Setting up a network

By diazolidineyl ·
Hello everyone I am a junior in highschool and for my networking class we have to map out our own network and provide information about things such as our closets and server o/s

The specifications of the project are pretty broad
- 5 locations (for the backbone nothing less than a t1)
- Each location will have 100 users or a total of 500 users
-Things we must have are Routers, switches, Email server, and a Web server.
-We must also describe the specs of our servers

I don't plan on anyone to do my homework for me, but I personally I have no idea where to start(closest thing I've worked on regarding networks is my home network) so if anyone could mention information of things I could research or have anyone share personal expeirences with their own networks anything pertinant would do.

Sounds Cool.

Are you working within a budget? The reason I ask is that you need to define your overall goal. There are about as many different ways, and costs, to do this as there are servers themselves. Not being a network admin, you may find more detailed help from some other responses, but I like this article,aid,68763,00.asp

decide what you want

i think it's best for you to decide how do you want to connect your PC's. What are the h/wares you need, firewalls etc. reading on network architecture and topologies could help you get into a good start.
