I recently became the IT guy at a remote school with onsite staff. The network setup is a bit messy right now. I am curious about the best standards to use. Below is a map of the current network that provides internet.
As you can see, the network is a bit of a mix of methods. There is one Ethernet cable running underground along the lines. There is a coaxial cable running from the satellite on the roof to the modem located next to the server.
I often run into weak connections further out, especially at 19 and 23 which will drop out for days during sand storms, rain, or snow.
I have heard running dual lines helps. I was also thinking doing something like looping 19 back to the server to make one large circle. This would require a lot of work, but so would digging up the lines that are in place.
A central network location that all lines branch off of might also be an option. I have a lot of Wire.
What are some standards that could accomplish my goal?
