hello im planning on setting up an internet cafe in cebu this coming december. i was just wondering if anyone could give me advice of what hardware(s) i should use to connect the computers to the internet. Which setup would be better/smoother for destributing the dsl bandwidth to 16 pcs (mainly focusing on internet gaming):
- 16 port router
- 4 port router + 3x 5 port switch/hub
- 2-4 port router + 16 port switch/hub

My main focus is connectivity to the internet. I want costumers who wants to use the internet for research to go onto websites with ease when most of my bandwidth is occupied with internet gaming.

Thanks in advance.

1 router and a 16 port switch would be fine.. kung kaya ng budget ang 24port switch, better para me ceiling ka if you need to add more pc.

Same suggestion as with SIr uveenhacked.

Just get a 16-port switch first. Your DSL provider may supply you with a modem/router.

Is there a 16-port router??

hi mate,what do you mean by faster?by lan or by internet?
on lan concern, that depends on the termination of your utp cable,if you have a 1GigaLAn switch it should be much faster(much expensive than 10/100mbps switch)
need mo lang router hardware if you have to route/distribute/spread/share your internet to other client pc's,routers have their own respective features,if your router have a QOS (Quality of Service)feature,this should shape up your internet.

sir, AFAIK hindi naman need ng gigalan switch or CAT5e or CAT6 na UTP wire para maging smooth ang DOTA kahit yung 100MB lang na connection will do and if you are into diskless then gigalan ang recommended na gamitin.
