I'm currently mid stream of some building work, which amongst other things, gives me a larger office / PC room.
Since I'm also getting this area electrically rewired, I've decided to properly sort out hard wired access around the house.
I currently use a 4 port WiFi ADSL+2 modem with 4 ports and a 8 port switch. This serves the current room, + one hard wired connection in the 3 beds and living room. I intend on increasing this to 2 ports in the bedrooms, 2 in the living room, 2 in the new TV room and plenty of expansion in the PC room.
I know I could just use a switch, but that would create a bottleneck, which could potentially slow the network down - hence why I think a 16 port ADSL2+ modem would be better.
Anyone know of such a beastie? (I know they are available - but info is thin on the ground!), or would I be better off making use of the 4 port, with extra switch boxes, to "share" the load?
Any pointers appreciated.
