we are big into network gaming at my house as well as online gaming, I have an xbox for allmost every room that id like to include in the network (system link) and I have a few wireless devices that I would like to have access the network (laptop, pda, wireless xbox's, ect)
How can I accomplish all of this without breaking the bank?
Can I run a "cheap" 4 port wireless router with larger 16port hub/switch attached?
or 16 port wired router with wireless access point?
My biggest concern is compatibility and id also like to have a BT client running without locking out my router every couple of hours.
Any suggestions? id like to buy high quality components without breaking into the commercial market (keep my costs low) any advice on which brand components to buy?
