Default Next Question. Routers and switches.

I am going to dump the ICS Server and run the switch into the router. My question is if the server is going to cause a bottleneck if it is pulling down large files and trunking the LAN on the same cable. A single aggregate connection is going to be a PITA. So are multiple routers.

The only reason for the ISC was to create a single point of entry for the WAN and the server security suite was protecting all the client machines instead of having their own software installed. The router being put in place mitigates a lot of this.

I have 2 modems and enough WAN bandwidth to take over the place. Only one is being utilized right now.
There are 4 clients going into a switch and thier printers. And one server. If I put two routers than I have a public and private area, right?

Anything else I might need to know?

If you really want a public and private area...might be worth looking into a firewall. then you can have a public (outside) area, a private (inside) area, and a DMZ. This way nothing from the outside network can touch anything from the inside network...has to use tools in the DMZ. Most firewalls can serve as a router as well.

Might not have answered the real question but I think I missed out on the original discussion.

Ok. The changes went as planned. Well another router would be cheaper than a firewall appliance, right? So now I have four possible subnet's ,right? Or 8. I need to build a new subnet with it's own switch for the DMZ computers, right?
