I have a network assignment to complete which asks for me to set up a small office network specificly focussing on cable types for 7-8 people and 1 printer to 3-4 people. Can anyone please help regarding which cable type would be best to use and recommendations for connectors. :D

    HiYa Kimberly - would definitely be a 100BaseT setup using Cat5e cable.
    I would think depending on how the desktops and printers are located that you could run this as a simple peer to peer network with a couple of 5 port switches.
