Well after many weeks of procrastination i've started the business plan to rule them all . I have got pricing for computers etc, and am starting my layout planning.
However, not being the best networker (Dam i shouldn't have missed so much OC ) I'm not sure what exactly I'll need for an internet cafe network.
Will I need a server? Can i just run a Star Topology network. That way i wouldn't need a server and can just run maintenance tasks manually.
I know i need some type of Hub and think a switch would be appropriate, perhaps a "LAYER 2 SWITCHE - UNMANAGED"? (BTW what is unmanaged?)
Any suggestions for a ISP? I was looking at a 3Gb 4mb line from Web-Africa to start, we can always top up when necessary.
I have planned to use Dynasoft SurfShop for management, but, if anyone has any other suggestions I'm all ears.
