New to the forum. Thanks in advance for advice. Somewhat on a budget. I am building a new house and am confused (and weak on tech knowledge) on how to obtain my internet and networking needs. My desire is to utilize cable broadband internet anywhere in the house and on multiple machines simultaneously. I would also like to network all my machines together. Equipment: E Mac (running osX), older G4 (running os9), i Mac (running 9, but could switch to 10) and last and certainly least my heathen peecee laptop (compaq running windows 95). Questions: Do I run cat 5 all through the house or go wireless? Can I use cable broadband to use simultaneous internet connections? Can we be file sharing and be internet connected simultaneously? If I need to go the cat 5 route I would need to hardwire 14 seperate locations. Is there such a thing as a 16 port router? Is there a better method than a 16 port router? (if cat 5) Can I move the computers from room to room without having to adjust the router or other settings anywhere? If hard wiring is the way to go should I consider cat 6? Would DSL make more sense then cable broadband? If I left any thing out that is needed (or desirable) please advise. Thanks folks!
