My wife and I are building a house and setting up a computer room with a "smart panel." All ethernet, phone and cable runs will be tied back to this panel. I am unsure what networking equipment to go with for my needs, I have only dealt with mid-high end consumer grade Wi-Fi routers.
My thought was to have a professional grade router/firewall to split the main ethernet connection from my cable modem and to act as the network hub for the house. I'd go with consumer grade switches in each room to split further. I'd either go with a decent dual band wireless router in the master closet (wireless hub of the house) or maybe multiple mid-grade single band routers w/switch to split.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
Computer room smart panel - Motorolo SB61B1 w/Comcast 100Mb service | 8 x Cat 5e out to other rooms (need router/switch/firewall)
Computer room other- 3 x Cat 5e w/wall plate (1 computer at each port, 4+ port switch needed on one port)
Master Bedroom - 1 x Cat 5e w/wall plate (4+ port switch needed)
Second Bedroom - 1 x Cat 5e w/wall plate
Livingroom - 1 x Cat 5e w/wall plate (8+ port switch needed)
Kitchen - 1 x Cat 5e w/wall plate (open/wont be used often)
Master Closet - 1 x Cat 5e w/wall plate (Wi-Fi Router)
Thanks for any help!!!
