Seeking Advice on a few things 8 years 3 months ago #33521

Hi all,

My first post here , I signed up to get very knowledgeable advice and idea's etc for some things I'm setting up at my new Home / Work { Hotel }

I do have a fair bit of knowledge but not enough , and nice to get a second opinion and suggestions from others , so I'm all ears!

First My Hardware

Mounted in a cabinet in the reception

Draytek Vigor2820VSn with 3 x Draytek ANT-1107 7dBi Omni-Antenna
DrayTek Vigor120 ( not in use yet as only 1 x adsl at the moment )
HP Procurve 1800-24G Switch
HP DataVault X510 ( Windows Home Server - 5TB )
QNAP TS-259 Pro ( 2 x 1TB Raid1 )
Apple Airport Express ( creating a WDS Bridge to Apple Extreme*)

*Apple Airport Extreme is located in my own lounge which is connected to Airport Express via WDS hidden WPA2/PSK no Clients or extended Bridge , sole only purpose to link both ends , as Airport extreme has 3 switch for PS3, Sony Media Centre and Sony Bravia TV

Issue's so far

1. Load Balance between HP Procurve 1800-24g to QNAP TS-259 Pro isn't working when i try to port trunk on the HP side so have to leave the qnap to use a different type of load balance ( Balance-alb [Adaptive Load Balancing] ) other than IEEE 802.3ad ( LACP enabled if possible )

2. I've created 3 SSID's , 1 is hidden at WPA2/PSK for usage for Staff and Hotel , 2. is visible for hotel guest's and is VLAN2 for internet only , 3 is visible and WEP 128 with only 1 device connected and its MAC as the only accepted MAC for that SSID ( as the device only uses visible wep setup
My issue is to setup a Radius Hotspot type free Wifi for guest's in almost the same way you'd do in other hotels / cafes on either QNAP or X510 WHS , any suggestions

3. I'm running a few services on the QNAP ( Joomla . XDove etc ) and Purchased 2 x website domains and would like to host them on the QNAP and use Vhost via apache conf , the supplier of the domain names said i'll need name servers to link to my static ip , would using and purchase "Simple DNS Plus' 5 Zone licence do the trick as it will improve internet access and allow name to ip resolution etc

4. Any other ideas will be very appreciative

I'll soon be getting installed a second adsl for load balance via draytek vigor120, as well as 4 Access Points ( Draytek AP700 ) 1 for each floor to continue the same SSID's to each floor etc

then next stage is Panasonic IP cameras ( 4 of them ) to save on the X510 , as well as apparently the panasonics can be seen via vierra cast on my HD Panasonic blu-ray surround sound kit
