  • Help with network please

    Greeting to all,

    I am new to here.
    Let me introduce myself;
    My name is Stephan and i am from the Caribbean.

    Now to the good part....

    We have a medium sized organization,
    Now within the organization, we have many different ip networks on one physical network.

    The reason being is to separate the network.

    We have a File Server on one network with the Scheme of 192.168.0.0/24

    Clients in the headoffice are also on this network.


    Now we Have DVR Systems thats use a 192.168.100.0/24 Scheme as well.


    Also Have a 'Pixel Point Server' Which basically is a Cash Register Server, With One in each location of our WAN.

    Our Wan is connected to our headoffice by a switch, no routers.

    These Pixel Point Servers are on a 10.10.0.0/16 Network.



    Now the problem.
    As we can foresee the problem is that, All these networks are on one broadcast and collision domain.

    I can run a packet sniffer in promiscuous mode and read all broadcast.

    And as the network continues to grow... Performance will be affected.



    I Would like to know how i should go about re-designing the network.



    Regards,
    Stephan

    Create seperate VLANS to rule out the broadcasting.

      Hi,

      Is it possible to post a diagram of your network so we have a better idea?
      When you say these networks are on the same Broadcast and collision domain, does it mean that you are using Hubs/Repeaters instead of a switched network?
