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