Question. Why does your work have 4 links coming off of the router instead of having a core switch for inter vlan routing, you can set up vlans really quickly and get a more optimized lan switching network running.

so each network has a broadcast :)

You can configure them with vlans and they will still have the broadcast addresses for each network, as different vlans have different layer 3 networks. Simplifies management by alot.

Well guess it's time for an update. After the renovations, most of the gear got relocated. I've used up around 350ft of UTP cable. Added and removed some devices. Slowly moving over to 1Gbps...

Made sure the crucial parts of the network are not getting congested. As you can see I'm not heavy on WiFi because there are a lot of networks around me and almost every channel has around 5 networks within the 50-80dB range. The network is now IPv6 enabled, however I won't see ISP side IPv6 for a few years...

 

Side Note: The GS116 is generating a LOT of heat, I guess the form factor has it's flaws.

If its on cisco equipment the config on the router should look something like this

int gi0/0

no shutdown

int gi0/0.10

encap dot1q (Vlan #)

ip addr 192.168.10.1 255.255.255.0

and on the switch you need to make sure you trunk the interface going to the router

int gi0/0

no switchport access

switchport mode trunk

 

If you have portfast enable on that interface before you trunk it be sure to remove the port fast as it wont form the trunk properly.

 

If you need some help on figuring out the config PM me and I can help you mock it up before implementing it.

  • All the wired connections are Gigabit Ethernet with the exception of the printers (10/100).
  • The NAS has two lines to the switch because it uses Link Aggregation to achieve faster throughput
  • Windows Server serves RADIUS, Active Directory, Web and WSUS
  • OSX Server serves caching for OSX and iOS devices, Open Directory, Netinstall, Wiki and Xcode Server
  • DNS, DHCP, NAT is Handled by the Untangle NGFW
  • Untangle NGFW also runs Web and Virus Filtering as well as Web Caching, Application Control, Bandwidth Control (QOS Stuff), IPS, Ad Blocking as well as logging traffic.
  • There are Three VLANs: (Untagged) 1, 20 and 30

Black: WAN/Coaxial Cables from ISP to modem then modem to router; 10/100 LAN cables

Blue: Wireless 802.11 b/g/n connectivity

Green: Wireless 802.11 a/n connectivity

Red: LAN 10/100/1000 connectivity with internet data carried to secondary router.

I think this is a bare bones network. 

NOTE: My PC's gigabit ethernet ports are bridged and run on 2 separate static IP's but the same DNS server. This is so that devices connected to the secondary router, have internet access. The reason for the 2 static IP's are for access to maintenance on both routers. Took about 3 hours to get the secondary router to work.

EDIT: the secondary router's internet connectivity is a very homebrew solution

I don't know much about networks because I haven't studied it in college but I set up my home network with these settings as drawn in CAD. I have a router that's connected to the modem on one side of the house and then I have an ethernet cable running from that router to a second router in the center of the house in bridge mode. This creates 2 separate networks on one modem and allows for better wireless connectivity for people on the otherside of the house. It also helps with gaming lag.

I'm just dipping my toes into the networking world (my experience up to this point is simple WiFi networks with a sub-par company when I was a kid), so I have a question that might be aimed more at folks running networks larger than an enthusiast's home network.

How in-depth do you get when you're keeping track of IP addresses on your network? I know I keep track of numbers much more easily with charts and diagrams. If i were managing a hypothetical network, I can't help but feel like I would keep a list of the IPs of routers and switches, and just label each individual device to reference when an issue crops up with that particular device.

I guess what my question actually is, is what is best common practice for cataloging IP addresses on a network?

At the school I work at, we keep a simple excel spreadsheet of networking devices (Switches, routers, cctv cams and access points.).

 

Alternatively you can setup reservations on your DHCP server (Providing you run your own) this would allow you to view which IP is assigned to which device. You can setup notes for each DHCP reservation / filter if you are using them, then when it comes to finding a switch we can look at "room21" then find its assigned IP address. There are also many external tools you could use, but I won't cover them here. (To many to list  :P )

 

The above example was running windows server in case anyone was wondering. I guess that answers how in depth we go, basically an excel sheet with notes assigned to each device in DHCP, Excluding desktops, laptops etc, we only write notes with the networks components.

IPAM is what most organizations use to manage IP addresses. Often times the IPAM solution is connected to the DHCP and DNS servers in order to coordinate this info. A great home solution is to use something like PHPiPam to manage it. You will need a WAMP or LAMP solution. This particular software can scan your subnets and find devices.

Well for me personally and practices that my company does. I keep a backup of every device that our company manages. IE running configs, system inventory, vlan information. and a visio diagram of every device and what ports/speed they are connected at. You can also have snmp that will send reports about what you set up for it to report back to a central server that will send email alerts based on the severity level of what you want to monitor. We do this in case a device were to fail we can get them back up and running next day as well as having early alerts for potential device failures.

So far I have not seen anyone...

  • ... gave publicly resolvable (accessibility optional) DNS names to their networks and equipment,
  • ... use equipment that is custom built or developed in house, or
  • ... manage multiple networks and make them all directly accessible internally.
So here is my four interconnected, partially publicly resolvable DNS-named networks.

