okay.. before the problem.. here's the situation first...
we bought a com cafe (SHOP A).. 40 computers.. modem from the ISP (PLDT MyDSL), a linksys router.. 2 dlink gigabit switch... win xp sp3..
all was fine up to now..
we expand and bought the neighbor cafe (SHOP B)... set
up sucks.. utp color coding not even among the 568-a and b..
they just had the both ends same...
no router.. the setup was modem >> Dlink DES-1024R+ 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch >>> computers..
at first i dont know how to connect these two shops but someone taught me what to do..
Connecting a Cable between Shop A and Shop b Switches (link)
Change the IP add and subnet of Shop B computers and make them follow Shop A setup..
Shop A... 172.16.2.... Shop B 172.16.4.... >>> 172.16.2...
Change the gateway of Shop B computers so that it will follow Shop A setup again... since we let go of the ISP of Shop B
(to prevent two internet bills).. but we still keep the modem of Shop B and it's acting as a hub..
and its done...
Now... we were introduced to a new ISP (Sky Broadband) and will give us a 1 month trial of internet usage..
my problem is the installation of that ISP..
I want it to be installed in Shop B.. but knowing Shop B's setup
What do you think of the changes that's going to happen? If the they will only bring a modem.. what will happen?
Do i need to manually changed the IP again?
Do i need to remove the link of Shop A and Shop B to avoid conlift?
I mean im a total newbie here.. so please spare me of technical terms
can you please help me or share your thoughts with my problem...
Thanks in advance for those who will answer... ^^
