How can I build a subnet for my network

by andrewgomes / June 13, 2014 2:05 AM PDT

I've recently moved home so I've decided to "build" a better home network since the other cable provider I had only gave me problems.

I run a home business so I have three servers
A Active Directory AD, with DNS, DHCP, a CentOS with Apache and MySQL, and a mail server (I have a dedicated IP so I can run a mailserver without a problem). I want to create a subnet so I can put the client computers on it and leave the servers on the main network 10.0.1.X and the clients on the 10.0.2.X

I want to the clients to be able to connect to the servers so they can login to the AD.

I have two routers one the cable provider gave me, and another router I bought and flashed it with DD-WRT this router is a wireless router.

Can someone help me out or tell me how I can achive this?

I made a diagram to see what I mean

Since we have "switched" hubs wouldn't you be working hard with no visible payoff?

That is, given you know networking, why would you do this today?

So I can keep clients on a subnetwork and servers on the other....

Which is moot on a switched hub.

I fear you are reading from some old text book. That is, you could do this, but then given how a switched hub works you would see no gain for your efforts. Your post and reply tells me you need more reading and classes on today's gear.

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?
