Let me start by saying that everyone here has been extremely helpful over the years and the encouragement and advice I have received over the past few days has been outstanding! Here is what I would like to do with the home network: 1. Connect two computers (perhaps three or four) to my internet connection. 2. Connect two DirecTV DVRs to the network to get VOD...something that I haven't used yet. 3. Connect a printer or two to the network so that I can print from any of the computers. 4. Continue to use wireless for my laptop and smartphones. Here is what I have now: 1. DSL from Century Link (12Mbps DL / 896 Kbps upload) 2. Actiontec M1000 DSL modem 3. Linksys WRT54GS router My situation: 1. House has Cat5E cabling run to all of the rooms and jacks 2. I have traced and labeled all of the wires to the utility room box 3. Running TIA 568B configuration. 4. DSL enters the home to the M1000 DSL modem then to the Linksys WRT54GS router 5. Junction box for all of the Cat5E lines is located in the utility room downstairs What I would LIKE to do is this..... DSL Modem ----> Router (need advice on a good wireless one for my needs) ----> Computer in upstairs . From the Router I have a Cat5e that goes to the utility room junction box this is where I would like to place the switch to hardwire the house. For example: Switch---->DirecTv -->DirecTv -->Computer -->Media center (possibly) My limitations are currently: I would like to keep the DSL modem and Router in the UPSTAIRS. I have ONE Cat5e line that runs down to the junction panel/box downstairs (where I want the switch to be) The diagrams I tried to make are not the best but essentially I would like to keep the modem and the router upstairs and use a Cat5e to take the internet downstairs to the switch. From there the signals could be distributed over the existing Cat5e lines in the house to places I need it. I would LIKE to maintain the direct line to the business computer upstairs off of one of the direct lines from the router. Make sense? What would you suggest for my situation? Hardware? Would I see benefits from going to a Wireless N router? Suggestions? I appreciate the suggestions!!!!!!!!!!!!
