I need someone to tell me how to set up a network for an Internet cafe from scratch. Don't assume anything - you're dealing with an absolute beginner :)
I need to know how to connect to the outside world. What sort of connection I need (e.g. ADSL, ISDN etc.). Do I need to sign up with the telephone company etc. Do I need routers, bridges, switches etc. How do I handle email, security, backups and virus protection etc. Everything! Diagrams will be a great help.
For better or worse, it will be a network based on Windows XP unless there's good reason to avoid this.
I just need a comprehensive report which answers as many of my questions as possible, walking me through the entire process.
