    Ok I'm due to move into my new house and as its a bit of a posh effort the missus says I can't go drilling holes in wall etc for the network so I was thinking about wireless....

    the question is what issues will this create will I have any interferience on my screen etc - I currently use a standard 28inch crt but will be moving to 42" plasma shortly.. also does the 11mb bandwidth support playing DVDs from a media server in the server room... :) (new house has a server room, sorry I am sad..)

    anybody got any pratical experience with such a setup??

    thanks

    You should't get interference, they're all tested and passed for that, not like cellphones!!! You do ont have the bandwidth t network play a DVD, even the latest 22mbit is tight/impossible.

    I use wireless for my htpc, and see no interference even though the card is next to the tv.

    I use wireless and hardwired

    Laptop and HTPC are both wireless
    3 pc's upstairs are hardwired through a cable router/switch
    2 printers hardwired through intel printserver.

    Wireless is no good for streaming DVD so will be hardwiring the HTPC.

    I have a wireless lan and the only thing it interferes with is my wireless tv and remote sender system (it uses microwave for the picture and radio for the remote control). I switch the lan off when watching TV in the bath & bed.
