What hardware would you use to have 32 computers connected to a server and to a t one line also. How would you go about tying it all together. The server is a rs 6000

T1 coming in to a Cisco (1700 series), then off to the uplink port on a 3COM, Bay Networks or HP stackable, "managed" switch....then connect the clients either from the patch panel or direct cable to the ports on the managed switch. With the managed switch, you can optionally setup V-Lans to further segment the traffic...depending on your skill level.

Around $900.00 to $1,000.00 for the 1720 series router & around $650.00 each for 2 24 port managed switches. You could spend a little less on a single 48 port switch...but I recommend 2 because if the 48 port switch goes down...then everyone is down...if you use 2x24 port switches and one goes down...then only 1/2 of the people are chewing on you. :) If the 48 port switch goes down...then the VP's are down...in the 2 switch configuration you could move the VP's to the working switch and not miss a beat...with the "higher ups" at least.
