I am assuming that you are using outsourced IT currently. My first question is what do you have already (ie. server, NAS, Network switch, windows xp desktops, Macs, nothing, etc.)? Second question is what do you plan on using the network for(allowing vpn, providing local email, backing up computer, etc.)?

Once that question is answered we can begin. I might look over this link quickly to help identify possible needs:
