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. )
