Everyone thanks for the quick replies.  I think where I went wrong is where I was using the WAN port on the router perhaps. 

I'm assuming that using option 2 would still allow me to use the wireless router as an access point.  It would just recognize the cone on a LAN port and direct internet traffic via that direction?

Ok, thats what I wanted to hear.  I want to stream video to all over the house and I would have at least upgraded to the 512 ram for video...  I am still waiting about the cost to upgrade the units.

What do the units with the C7 processor run?

any updates?

I contacted the company a week or two ago and they suggested that I try the 6030P

"is our fanless unit with PXe software.  This unit costs $199 for 128 RAM.  I can see what the cost would be for 256, 512 or 1 gig RAM.  Let me know if you would like these quotes.  If you looks at he specs for the 6030 series in the attachment I sent you in the previous email, it will have the same specs as these, only differences being the software and flash/RAM."

I haven't inquired further.. but if you got one for 139$ that works I would love to hear about it.

I intend to have 3 MDs (at this time) and it made sense to me that I wouldn't need a switch... however I 2nd guessed myself upon reading through the forums.

There are enough ports on the router to use it for everything.

I lost connectivity on the laptops when the laptop rebooted, I did not reboot the core.  I did not do any testing or look to the cause (I had already been working with it for about 5 hours and I had hit my limit)

Theoretically this setup should work right?
Modem --> LinuxMCE-->Wireless Router(DHCP off)--> Diskless MCE
                                                                   --> Wireless Laptops

Is there anything special i need to do to ensure connectivity after a reboot? manually configure the ips and dns on the laptops?

Ok, I have been reading posts here for weeks now and I am finally getting my setup close to how it needs to be...

My question, and i didn't see an appropriate one throughout my searching, is about how to setup my networking.

What I have:
two network cards in the core; one on the mobo as well as a gigabit NIC.
modem from cable company
wireless router (w/DHCP turned off)

I am curious about the best way to set up to ensure i can network boot and still have wireless acesss throughout my place.

I am thinking that these are my options... but let me know if there are better routes to take.

Option 1
Modem-->Wireless Router(DHCP off) -->Linux MCE    --> Switch --> Diskless MCEs
                                                 -->Wireless Laptops

Option 2
Modem-->Linux MCE --> Switch --> Diskless MCEs
                                            --> Wireless Router (DHCP off)

Last night I had the setup:

Modem --> LinuxMCE-->Wireless Router(DHCP off)--> Diskless MCE
                                                                   --> Wireless Laptops

and it worked (internet connectivity to everything) however upon a reboot i lost connectivity to the laptops... and through reading the posts it seems that I needed a switch in my setup... so now I am asking you all for advice...

Thanks in advance
