Network

All my network is a Gigabit network, i am currently running a BT Bussiness Hub for my routor, i have ordered a Watchguard Firebox x700 that i will be installing Pfsense on. This will be my new routor. 

I have my first Gigabit 16 port switch in my house loft, then the 24 Port Gigabit switch in my Garage (Were the servers are located) 

I have wired my house with CAT5e because i got 2 boxes (305m in each) for £5 from work!! Otherwise i would have spent the extra on CAT6.

Whats Next?

My next update wil be when i get my Watchguard unit should arrive tommorow or wednesday i hope. I will be writing how i installed pfsense and if i had any problems along the way!
