equipment because the benefit of support and reliability and warranty far outweighs the cost difference on used hardware of this kind. At a cost of ? (? Hours @ $20/hr.)

  • the increase in productivity is sure to pay itself back. The payback time decrease the more people and shared resources there are. Rowe - Project 1 4
  • Topology and Architecture Justification A peer to peer network is almost always going to be the best choice in a home office network. This is due to the small size of the network and the cost or maintaining a client server net- work. The use of wired and wireless Ethernet based networks has become the defacto standard for almost all networks. In a small home network a simple Star topology is most often used. This works well because a router is often used to connect the local network to the internet. I chose the Netgear ? router because of its cost/performace his- tory and because it has a built in print server. This allows the any computers on the network to print even if all the other com- puters are turned off. Rowe - Project 1 5
