    Setting up a home network.


    Smoothwall Firewall box, a 2003 server file and printer server box, ADSL router, and three client PC’s.

    My plans are:

    Router > Smoothwall Firewall box > file and printer server box > client PC’s.

    Main question, when configuring Smoothwall Firewall box should I allow the Smoothwall Firewall box to perform DHCP services as well or should I just let the router do all that and use the Smoothwall Firewall box strictly as a hardware firewall solution behind the ADSL router?

    I’m just wondering if I should disable my ADSL router’s DHCP function or not…

    Any thoughts/tips/complaints/comments? ;)
