Finally did one phase of redoing my home network.

When I first moved into this place, I ran into a problem where I wasn't able to put all my computer equipment in one room. And, then it was further compounded by the fact that there is only one cable jack.

Though the room where I had intended all the computer equipment to go is where the demarc is located, so it probably would've been possible to add a splitter for the the cable modem there.

But, what I did was reconfigure my Linksys router to do WDS bridging and participate in the WDS bridging I was doing with a pair of Belkin F5D7130s.

So I had the cable modem and a pile of stuff at the front of my living room connected to it...and the Linksys router. My computer with one of the Belkins in the opposite corner of the living room and the other Belkin in my 'computer room'.

The VoIP ATAs at the front of my living room....

And, all was adequate. :lalala:

But due to the SNAFU of getting cable service, I had gotten DSL service and I got out what was my spare Linksys router and set up the 'computer room' with that. So far I've kept the dual gateway home network.... :>>

Hmmm, just thought of one of the reasons to do this….my DVArchive servers on in the ‘computer room’, but can’t serve content for playback on my ReplayTVs due to not enough bandwidth in on the WiFi bridge. (well, it kind of works at first, but any glitch and the ReplayTV will reboot).

Guess now I can do it…and maybe even the MMC server on my Linux box will become accessible.

The only problem is that in the aftermath of the ice storm, I wrote off all the content on my DVArchive server and wiped it…. :..(

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
