I got a Ubuntu Server that run smb, transmission-daemon and DNS. In my home we are 9 people, with a total of 16 devices connected to the network.
List of "hardware"
- 100Mbit line in
- Standard modem from ISP
- 2x N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router
- Dumb gigabit switch (Not in use now)
Right now i have connected it like this: line in -> modem -> router -> router. In "prime time" we got some spikes on the network (this is on both cable and wlan). On a daily base we in total download/upload 22GB a day.
I was wondering if I can set up my server with two more network cards, and set up those as router, then my network would look like this:
line in -> modem -> Server router -> switch -> 2x router.
TLDR: How to set up Ubuntu server with 3 network cards, 1 for local server, 2 for Router.
I think the spikes comes from the poor router that is the connected to the modem.
