Network Parts:
DI-524 Wireless Router 54Mb/s
Server Computer (Not Wireless) Has two 100Mb/s Ethernet Cards
Client Computers (All wireless)
Cable modem

Hi, i would like your advice on my proposed new home network setup.

I have a Cable modem which connects directly to the server via a 100Mb/s UTP cable to the first ethernet card. The server has a firewall that will protect the client computers and itself. The server also acts as a print server and a file server. The second ethernet card (on the server) connects to the DI-524 Wireless Router on one of its WLAN sockets using a seperate 100Mb/s UTP cable. Once the router is configured, the wireless client computers should be able to access the server's services plus access the internet going through the servers firewall.

So my main question is put simply, will everything work?

I am currently a little bit concernd about whether the wireless client computers can get internet access.

Thanks buddy! :whistling:
