We're looking at getting a T1 line between our home site and our remote site. What hardware would I need on both ends of it? Also, the home site has an internet connection that will serve as the connection for both sites. How would I need to layout the network in order to accomplish this?
How to layout the network depends on the current layout, and on what you want. Do you have a firewall between your internet router and your LAN, or does the internet router itself function as firewall? Can the internet router be re-used for this connection (i.e. does it have a free slot?)
Do you want to firewall the traffic between the sites?
Supposing you have a firewall behind your internet router and you do not want to firewall traffic between the sites, just place a new router (1600 or 1700 as suggested in another post) behind the firewall, same model at the remote site, and do static routing.
