So hopefully in the next couple of weeks I will be moving out of my parents place (again haha) and into a 1 bedroom apartment. I want to make sure I set up the network right the first time and have set aside part of my budget for networking gear. I want to share my internet connection with the hole apartment via wired and wireless (Probably Century Link DSL 7mbs down/5mbs up). Here is what I currently have: -Dlink Dir-601 router (10/100 & N 150mbs) w/ DD-WRT -2x 85mbs netgear powerline adapters -Plenty of cat5e cable -Main PC (10/100/1000) + 40" Samsung LED LCD -Media Server (10/100/1000) + 50" Toshiba LED LCD -Netbook w/ N wifi -Android phone w/ N wifi -Game console future purchase (probably xbox 360) So I am thinking the easy way would be to just use the powerline adapters to connect my 2x PC's together along with my router for wifi but the transfer speeds would be horrible and security would be an issue. I would prefer to buy a 10/100/1000 switch and cat5e along the floor (hide as much i can), use my router strictly as a wifi access point, and not use the powerline adapters. What do you think? If buy a switch what would be a good one for as cheap as possible? Really just need something with about 5-8 ports. Thanks!
