I am trying to help someone who has IBurst setup a small network.
I have read many of the posts as well as done Google searches, but I want to be 100% before I continue, so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
They have a Desktop User Terminal - Similar to the one located @ this URL - http://www.iburst.co.za/neuvo.aspx?l...upport_drivers
- They have two desktops & one laptop.
- Each of the desktops are located in different parts of the house.
- Currenty, there is an external aerial connected to the Desktop User Terminal which in turn connects to one of the workstations via a USB cable.
My plan was to connect the IBurst Desktop User Terminal to a network switch via an ethernet cable & also connect the workstation to the switch.
My next step would be to connect another ethernet cable to the switch & run it through the roof, to where the other workstation is located. This is about 20 meters away.
On that side, I want to setup a wireless router & connect the other end of the 20m cable to the router.
Finally, I will setup wireless access so that the person with the laptop can access the network from the far side of the house.
I am familiar with this part of the setup.
My questions, since I can't seem to download a manual for the IBurst device & am not really familiar with the IBurst device are the following:
- Is it possible to enable Internet access for all workstations using this method?!?
- Can I route traffic to the IBurst device like a gateway, so that everyone has Internet access?!?
- Can the LAN port on the IBurst device be configured with an IP Address?!?
- Or do I have to enable Windows Internet Sharing on the workstation & leave the IBurst device connected via USB cable to enable everyone to have Internet access?!? This wouldn't be ideal since that workstation would have to be on for everyone to have Internet access.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!?!
