Can anybody help or point me in the direction of some resources about how to set up small to medium sized networks. Somewhere that'll give you an idea of what to put on your 'to do' list so to speak.

Thanks

I THINK he asked most of the right questions - I could add (maybe) budget?

Thanks for all the replies...i'll look in to that google link when i get home.

The point of this network could vary as it depends on what the customer wants and therefore could be any size and with many different requirements. Im really just after some advice or a guide on what things i should be thinking about and what is involved, such as if i was to set up a network what OS's are best, what specs would be advisable for a server etc etc.

Hope that makes things a bit clearer.

nope...

way to many variables... WAY too many.

networks are very individual things, changing greatly from one to the next as requirements and budget and such change.
