I said that because it's not. You're giving miserable advice to someone who obviously need more then a wireless connection to connect his four home machines and three media servers.

It's a good thing your not trying to stream to all five machines at a time! Wireless can only communicate with one attached device at a time. It's called CSMA/CA

What about using existing coaxial? We have that ran in every room of the house. I don't know much about it but alot of people have suggested it. Would that be better then a good wireless N network?

For Ethernet over coax you are looking for MoCa. http://www.mocalliance.org/ (There are a few other standards, but MoCa is gaining popularity)

You could also look into ethernet over your power lines.

Personally, I would just go for a decent wireless N setup.

I would recommend against Powerline, it relies heavily on microwaves and other power hungry things not plugged into the same electrical circuit as the wires that the data is being sent on. If you want to do coax because it is already existing, run a MoCa setup like Atomic recommends.

Would coax provide more reliable and consistant speeds in order to stream full HD movies? Thats my biggest concern. I've read more complaints about power invertors then wireless so I'm not really interested in that setup.

Yes it is consistent. Verizon FIOS uses Moca to connect the STB to the router and then to the box outside your house. Although i changed the coax connection from the box outside to the router to a cat 6 cable to my linksys and then to my Verizon Router

OK. We have HD sat ran threw the coaxial line currently. I'm assuming that won't interfere or cause issue if I go with the coaxial solution? I've read a few blogs on the net that says you can't run internet over coaxial if running satelite. I'm not sure if that's true or not so I better ask. Thanks

IIRC coaxial can handle multiple signals through division of the unused channels. It won't interfere, I used to have Coaxial for all phone internet and cable TV. It shouldn't, but i'd wait for a more experienced person to answer

100 pack RJ-45 connectors = 5.19
Great Crimping tool = 16.48

Total $103.92

Having full duplex, priceless.
What about Cat 5e, 6, 6e, 7, and 7e? I'm looking at running cables for my HTPC build as well.
