I am very much appreciate your time and effort to read my dilemma with my home networking issue.
I wish to create a separate Network with limited (speed) and shared Internet from my exiting Home Network. Some sort of Guest Network. In my case, Guest Wi-Fi Network at Location C with illustration below.
[Illustrated Network Setup]
Location A, B and C are connected with Cat5E Cable and all situated within well below 100m length.
Yellow Line suggested how Location A and B connect.
Red Line suggest 2 Way to connect, either Directly to Main A or Location B.
Location A sited the Main Modem+Router which it connected to phone line.
Location B hosted the second AP Wifi Router, which it was routed through a Gigabit Switch.
Location C is the new Location, in question or dilemma on how to connect effectively with less-cost for a controlled "Guest" Wi-Fi environment - Firewalled Network (VLAN) and Limited Speed.
I consider myself new to this Network Concept, LAN within LAN.
If I am not wrong, in my case, it is known as VLAN. Creating a Virtual LAN inside the main LAN, to ensure limited access and to protect Main LAN from external forces.
Topic: VLAN and Limited Speed at Location C
Before I go through my solution, I had both search at Lowyat and googled for a cost-effective solution.
Some articles/forums adviced for Managed Switch or Related Hardware, Software Solution for a PC-Always-On. Also, I stumbled across this (below) Lowyat Forum Article and lucky, I did.
[quote]Topic: Bandwidth limiting, Which router to get? (Router Configuration)
-> Mostly discussed with QoS feature of a Router, found in TP-Link and Asus Router.[/quote]
Solution B (indicate at the Illustration)
Replaced the Red-Circled Giga Switch (Location B) with Asus Router, with VLAN Capability and Bandwidth Control.
At the same time, remove the WIFI G-Router.
1/ My existing G-Router disable DHCP Server. Devices connected through G-Router, its IP Address are allocated by Main Router at Location A. Shall with new Router Replacement and with VLAN (for Location C), would there be any implication? I want Location B as free as Location A, no limit or VLan. Only at Location C.
2/ My budget for the new Router is around RM300.
The Main Router at Location A has no IP-QoS or similar to allow Bandwidth Control, also its VLan is somewhat useless.
What you all think?
Personally, I felt Solution B is logical and also, Location B is nearer to C as it is located in the middle of A and C.
Nevertheless, I was worried about the complication and I wouldn't want to waste my Ringgit - at the end it did not work.
Please share your opinion. Thanks you.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
