I have to remake a lan network and i need help. Sorry for my English but i am from greece so the writing isn't very good

i have 27 pcs and 1 server and i want to make a lan network with 2 internet lines . the problem is that i separate these pcs in 4 tables

table 1 .....12 pcs
table 2 .....8 pcs
table 3 .....4 pcs
table 4 .....3 pcs and 1 server

each table must have its own switch/router?
how will i connect all switces/routers together?
how will i share the 2 internet lines in the 27 pcs?

If you want to use two routers connected to two separate Internet connections, you should creating two separate networks.

The result would be that not every computer can see the server.

The only way around that which is a lot of work and there is no flexibility.

The reason I proposed two switches on table1 and table2 is that two 8-port switches are cheaper than one 16-port switch.

Connect the switches on table1 to router1 and the other switches from table2, table3, and table4 to router2.

hope your server has two network cards, connect one to each of the two networks (table1 and table4). If not add one so you can share files from the server.

If you have wireless routers, make sure you change the router password and set the wireless security. By default the wireless is enabled and unsecured (accessible to everybody).
