by Jkbeach / January 15, 2012 4:52 PM PST

I am in charge now of our computer network, due to a tight budget Im left with finishing what someone else started. Im first wanting to verify if things are correct so far before continuing. This is a small business with 2 locations. 1-office, 2 warehouse. Office has: comcast modem, cisco router, switch, then 3 servers, 5 pc xp and 7, 3 printers LAN 10.10.20.1 Subnet 255.255.255.192 Servers running SBS 2003 SVR 1 DC/DNS/DHCP/Exchange SVR 2 Webserver/WSS 3.0 SVR 3 BDC/BDNS/WSUS Warehouse has: ATT modem, cisco router, 3 pc win 7, 2 printers LAN 192.168.1.1 Subnet 255.255.255.0 There is a vpn tunnel between the 2 cisco routers 1. Is there and reason for the 10.10.x.x address for the office vs 192.168.x.x?? 2. I can map a drive thru the tunnel but cant "see" the network on each side 3. The office network seems very slow, slow to print, slow to browse is there anything I should be looking at 1st

It's more of a Small Business Forum and not heavy on Network

"reason for the 10.10.x.x address for the office vs 192.168.x.x?"

That one can be too easy. If I join two networks I might want to keep the LANs in their own spaces but be able to copy this to that or some other weird procedure. I can't GUESS why they did that but you would sit down with your network designer to go over the new plan.

On item 3, there are MANY articles about that. Here's the most common one I encountered.

I m not n expert with computer hardware networking but you have only 5 pc and Ithink lan printers doesn't takes it place. There must be something wrong about the design in your network. If your network designer cannot fix this problem. It is better not to continue.
