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.
Yes,
then the DIR would work perfectly for you and would be best for you.

I would be more than happy to help you configure everything to set it up for you.

another good thing with the DIR is that it has Wireless A not alot of wireless cards have it, some new computers are coming out wtih it but the good thing for that is the fact that it runs in 5.8 ghz unlike the B and G which runs in 2.4 ghz.

just run your CAT5/e/6 straight back like you have it, mount the wireless router with the console systems, if you want additional wireless range outside hook another wireless router up where the cable runs out by the pool, or place a range extender a in that area and it should cover your back yard in a wifi blanket.

I would definitly have the construction workers if you can run network cable in the walls if they havne't put it up already

I would run cat 5/6 out to the pool and set up a Access point so you can still access the network.

If you put a router out there. You would have to get a router that can be configured into an AP. If you set an range extender out there you have to remember everytime you put a range extender it will cut the wireless signal in half... for instance.. 54 will drop into 27, if you add another then 27 will be cut into half.... and therefore, ect.....

Hmm, so an AP would be better right? What AP device you recomend to me, need to work with the DIR-855. And yes I also think that the PCM card would be better but, I dont think my notebook have port to plug it

I don't think I will use internet at the pool, I just need to cover inside the house and the balcony.

Like I say in the first post, I will have an AP (I think this is the best one DAP-1522).

I'm was thinking to do the falowing: Put the router right outside the Home Theater (PS3 and Wii room), so the router can cover the enterily left side of the house. The only problem is how I will pass the cables, so I can connect them to the router

What do you think? And where do I put the AP? Remenber I need excellent (PLUS++) signal at the first room.

See here please:


Thank you guys again and sorry for my english it's 4:36Am here

First,
i would move it closer to your ps3... I dont think you need intenet access in the garage and the bathroom right? *lol*

second,
place the ap where i am showing you right. I will be perfectly honest with you. Your wireless signaal is going to be alot stronger than what your indicating in the photo.

THRID,
OVER BY WHERE I HAVE THE AP...
YOU CAN USE A POWER NETWORK ADAPTER INSTEAD OF RUNNING CABLE IF YOU LIKE.
PREFERELY I WOULD RUN CABLE... BUT ITS REALLY UP TO YOU

Yes, but where you say to me put the router is in the corner behind two walls, the AP you show me is also behind two walls.

I prefer cable and like I say the router or the AP need to be near the first room, I need 200% wireless signaal over there.

Take a closer look here (in this photo you can see where the PS3, Wii and notebooks are going to be, I think this photo will help you help me ):

Thank you!

Edit: Hmm, but if I put the router where you say so, the router will be very close to the first room, hmm. I don't know anything anymore.

I'm not aware of the need for wireless N and dual band, is this a requirement for PS3?
