    your quite right, you could get a few IM apps going, but that's not the goal of this idea - this is to run a internet cafe

    that means loading LOTS of webpages, and a broadband connection

    All you need is:
    1 16 Port Switch
    1 10/100 RJ45 Network Card in all of the 12 PC's.
    12 Straight through Cat5 RJ45 Cables.
    All you have to do is connect all of the Network Cards to the Switch Ports with the Cat5 Cable. Then stick a small proxy server on the computer with the internet connection. You don't NEED a router (Unless one is supplied with the internet connection), hackers don't generally give a crap about an internet cafe. If you don't have network cards in the PC's already it should cost you around 800 bucks for the networking gear.

    Cat5 Cables can be bought at almost any electrical store.

    ok, 2 problems jay...

    1st, hardware's been covered already ;)

    2nd, hackers don't care WHAT they are hacking, they are simply attacking OPEN and VULNERABLE systems - simple software firewall and/or proxy isn't enough, hardware firewall (re: switch/router) is needed

    it could be NASA or a n00by's PC that they just got from chumpUSA - it doesn't matter a hacker will attack it


    ok, 3 problems, - it won't cost that much either :)





    --------
    for those who want to nitpik, yes i know the difference between 'hack' and 'crak' ;)

    In my opinion... if you are serious about this, but don't know how to do it, then find a friend or something who knows about this kind of stuff. While we try our best to give help here, nothing beats talking to someone who knows in real life. Setting up this kind of gear isn't really something that someone with limited networking knowledge should be attempting. All sorts of niggling little problems can crop up, and without the knowledge or experience in this kind of thing, you'll be on here forever and a day trying to figure out, while we'll be sitting here unable to do anything..

    Again, that's just my personal opinion.. the other guys around here are nicer than me, so you could have better luck with them.

    ut oh... you should see what types off connections are in your area...only you can find out..... (some people are stuck with 56k). I think alot of people are turning away from this thread because you won't answer the questions above.

    What connnection do you have now?
    What (if any) hardware do you have now?
    What do you plan on doing with all 12 pc's?

    Ok
    If you Have a broadband connection,DSL or any highspeed (cable)
    You need U.S. Dollars
    1 router 5 or 4 port about $50- $100 for a cheap one with firewall.
    2 five port Hubs about $20 - $50 for cheap ones 12 NIC cards 10/100mb or just 10mbp cheap ones about $5-$40
    14 straight through Cat 5 cables. $?
    Should work fine. Unless I missed something.
    Make sure all your cables are long enough.
    Just remember no matter what ... oh well I forgot
