    Well i wanted to connect around 20 computers to a local LAN that would then be connected to the main server and finally to the Internet. I am new to this stuff so dont have any idea as what to do.
    Do i use routers or combination of router and switches.
    Do I connect the computers wirelessly to the router or if not since most routers have only four ethernet ports than what should i do, if i want to connect the computer via ethernet cable. Please give detail of both options.
    If i am using a private address say, how do i make an addressing scheme for the LAN for each PC.
    thanks in advance, any help will be apprciated.

    Sounds like a homework assignment. If it is, pay attention in class and this stuff will be easy. :)
