    Is this an office LAN setup / for your personal use. How many computers did you want to connect under LAN networking? For a simple LAN connection, a LAN cable is required to connect with two computers (cross LAN cable) and software is TCO/IP which is built-n on all OS. You have to assign an IP for each computer (unique one) and make a ping to make sure that they are connected. Is there any equipment/special software that you purchased.

    Network requirements and design is important prior to going for physical layout. Once you decide on these two, hire a good local network professional to deploy it.

    I have to agree with Subhendu Sen. A lot more information is needed before anything is decided on here. The main though is the number of computers that will be connected to this LAN, and will it need internet access?

    For guidelines on setting up a LAN, check out this page. If you have questions, come back. Are you also looking to have a server where data is shared or are you looking at cloud storage? There are a lot of ways you can go.
