Router died. Looking for other options.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So... my third router in 5 years decided to kick the bucket. I was considering running a server in place of it. Suggestions are welcome. This is what I have:

Room one: laptop. Wired.
Room two: quad core
Room three: 2 P4s. One is being used as a file/torrent server.
Wireless: a laptop.

I have all of them hard wired right now. I also have a modem (currently connected to only one computer). How would I go about setting this up so that I dont need a router? I have 2 network switches.

Also, I need another 50ft ethernet cable. Any good retailers to find one cheap?



Edit: thank you to the mod who deleted my bump and the following post after it

With wireless on the laptop i think the best way would be with your standard lynksys wrt-54gl with either DD-WRT or Tomato. The 3rd party firmware can let you throttle your torrent traffic when someone else wants the bandwidth and both of them are much more stable than the stock. You can also overclock the router to help with transfers when you have a heavy load.


If you really don't want a router, you'd have to set up dhcp on your server and have another nic plugged into your switch. While it works, and works fairly well, it can be a hassle to set up.

As for the actual configuration, we'd need a little more info on your setup, such as proximity and cable lengths between computers.
I had a wrt54g.... The die quite often for me. I think I can spend $60 better than another one of those.

Here are lengths:
P4s and quad are 50 feet apart. In the basement.
The lappy is 100+ft away in the other end of the house. 150 cable running.

the wireless laptop is centrally located above the P4s on the next level.

My mobo has dual gigabit lan. I was thinking of going gigabit.

Connect the modem to one of the switches then connect to PC's you want. Make sure to leave one port open for the second switch and connect other PC's to that one(second).As far as wireless for your notebook I really can't give advice on that, a router is all I have used to configure wireless,I don't know if a wireless card could be used to transmit a signal or what you would need to do to connect to the server wirelessly.

a WRT54GL is a great router, or you can set up one of the servers with router software (the WRT54GL runs Linux, so you can get anything for it on a normal PC, in fact, I think you can install DD-WRT onto a standard PC).

Google up running a Linux server as a router.

I didn't realize that they are so cheap now... So basically $40 shipped for the wrt54g.

Thats not a bad idea. I have a 1.6ghz celeron laying around that I could use.

Not a bad idea for gigabit. Its probably worth the investment.
all my lines are cat6. Do you know of a place that sells cheap ethernet? I need another 50ft cable.

I think I will put something together with a pc as a router or a dhcp server until I want to spend the money to go gigabit. I will see how i like the pc setup and see if it is good enough.

I hate wireless... but I like it for one of my laptops. Does anyone have a N router? Whats your experience with its performance and range?

if you have couple of NIC you could always put them in one pc and use one of them like a hub put all of them NIC into the pc then go to your network properties page then look for the local area connections like 1,2,3,4 etc.... make sure to have on of the ethernet port hooked from the modem then have all the other pc's hooked to the multiple NIC on that pc then when your at your network properties page high light all the local area connection then right click and click bridge connections basically where the internet is coming in at it will send out the other bridge connections you have did this at a friends house since he could not afford a hub and he had extra pc laying around I got all the NIC from my career center and how I got that idea is when I used to have my pc wireless and had my xbox 360 hooked to my pc and bridge the connection with my xbox 360.

I second that vote, though for the WRT54GL.

I wouldn't hassle with sharing connections unless it is with a firewall/gateway linux distro, it gets kind of ugly compared to a nice DD-WRT flashed WRT54GL.
