Hi Synology forum.
Seems Synology makes quality product, with nice looking FAQs and nice, invitingly, forums.
The question, I hope people of this forum can help me with, is maybe real basic knowledge in network administration, but I want to start learning about heavy networking administration for multiple users.
The small business I'm trying to help in better their usage of technology, by buying a DS212+, has already installed, for networking and internet, a Web-Based Smart Switch:
The TrendNet - 24-port 10/100Mbps Web-Based Smart Switch (TE100-S24WS)
http://www.trendnet.com/products/prodde ... tatus=view
So the BIG question is, if I connect the DS212+ to the TrendNet, will the DS then be connected to all the other outgoing connections from the TrendNet (computers (windows and macs), routers and wireless routers).
Hope someone can help . . .
EDIT: Or you could say, the question is more like: Is it that "simple" to connect a DS212+ to all the computers, routers and wireless router, by "simply" pluggin a network cable from the DS to the main (source) router (the TrendNet).
'Main source router' meaning, as mentioned earlier, that all other network hardware is connected to it.
