Help Me Set Up Wireless and Wired Network on New House

Please,
So, this going to be my new house , and I need help to set up my Wireless and Wired network, like the best place to put the router and AP or RangeBoosters.

Questions:
Where is the best place to put the router (DIR-855 or DGL-4500)?
I gonna have one AP or range booster where to put (AP or RB)?

What do you think it's better, buy a range booster like this one (link) or this here (link) from Hawking or should I buy a AP like this one over here (link)?

This is my scenario: Big home (really big) with a DIR-855 Router, 2 notebooks equiped with DWA-160 adapters, 1 Nintendo Wii, 1 PS3. Wireless network and Wired Network.

Here it is! My new brand house (Complete diagram, so you guys can help me):


Hope my english is ok, and please, I want everybody opinions! Thanks Seven Forums!
(Edit the picture with your opinions, please put a router picture where you think it's better)

Product links: DIR-855, DAP-1522, DWA-160, Is that enough information?

------------------------
PLEASE GO TO THE LAST POST, YOU DON'T NEED TO READ EVERY POST TO HELP ME.

First off, Welcome to Seven Forums!

Looks like you have a really nice house on the way. Congratulations!

The first question I'd ask is what kind of internet access you're planning on installing. Cable, DSL? What speed?

Second: What devices are you planning on having wired vs wireless?

Third: What are the walls made of in the area where the primary coverage is? Drywall? Wood studs vs metal studs?

Last: What wired cable (ethernet) are you installing? CAT5, CAT5e or CAT6?

Let's start with the basic info and take it from there shall we?

Ok just for placement only, I would put the router in the same room as the PS3. This was you can easily cable connect to it. For wifi access to the router, there shouldnt be any issue from the other two rooms, unless your house is an underground compound.

Yes, thank you again!

Yes, DSL Cable and DSL Wireless, the speed should be 3.2Mb or 8.0Mb. Sorry I live in Brazil, and my city have only one DSL ISP, it's a monopoly, but GVT shoud come here nexter year.

Second: What devices are you planning on having wired vs wireless?
Not shure if I understand this question, but the devices should be:
Router: D-Link DIR-855 (the DIR-855 have 4 Cable connection ports, so..).
Access Point: D-Link Xtreme N Duo Wireless Bridge DAP-1522 (Also have 4 Cable connection ports)
Adapters: Two Dwa-160 Xtreme N Dual Band USB Adapters

I think this is it.

Third: What are the walls made of in the area where the primary coverage is? Drywall? Wood studs vs metal studs?
Hmm, I think it's made of bricks , it's that the question?

Hmm, I think Cat5e is suitable to me, what do you think?

Yes, thank you very very much for yourr help!

Thanks you too aem! But I need excellent (PLUS++) signal to my room (the first room). If I put the router in the PS3 room, the signal will be excellent (PLUS++)?

Best place of course would be the Middle room for a wireless router becuase its between the two rooms but the best router I think if your goign to connect your PS3 would be te DGL 4300 and that should be placed in the same room or if you could somehow hard wire it to theplaystation 3. that would really help out.

Because I know the Wii is wireless only... and then he has two wireless laptops

I can't put the router in the middle room, first becouse the other rooms on the left will have cables, second my brother is in medical school, so the wireless max signal would be wasted, becouse he rarely came home.

And yes, the PS3 room will have one cable, and the DGL-4300 is inferior at DIR-855, I think you mean the DGL-4500?

What do you think? Can you edit the picture with your opnion, thank you.

I just want to say thank you so much for the diagram on the frist try. Tha helps us out about 80%. You can't imagine how many people write on here and tell us things and give us nothing. I appreicate that.

Now that we have an understanding of where your internet is coming in thats good.

Okay Set the 4500 router up where the WII and PS3 is. Hard Wire the PS3 into the router. and set the internet up in that room.

It is an extreme N router so you may have luck and it go through the walls. Never know until you try. Can you connect your laptop to the router and then walk to each room and tell us how much signal you have and loose?

Your right it is a better router... but it really depends on what yo use it for... 4500 is designed for gaming... it has the game fuel built into it.

then the other ne is designed for speed and power to handle the speed & lenght. I mean if all you are going to do is go on the internet and play on the ps3 a few tiems by yourself theni would go with the dir router.....but if you are going to be doing alot of gaming and port forwarding... things lke that becuase it deals with alot of quality of service then i suggest the 4500

What I'm going to do with the PS3 and the Wii? Play games like The Punisher online or CoD MW Reflex and Streaming media. I don't play PC games, but I do need internet quality for my notebook for P2P and P2M programs, also watch HD videos, like the Revision3 videos.

Thank you again.
