I have cincinnati bell fiber @ 1gbps. I am currently using their modem/router/switch combo box and one of my own routers. I would like to set up a LAN network capable of handling more bandwidth. The router/modem combo has 5 gigabit Ethernet ports and wifi. My router is a Netgear router with 5 ethernet ports and wifi. I want to set up a home network for file transfers and video/music streaming from a central server PC which will contain the files to be streamed. I would like to wire Ethernet plug-ins for laptops and in most rooms. I want to be able to stream lightly-compressed (blu-ray level) and uncompressed 1080p and 4K movies stored on the server to two HTPCs that are attached to the TVs (one is a RP CRT unit in the basement and one is a Plasma in the living room). I also want the server to be accessible from the WAN so that I can play or read anything stored on it from outside of the house. I understand the very basics of networking, but I need advice on how to set this up. How much bandwidth is needed to stream 1920x1080 blu-ray-level compressed movies to each TV? How much for uncompressed 4K? How much for lightly 4K? Would paying to both TVs at once need more bandwidth than just one?
