    Impressive cable setup. I rancables as well cause I have this nagging
    feeling that too much wireless leads to longterm cancer and that we will
    find out in 40 yrs time or so. Probably nothing too serious to worry about
    in reality, but I stick to cables as well, simply for speed and the old “it
    always works” things.

    I would never use all those Macs myself, but I think the garage computer is
    brilliant and the idea of having the “kid cave” near your “lab” is great so
    they (a) don’t hovel up in their rooms alone and (b) if they are sub-12,
    you can surveilance their internet use a bit without it looking suspicious
    to them.

    I bet your wife did a Marge-hrrrmmmm! when she discovered you pointed out
    her setup being the messy one xD

    In conclusion, I do thing sort of like you, and my plan for the future is
    90% of what you got with less volume of devices bc less kids than you and
    no house(flat). Laser ftw btw.

    all you need is a standard wireless router and a computer with a backup
    drive

    Very nice setup for a SOHO!! Your wife and my wife look like they took
    interior decorating together. Does your wife complain about the nerdyness?
    Mine does. You have excellent points about Ethernet. Anyone who believes
    that a wireless access point from Comcast is enough, obviously hasn’t run a
    lot of data through their network! Looks great and organized!! Thanx for
    sharing!!

    You need to drink the windex you have on the counter because the world does
    not want your cheap mac network.

    The switch and cabel management is realy nice. Why you dont get *one*
    NAS-machine with RAID5/6 HDD-Setup instead of 4 external HDDs? And why the
    heck are you using only Macs? Also why the port tags are on the switches
    and not on the cables?

    You are living the dream, man.

  18. Comment by Abestar123:

    No patch panel, using the the modem from your ISP, everything is mac and
    running externals instead of a actual NAS box….. an impressive home
    network if you don’t know much about network hardware.

    nice network..but it would just use PC’s and Micro PCs with cat 6 or more.

  20. Comment by Se7enAte:

    I saw all the ethernet switches and instantly thought “wow what a waste of
    time and money” but then after explaining it I understand. It’s more than I
    would ever use but if the have the need, make it work

  21. Comment by FidzoOoO:

    looks cool but its useless, i have the same at home and its a looooot
    smaller 

  22. Comment by Jon MRC:

    I feel like this is overkill for crappy computers that wouldn’t need it, im
    sure 2 routers could provide enough wireless bandwidth for every device.
    Maybe not with the assurance of losing one packet but thats not really
    needed when youre just surfing the net.

    Probably the most horrible voice i’ve EVER heard.

  24. Comment by Cloud Twirler:

    You know what I have. I have a single modem. It supplies wireless
    connection all devices in my house that need it. It works well. It’s not
    expensive. It doesn’t cost more in power than my internet does. It doesn’t
    take up a closet. It didn’t take a lot of time to set up. It doesn’t make
    noise. Good day to you sir. Joke’s on you and your outdated Ethernet
    cables.

    Wow. You think any of that is cheap, even used? Lucky. I would love to have
    a network like this. I’m only 12 so let’s see how that goes.
