Looking for a little guidance.
I am trying to set up a network at an apartment building. cat5 ran to 1 location with a cable connection coming in (roughly 35x8 with 16 static ip's).
We want to provide each tenant with their own router pre-configured in "client-mode" with a both a static wan(through the isp) and on the network.
I imagined this:
cable modem --> router(to handle distribution of isp ip's and qos) --> managed switch (setting up vlans to separate network traffic).
Does this sound like a feasible plan, and if so, does anyone have a specific router/switch combination they'd suggest? I've been looking in to sonicwall and hp, but I don't really know too much about this topic..
