I'm new here and wanted to get some information from you all who may have some more experience than I do.
We are currently working on setting up a network for our new retail business.
The setup will consist of either cable internet or dsl.
I currently have a brand new dell x1052 switch which I know is a Layer 2 switch.
We will be setting up a 16ch Lorex nvr system, which has all of its own poe ports in the nvr and only will be connection the ethernet to our switch. For the retail side we are looking into running 4 of the Windows PiPO x10 systems the models that have ethernet built into the unit. We also will have 2 standard desktop pc's running in the back. I'm looking at also putting in a ubiquiti wireless AP. I am also considering adding a Dell poweredge R710 server as I have a good deal offered to me on it.
My set up I would like to run is to have all of the windows PiPOS on their own vlan, the camera system on its own vlan, v lan to the wireless AP, and a seperate vLan for the 2 computers in the back.
To use this same setup would it be better to just invest in a router as needed for the layer 2 switch or should i buy a layer 3 switch?
If I can stick with using the router configuration which router would be good for this set up?
Again this is just my idea if there is better options or any better set ups please let me know.
