Networking at home

Sometime you need to do things just to have fun and not becuase there is a real need.

This is the case of my home network that I’ve over complicated ON PURPOSE.


  • Two different private LAN (,
  • 8 Wifi networks
  • Internal DNS service to resolve hostname under subdomain (
  • Internal DHCP service (Disabled the one provided by the router) that automatically update the entries in the DNS). Picture below
  • The two DNS machines are behind a clustered load balancer that redirect in Round Robin fashion the client’s  DNS queries.
  • Two NAS devices with over 9 TB available storage
  • Home server running 24×7 hosting around 20 VM with APC battery


Cluster of loadbalancer to server DNS queries (This is really over engineering and made only for fun!! )
