I aggree with you completely. The wireless is a sort of luxury only. I
already pulled an ethernet wire outside the house up to the room of my son
and it is relatively easy to branch that wire to feed the room of my
daughter too. Even if you consider that the cable got 4 pairs and only 2
pairs are needed per connection. Thus I'll very likely re-crimp the ends of
the existing cable with two connectors at each end or use a small hub at the
upper level rooms.

The wireless thing is intriguing because I see sets (basestation card and
one remote PCMCIA card) for little money in our electronics discounter.

With best regards / Viele Gruesse
