Alright two questions: Moving into an apartment soon, and I need a networking solution that doesn't involve stringing cables up. The apartment expands upwards; it's 3 stories, 3 bedroom. So it's not a very wide apartment, just spreads up instead of out. Getting SBC DSL. Got 3 machines to hook up, two on the 3rd floor, one on the second (and ground floor is living room). Is wireless reliable enough? I've got a kinda old Netgear wireless router, and it's asstastic. Could I place a wireless router on second floor and that'd reach the third floor? Two computers are laptops with wifi cards, but my computer doesn't have any wireless cards. Internal/external? How much about? Suggestions would be t3h good. I don't really wanna string cat5s all over the apartment, cause it'd hafta get wound around the spiral metal staircase, which wouldn't be easy/good. Would a wireless router also splash downstairs so I could get coverage in the living room? I just need some good equipment I guess, I can handle all the config/security/setup. Thanks guys. Oh yeah! Second question, what's the difference between a hub and a switch? We lan and use a 12 slot hub. It's an older 10-Half hub, and I was thinking about getting a new way to put all of us together (non-wireless). Thanks again!
