In our  DIY NAS using laptop T450 series let’s check on the proposed Home Lan NAS topology.

Our motive is to build a 1 Gbps NAS without spending on Fancy NAS stuff. for 4-5 users for office work, Video streaming not 4k VIdeo editing :).   I will use my existing ISP home broadband 1 Gbps router with 4 built-in ports.

Win 10/Linux Clients/DLNA like smart TV/VLC ——- Ruter —— NAS on T450 laptop. All devices are equipped with 1 Gbps except TV.

Which ethernet cable is required for 1Gbps LAN?

Preferable LAN cable for 1 Gbps network is 6 but 5e also you can use but NOT 5.

Router Hardware Model:  HG8145V5

NAS server: Lenevo T450 with 15 GB RAM ( even 4GB also works fine for pure NAS use without add ons like docker etc. )

The next Task is about storage planning for home NAS using laptop T450
