I know most people have a basic home network (Probably just a modem or a modem with a router) but I like looking at pictures of more intricate systems.

Here are a couple pictures of mine

Please note that there is a printer hooked up to the main family computer that does printer sharing for all windows computers

The Family computer and my laptop both run Windows XP Home and the servers run Ubuntu Linux

Computers in my network
Family Computer (Pentium 4 3.2 GHz, 1 Gig Ram)
My Laptop (Acer Aspire 5040)
Ubuntu TeamSpeak Server (Old Pentium II 450 I picked up for 20 bucks)
Going to be File Server (Need to get a few scrap parts soon but it's a pentium II 233)

Also there is an XBOX 360 hooked up

The Networking Stuff
Linksys WRT54GC (Wireless Router)
Dell PowerConnect 2016 (16 port switch)
D-Link DI-604 Router
RCA Modem from my cable compagny (Also VoIP for the house)

Pictures

Linksys on top, followed by the D-Link, then the modem, then the switch

Under the pyramid is my 20 dollar 450 old IBM (built for life :thumbsup:) and beside it is my old 233

P.S. Hoping to pick up a couple more old junkers from friends that bought new computers or maybe picking up a couple more at 20 bucks and having a little bit more fun with them :flowers: ( I got the switch for them :trumpet:)

No pics of mine right now (at work) but I've got...

Motorola Surfboard Cable modem (Comcast)
Linksys BEFW11S4 (simply because it's reliable, wifi is turned off)
Uniden 5 port switch
Netgear WGR614v6 (used as wireless AP, only because it's 802.11g)
then the devices...
Wii (on and off, belongs to a buddy)
my FreeBSD Server (PIII 500, rock solid)
Dell Dimension desktop
2 Dell Inspiron laptops
room-mates custom desktop (video editing machine)
my spare desktop

and then any computer that I happen to be working on at home right then.

A Family Desktop, my laptop and a teamspeak server and an Xbox 360.

I like planning in advance for future upgrades, plus I got the switch for 10 bucks on ebay nothing can beat that price.

I have since replaced the Linksys NR041wm wired router with a Linksys WRT54G Wireless router. My daughter's school provided her with a notebook, and it was either run 50ft of Cat5 or go wifi. Just the excuse I needed to upgrade to wifi.
