Hey guys, Well I am thinking about setting up a wireless network when I move. I am moving out of my sister's house, and into my aunts house, where there is no ethernet setup in my room. My room is on the second floor right side of the house... and the cable modem is on the first floor left side of the house. And it's a relatively big house [at least by my standards]. They told me that I can get a network cable run up to there, but that's going to be coming out of my pocket. Now I'm a fan of the network that I am running now. It runs great, and I have no complaints. It is a wired network though, using a Linksys BEFSR41. But now I'm thinking about doing the whole wireless network thing because I don't have any ideas about who I can call to get the network cable run to my room [any ideas?] For the most part there are two things I am going to be doing. Gaming, and I will also have a server that will be used to back up a lot of files for everybody. Now, my rig is eventually going to be water cooled, so I'm not too keen on having to put in a wireless PCI card. I see that they have these USB adapters that plug in and you get wireless internet through them. Are they going to give me exactly the same performance as I would if I had a wireless NIC card? What about gaming, am I going to notice a difference? I don't know what kind of cordless phones they use, I don't think it's the newest thing on the market, but I don't know. I know that there is only one microwave in the path of the network. I'm just seriously considering this, but I need some kind of input first. Some people say stick with wired if I can help it. Others say that they have absolutely no problems when it comes to running a wireless network through the house... Cliff notes: 1) How do I find out who I need to contact in order to get a cable run from one side of the house to the other? 2) What do you guys think about setting up a wireless network? 3) How does a wireless network affect gaming? 4) What if I have two wireless devices in the same room? 5) How does a wireless network affect the sharing of files on a network, for backup purposes?
