Default 40 pc network

I have a 40 pc network and I use Small Business Server 2003. We can have up to 75 pcs and it comes with Ms Exchange. Very smooth, no problems. And its cheaper. Tom

if you're considering VLANs ... you'll need a layer 2 switch capable of this service. They're usually called "managed switches". Very cool ... creates logical groupings of pc's that might not necessarily be physically close together. Reduces broadcast traffic, by grouping "depts" that communicate with each other on a more frequest basis. You mentioned you have 5 departments you're creating. AD and DNS is a great way to start. To further enhance your network, VLAN's would certainly be a step in the right direction ... view it as an additional security feature as well.
