I've read through some of the discussions and for now they are way above me. Hopefully when i get into this i'll learn about ip addresses, firewalls, etc. For now i am going to establish a home network for 2-3 computers. My guess is that hardwiring, using cat-5e, has to be more reliable than wireless. Should i centralize my router and cable modem in the basement (ranch house with easy access to all but (1) room)?

Have all the cables in your house run to one room where you will have the firewall and cable/dsl modem. The cat 5 lines will plug into the router and the router will plug into the cable/dsl modem. That is the best way to do it.
