What did you make this in???

Looks to me like Visio 2013

The Mikrotik RB2011 handles firewalling, routing, NAT, DNS and WiFi access point management.

 

Remote VPN access is handled by the Mikrotik hEX Gr3 (for its AES hardware acceleration). It easily pushes 100+ Mbps over IPSEC (quite an achievement considering the price point of this device).


eth0 is life.

That setup is insane for a home! How's the multigigabit wifi and the controller in the 3850? did you get the switch and the AP's from work?

It's great, the only thing I forgot to include in there was the 2504 WLC which I'm using for now just because the latest 3850 software doesn't have support for the 3802 APs yet. I think that's coming in April or June. We somehow ended up with a couple extra 3850 switches and 2 boxes of 10 APs instead of 2 single APs which we don't need so they let me bring one of the switches and two of the APs home.

First post here :)

I figured I'd finally join here after watching lots of the videos on YouTube.

I wasn't expecting to find a networking section here and other network/server enthusiasts, but this is exactly what I was hoping for!

 

I'm a network engineer by trade (CCNP R+S so far) so thankfully I get to put my hands on all sorts of interesting toys and they're happy for me to borrow hardware to test at home.

I can't be arsed to make a diagram as lovely as some of the ones on here, but here's a general overview of my house.

 

I don't run a VMWare lab anymore and no fancy storage, fibre or 10gbit networking at home - network is designed to be low power and low noise

 

Gateway used to be a combo of Meraki gear (MS220-8P, MR32 and MX64) and a Cisco 2702 AP (best AP I've owned to date, iperf speeds were balls to the walls fast) but we've been trialing some of the Ubiquiti kit in work as we'd like to move away from HP and Cisco and it's so cheap that general enthusiasts aren't priced out. I find some of their kit limited in its capabilities but it's amazing value. I don't know how Ubiquiti make money.

 

Domain controller is doing the usual DNS, RADIUS, SFTP, AD, yadda yadda.

Network in the 10.0.0.x/24 range, personal wifi authenticated via 802.1x, guest network for peasants on seperate vlan, Cat5e all over the house, dedicated switch ports VLAN'd off so I can plug straight into work, NAS is fast enough for Plex transcoding.

 

Nothing fancy tbh.

 

Next step is to swap out the old HP 2520 and Ubiquiti switch and get some layer-3 hardware in there and at least get some OSPF goodness throughout the house :D

And here's my network setup. In the lowerright corner is shown what every wire is. Wireless devices are phones, tablets and laptops and are not shown. Wires running through rooms to other rooms are actually running through those rooms in real life. Wires running around boxes are running through walls.

 

I also didn't display the Unifi Cloud Key which is connected to the TP-Link switch in the network closet.

That's awesome Zandor300.

 

I whipped this one up to give people an idea of what's what here. Not shown are the wireless devices and I've omitted a few other things. The backup AP is to give laptop users who are going to be outside for a while a decent connection speed. I'd like to buy another one or two Unifi APs and a controller but seeing as it's a family residence we all paid towards the initial setup of this new network when our FTTH was installed.

If I had the money I'd like to replace the cables at home with shielded Cat5e at the minimum and re-lay the existing runs but I don't and quite frankly I can't be bothered with actually doing it. It all works well enough for what we need even if I'd like to get maximum use of the internet speed over Wi-Fi.591ddeb1a74e9_ScreenShot2017-05-18at5_53_27PM.png.8d4ae06e64b0a4908a4afb27e65a9ed5.png

Here is mine. I did not try to to make the diagram look pretty so don't complain :)

What's with the connection from the modem to the Switch in the lower right? Is that for a VOIP phone system? How do the phones actually connect, is there a separate VLAN, VPN/tunnel, or separate public IP for them? Also what's the shell/console icon between your PC and the hypervisor server represent?

How do you run the Cisco 3725 non-stop. Isn't it very loud and hot? and guzzles your power bill like crazy. I think that the power savings would easily justify a migration to something like a Cisco 1921 which is faster, smaller, quieter and runs a newer version of IOS (version 15).

- Nvidia Titan Xp - 1TB Samsung 960 Evo SSD - Corsair AX860i Power Supply

The branched connection is our 'second' network. The first one is mine, the second is the families. The Shell console shows that my computer and the server have direct SSH access to each other; also, you are correct on the phone system, separate public IP.

Most of the gear is stored in the crawl space. I have considered the 1921 and am planning to upgrade in the near future.

A lot of very nice networking setups here:)

 

Here's mine:

 

First time I did a network topology with Libre Office so not as clean as I wanted...

595f7a5a595e8_HomeNetworkTopology.thumb.jpg.2112c170bf4d1571ce3a848e7a8fb0e8.jpg

So from my ISP I get 100Mb/s download and 30Mb/s upload.

They provided a router but I just use it as bridge to my TP Link TL-ER6020 router, configured with no-ip for remote connections.

Windows 10 server and OMV File server are connected in 10Gb/s SFP+ to the central DGS 1510-20 switch.

The VM server is connected with 3 1Gb links to a DGS 1210-16 switch.

The other members of the network are my girlfriend's laptop (an Asus something, just can't remember it right now), my laptop (Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook S7210), an all-in-one HP 6500a printer/fax and my good old HTPC.

The servers, switches and router are racked in an 42U open cabinet so the setup is not very clean for now.

This is my current home network, though it's still a work in progress.  Diagram is drawn using Visio.

I love how you named your computers: Goliath, Orion, Oceanus, and Upstairs.

Upstairs is for the wireless AP :D

I try to name everything after Greek Titans for consistency.

Here is an updated topology of mine. I have other people connecting to my network and I am using BGP for my routing protocol. I am assigning autonomous systems to them.

Looks cool, but this layout sharing topic is supposed to be home networks - I have a hard time believing that this is your home network, and if it is, why? (serious question, not sarcastic)

It is my home network and I have some friends connecting to me via GRE. The third octet in my IP addresses correlate with the VLAN they are on. To give an example 172.16.10.0/24 is my network for all my PCs and main wireless devices. .20.0/24 is my phone VLAN, .30.0 is my server VLAN, .40.0/24 is my wireless management for all my controllers for my wireless lab. .75.0/24 is for my console, .100.0/24 is for my guests who come to my house.

 

 

 

I purchased my routers off of eBay.

 

 

I have hot standby router protocol running in my home network so that I have 99.9% uptime.

 

The routers were fairly cheap on eBay.

 

To be simple, the network is really only two routers with multiple sub interfaces on them and two routers on a stick.

So.... based on this diagram, it looks like your main PC is acting as either a switch or router? Why?
