Is this kind of network possible?

by dadisam - 10/12/12 2:53 PM

First of all.. i work at a computer shop... (im not a very techie though)
1 isp... 5 ips with each having a 5mbps speed.. as they said..

our original setup is...
modem (4 port) --> linksys Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router (4port) --> Dlink Gigabit switch (24port)>> then 21 computers.. 1 is acting the time server for the 20 computers..

internet setup is static... since i used 1 of the 5 ip's available.. there's 4 more..
router ip> 172.16.2.1
so all of the computers' gateway is 172.16.2.1..

and then there is an issue regarding the speed of our net.. since it is a shop.. we cant avoid others to download (hogging all the speed).. so a lot are complaining and then im askin myself "why not use 1 more ip of the our isp.. so that there will be more speed"?

what shall i do??
should i buy another router?
and if i have that another router.. what will be the setup??

im thinking like this..

modem port 1>> 1st router(172.16.2.1)>> dlink switch>> 10 computers
com#1 ip is 172.16.2.6 sub 255.255.0.0 gateway 172.16.2.1

modem port2>> 2nd router (172.16.2.2)>> dlink switch>> 10 computers
com# 11 is 172.16.2.16 sub 255.255.0.0 gateway 172.16.2.2

that way.. each 10 computers are enjoying a full 5mbps speed.. instead of 20 sharing it right?

now im asking "is the setup wrong?" why? and what should be the correct?

if it is correct? will there be a network traffic issues?

will the time server be able to see them all?

will the 21 computers be able to see/connect each other in lan games?

please teach me how... im begging you.. lately our shop has been decreasing in customers...
