|I have a small business currently running 6 computers. I have a cable connection through comcast that connects to their box. Out of that box a either-net / cat cable plugs into my 4 port router. 3 ports go to my front counter computers one of which I use as a make shift server to house my quickbooks enterprise solutions main file. This computer has 2 hard drives that mirror each other. The last outlet of the router goes to another router located in the back of my store which feeds my other computers. |
Here are my problems:
1). Wires everywhere
2). When other computers try to access my quickbooks file it must jam up the routers or something because it aborts the quickbooks program on the other computers (not the server). I need this to stop happening.
3). Also it is slow to work with quickbooks on other computers I assume because they are trying to access the file through multiple routers.
Ok so here is what I am looking for some advise on what to buy and how to wire it up. I think I need to switch everything to one fast router but I don't know which one with so many options. Another thought is to put another network card in my server for outgoing and incoming signals.
Any suggestions and or diagrams would be helpful. I do have some money to throw at this problem but don't want to waste it on the wrong stuff.
Also my "server" is just a PC that is fast with extra cooling fans so If I need a proper server let me know I just need to fix this. Its not very productive for my computers to keep loging out my employees.
