what devices/materials do i need to set-up a network for 20 workstation. distances varies from 10 to 30 meters?

if i deploy nt server 4.0 and win98 clients are there any peripherals needed?

my main purpose in connecting these computers is to share one internet account.

Paul,
If you want to share one INET connection you can look at using Proxy server, or another third party app that will mask your internal network. As far as devices, a hub with the appropriate cabling (if all computers are in the same building/Room) will join you all together nicely.

Hello Paul,
In order to set up a network between 20 workstations and a server u may need a hub, & cables(Enhanced CAT 5 will do) & Ethernet card on all systems.
U basically don't need any peripherals but yes to connect to net u will need a modem.In order to share an account, u need a proxy server. U can start by downloading winproxy (trial version) from www.winproxy.com
It's very easy.

Do yourself a favor and look at two products from Artisoft. LANtastic will let you network 20 users comfortably without an NT server. I-Share will allow up to 32 users to share a simultaneous single connection to the net. If there is a workgroup logic to the layout of your network, consider a few switches branching to workgroup hubs for performance improvement.

you need of course 20 computer/20 network cards/network hub with more than 20 port connection/hub cable for every workstation, cable length will depend for each location, each cable needs 2 RJ connectors for PC to hub connection/ 1 fast modem for centralized proxy connection/proxy software from winproxy or cproxy .. whatever your preference but please check if NT has its own proxy software configuration before downloading.

* Configure a unique TCP/IP settings for each workstation.

* Make sure to configure each workstation internet connection to point to the NT server. Please check proxy settings of Internet explorer for each client.
