A new home/office wireless+wired network
- My wife and I have a home office as well as 3 kids. We are planning for a network with 3-4 wired computers, 3-4 wireless computers and about 6 iTouch's are in the house everyday with the kids. It's an old victorian home with three floors, a cellar and a yard we'd like to use wirelessly. I will read related articles below to learn more about why my wireless computers always seek out my neighbors wireless connections over our own.
- I have 1 main computer a secondary computer in the same room. I have 2 laptops and now have a Sony BluRay with Internet connections.