 

Here is a global map of all four networks (Click image to enlarge):

network-global-map-1024x647.png

I cannot locate the rented virtual private server precisely so it is represented as connected directly to Internet. All three other networks are subscribers of China Telecom Shanghai Network so represented as such. CT SH is part if Internet but the link is congested and bottlenecking my online experience now.

 

The following map is my home network at in.maxchan.info. The two remainder networks are suffering from technical difficulties now and I don't have the time to fix yet. I will update this post once it is fixed.

home-network-map1-1024x616.png

Here are the devices that is in this network, outside my main gateway. This part of network's FQDNs are just identifiers, and are not actually resolvable or accessible:

  • pon.isi.maxchan.info: EPON ONU supplied my ISP.
  • switch.isi.maxchan.info: TP-link TL-SG1005 Gigabit switch.
  • itv-bridge.isi.maxchan.info: ZTE home gateway supplied by my ISP.

    Here is a bit history of why I have essentially bypassed all ISP-supplied equipment but they are still hanging in my network: this home gateway was the ISP-designated home gateway but it imposed limitations to my network to 4 connected devices maximum, and bottlenecked the traffic. Moreover, this home gateway was caught eavesdropping on me. However without this device the IPTV won't work. So I gave it a hack to disable its own PPPoE dialup and used it only as a IPTV bridge.

  • iptv.isi.maxchan.info: IPTV set top box.

This thread is meant to show us your network layout.

 

Some rules

  • You must have a proper network diagram; Something made in Microsoft Visio, Gliffy (Free) or something similar.
  • No all-in-one boxes; There is not much to show off if your network only has 1 networking device.
  • It must be your own network; Don't try to impress by showing off a corporate network, we are looking for consumer networks :D

 

 

 

I will start off with showing my home network

Home Network Setup

 
i figured id upload my network, but not super complex, I run part of my business at home.
Created in packet tracer so everything is Cisco, i don't own that much Cisco stuff i tried to find the closest object possible, i also included my hosted dedicated server and its VM's
I run 3 separate networks at home:
Blue - 192.168.1.x
Green - 192.168.2.x
Yellow - 10.1.1.x
 
Blue and Yellow are both physical networks, and green is a virtual switch for my test Domain Controller.
Blue is my main network and Yellow is for guest wifi and client PC's
 
My Xeon Server run 9 VM's (Maroon box)
-Myob Server
-PBX Server
-WDS (blue)
-Ghost (wds server for yellow)
-DC Server and 2 Test VMs
-Windows 10 Test VM
-Redundant Webserver (server-PT)
My hosted server also runs 6 VM's pretty simple:
Gigabit Internet, 32gb ram, dual xeon CPU. Stored in Canada
-Personal Server (Webserver, teamspeak, blog, VPN etc)
-Exchange server for my personal and business email
-Webserver for clients
-VPS that i have rented out to a mate
-FTP Server
-Windows 10 Remote Workstation
Synology Nas 
-Personal File & Cloud Server
-SQL server for kodi (Xbmc) for the PC, HTPC(nuc), Shield
-Intranet site
-download station from my put io account
My PFsense 6 port Firewall is my dhcp/dns server for blue and yellow 
and my WAPs are Asus something or rather not the WRT's
PFsense is also my cache server

My current network is just a Modem/Router combo (ActionTek PK5000) from CenturyLink. (Our service is 12mbps down, 7mbps up rarely get that over Wifi (well at least upload))

 

Though next year I want to upgrade our home network to 802.11ac and 802.11n, I also want to build a File Server and also be able to use that server to download and upload things without occupying a regular computer because after it finishes downloading I can then put that download into my scratch file and then pull that download off the server and on to the PC.

The blue bordered and shadowed boxes are rooms (not representative of their size)

The dashed lines are Wifi, the solid lines are Cat6 ethernet, the solid line with a rhombus/diamond is the RJ11 cable that goes from the wall RJ11 jack into the modem's RJ11 jack.

My Ultimate Network Layout:

 

ISP Modem (bridged mode) ------ Linksys Router(I would prefer not releasing the model).

 

Note however, I do have a hard drive plugged into my router, and I used to have two routers.  One for guests and a file server and one just for my household.  

 

I think its more that I just have no need for a complex network layout.  But, still.  It would be awesome to set one up sometime.

Are plans for upcoming networking setups allowed?  :ph34r:

My home network has never need anything surprising, but now that we're in a new house, I do plan on getting a decent upgrade.

This is my current layout:

I know, not much. But hopefully in the next month-or-two our fibre connection can finally be finished. This is what it was like before we moved house, and what it'll look like when fibre is installed:

As you can see, we rely a lot on WiFi, which myself and my brother personally hate due to reliability issues. So I have been looking into wiring our rooms up with ethernet, and since I'll be having my own network separate to the rest of the household I have planned out what I aim to have it look like:

The main idea of this plan is to use WiFi primarily for a redundancy connection than relying on it to supply the whole household. As for the actual components, I have no specifications in mind as of yet, as I'll require more research beforehand, perhaps looking at purchasing second-hand for the server/server-side switch (I'm open to suggestions though...).
