I need a bit of help! I would like to set up a basic home network with three or possibly four PCs. Does anyone know of a good internet resource with all the information to help me set this up? (I am a numpty, so no long words)
Would people recommend using a dedicated file server or Network Attached Storage?
My plan would be something like this:
Main Work PC (in the living room, so I don't want it on all the time)
Media Centre PC (under the telly playing Blu-Ray, iPlayer, digital media etc.)
The obvious choice would be to use the Main PC as a file server, but it lives in the front room and it quite noisy, so I need a 4th device tucked away in the spare room - either NAS or a low powered PC.
Any advice greatly appreciated!
