I always seem to have networking issues and I need to settle them. I think I get confused with routers, hubs, switches and the DHCP stuff. I currently have a fios router, an time machine (that serves as my wireless access point) and a few other random wireless AP to boost the signal around the house. I have my fios router handing out ips (I think) and it only has four ports so I have some servers plugged into it (unraid being one) and some into the time machine. Sometimes i get ip conflicts when I open my computer and it wont connect to the internet. Should I get a nice switch and use that for everything? How would the Time Machine and fios router work with that? Thanks.
