Hello Friends

I am planning to buy Switches and need some expertise.

The plan is as follows

2 or 3 Internet Providers Cables goes in to  >>> Load Balancer  >>> VPN/Firewall Router >>>  Main Switch >>> Each cable from it goes to another Switch (which is mounted on the rack, that has 8 Rigs)


Internet Load Balancer


I am planning to go with PEPLINK Brand maybe 305 or 380. Or should i chose the lower models. Or any other brand you recommend


VPN/Firewall Router

Please suggest brand


Main Switch (Which of the below options is best) - Is Managed Switch better or Un Managed Switch ?

TP LINK  -  T2600G-28TS   -  Managed Switch
TP LINK  -  T2700G-28TQ   -  Managed Switch
TP LINK  -  T2600G-28MPS  - Managed Switch

DLink    -   DGS-3120-24PC  - Managed Switch
DLink    -   DGS-3120-24TC  - Managed Switch

From the above which one is the best option for the MAIN SWITCH


Switches on Racks (each rack has 8 Rigs) -

TP LINK  -  T2600G-28TS   -  Managed Switch
TP LINK  -  T2700G-28TQ   -  Managed Switch
TP LINK  -  T2600G-28MPS  - Managed Switch

DLink    -   DGS-3120-24PC  - Managed Switch
DLink    -   DGS-3120-24TC  - Managed Switch


Should i go with the Managed Switch or Un Managed Switch for the switches on the rack?

With a managed switch you could cut off your stuff using VLANs to put into a separate network, and VPN in.

One of my switches is a Ubuiqiti (ES-24-LITE).

 No need for a seprate "load balancer" - quite a few options available to go from 2 or 3 WAN ports to your local network in firewall/VPN routers and I've never seen one that could NOT be configured for load balancing.

 I would IGNORE Dlink or TPLink for switches entirely.
 Cisco (ignore their "small business" line of relabled LinkSys junk) if you can find them cheap, used 3Com when you can find them, Netgear "blue box" pro line in their GS series, all are MUCH MUCH MORE RELIABLE long-term.

 Managed switches on a mining setup are a waste of money, unless you can get them cheap - might be usefull if you insist on trying to remote manage you miners from outside your LOCAL lan, but otherwise don't bother.




I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

Typically people VLAN off the security cameras from the main network, do not port forward, and vpn into the security cameras from outside the network. Port forwarding and UPnP introduce all the IoT hacks.

Ubiquiti routers/switches can do this. ERL3 for a router is pretty nice, unless you have a fiber connection. Add some Access Points for WIFI and a managed switch that can do VLAN.
