We have made investigated a new regional Personal-Computer (PC) communication network system for residential users beyond Small Office and Home Office (SOHO)'s users. It provides a cost-effective and user-friendly PC communication environment to community members by supporting connections group communication services with customized audio-visual user-interface and contents, moreover authenticating them on the Media Access Control (MAC) destination address of the PC's. The user-interface is designed to start the PC communication without complex setup procedure. The members can use any protocol, because MAC address authentication is independent of the network layer protocol. This group communication services are offered by distributive bulletin board servers with Common Gateway Interface (CGI) and Hyper TExt Transfer Protocol (HTTP), which are distinguished from the Net News and primary bulletin board for conventional system. This paper discusses, based on a pilot experiment in a small residential area, the network congestion caused by broadcast traffic and address conflict caused by belong to plural groups at the same time and presents a solution. We also discuss the impact of a new bulletin board server derived from traffic data based on our pilot experiment for interaction and audio-visual group communication. The server is operated by specified CGI program on HTTP server and capable to support a interactive communication environment in World Wide Web.
