Wireless Router with 3 Pcs. two laptops and an archos tablet.
Been thinking of building me a watercooled pc (as some of you know) and turning my PC into a File Server.
The router is thrown out the window on a regular basis, due to it being a D-Link and rather useless.

A god awful AMD 3700+ with 1gb RAM. The only good thing about it is my purple Cheiftech dragon case.
I've also got a PS2, an ancient 3Com router and 14" Sharp TV.

At the last count, something like 9 PCs running OS's like Ubuntu, RedHat, Widows Whatever, with a Win2k3 server. Four Windows XP/ Vista laptops. An iMac. A macbook. 2 wireless networks (one internet facing, one closed). A mess of cat5e. And a whingeing wife who wonders why the electricity bill is so high

I was gonna say! how much is your electric bill hahah

At the moment, none.
Coming to an arrangement with a small business though where they'll pay my internet connection costs, and for a decent pipe, and in return I'll host and support a couple of low-profile servers for them.
Don't know whether its going to go through yet or not, but here's hoping.

1 Zoom X6 router
1 self built PC (wired, can't be arsed to write the spec)

My Wife's work laptop occasionally (wireless)
