Didn't see a thread describing different peoples home networks. I'd like to see what others have done and maybe gets some ideas. I have a pretty solid home network, but I really have no idea what I'm doing, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I built my house in 2004 and I wired it with ethernet. Eight ethernet cables meet in my garage and are connected with a switch. I have cable modem, and a Netgear Rangemax router in an office/bedroom. All of the bedrooms are wired. I have an iMac in our kitchen/family room (it's all one big space). I finished the basement and added a 4-port switch and 3 more ethernet jacks. I have 2 Macs, the iMac in the kitchen and a Macbook in the office, and a couple of a Dell laptops that I grab if I need connectivity in another room. I also have a windows XP box, with no keyboard, mouse, or monitor, that acts a NAS, with 1.1 TB storage. One of the drives attached to the NAS is the time machine backup for our iMac. I also access the NAS box frequently using RDC and run background tasks, like auto backing up my media, downloading torrents, etc. All of my docs, digital pics, and home videos get backed up twice a day. I also bought a fireproof safebox and back everything up once every couple of weeks to a couple of 500 GB drives. Also have a network printer, 2 linksys network webcams so I can check on things from work, and 2 airport expresses to stream music. One of the cameras and one of the airports are wired, the others are wireless. The next thing I'm going to add is an aTV. I wasn't smart enough to put an ethernet jack where my downstairs tv is, so I want to wire up something from the basement, so that the aTV will be wired, not wireless. I also want to replace the Router with an Airport Extreme.
