I just got off the phone with someone who wants to hire me to do a "networking" job. Here has a wireless network. He told me he wants to be able to watch movies on every wireless device in his house. He wants to be able to somehow hook up a dvd player/burner to his wireless network as well. He also wants to be able to watch internet/movies on his NON wireless tvs. I have never done a job like this before. Should i recommend a media server? How should i go about doing this?

You might want to start by listing what equipment he has, this will determine what can be done toward this goal.

There are DVD players, HDTVs and other source devices which have wifi capabilities, and a great deal which don't.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
