Hi folks. Howdy.

I've just finished with the purchase of my new apartment. I have started with the flooring & interior civil work for now.

I need to plan the electrical wiring of my new house. The house includes four bedrooms & two living rooms. I need all rooms to have a broadband connection that can used for accessing by plugging a laptop. One bedroom would have a desktop. There shall be two broadband connections provided by the local cable operator. I need these connections to be accessible in all 4 bedrooms by means of an ethernet cable & in the 2 living rooms (one above the other, separated by a floor) by Wi-Fi. I plan to keep two Wi-Fi routers respectively in the living rooms for wireless access.

To begin with, what sort of cables should be used to distribute the broadbands to all rooms? Secondly what hardware would be best for me wherein the two broadband connections (from the cable operator) would be plugged in, which in turn would be distributed to all rooms? By saying hardware, I mean a gadget similar in lines of an EPABX system that distributes one or more telephone lines to multiple locations. Here instead of telephone its broadband.

I also wish to have site filters, parental controls & the provision to block internet access to any room at anytime.

Please guide me here. Thanks.

as i said most of the good zytel modems allow for a backup wan line, you basically need one of them and another modem that automatically logs in on the modem side and gets an ip from dhcp on the lan side

you the zytel where the backup wan line is (ie ip address ) and if the line drops it reroutes packets, note that this can be a BAD thing with long running sessions as your external IP address will change meaning things like msn, yahoo chat, ssh, skype and ongoing SIP calls will drop

in the case of ssh once the primary line comes back up as long as you didnt close the sesion all will resumae as nothing happened but its best not to rely on that
