    Vigor 120 ADSL Modem
    Vigor 2920 Router
    TP Link Home Plugs and Wireless Extender
    Multiple mini switches dotted around
    HP Proliant G4 (I think) running as DC, DNS, Update box (new thing recently)

    I have a QNAP NAS and HP MicroServer not in use.

    When I move out this will be revamped but to what I am not sure yet.

    I currently have a RouterBoard RB450G 5-port gigabit switch acting as my main switch, with a DrayTek Vigor 120 acting as an ADSL modem. The RB450G came with a license for RouterOS, but I installed OpenWRT in the end as I found it less clunky. I'm keen to try out OpenFlow / general software defined networking functionality, but I don't think the RB450G is ideal - OpenWRT (and, I assume, Linux in general) only sees two network interfaces, eth0 and eth1, with eth1 being a black-box 4-port switch. Seemingly Open vSwitch will run on physical hardware as well as inside a virtual machine, I might try that on some different hardware. Also, the RB450G gets remarkably warm during operation - almost too hot to touch.

    Some computers, laptops, tablets, phones and a wireless router connected to a Virgin "super" hub configured as a modem.

    Oh and an old HP print server sharing an old HP DeskJet printer.

    Next upgrade will probably be a NAS of some sort

    Ooops I forgot, a pair of power over mains thingys for the TV
