Hey guys, I am due to move into a new place in the coming weeks, and whilst it is being decorated etc I want to take the opportunity to get a home network in place, or at least the foundations of one. I had a quick google but couldn't find exactly what I was after, a poke in the right direction would be awesome! The basic set-up I am aiming for is as follows: Media PC - Living room Central Storage - Cupboard or Office Gaming PC (as sig) - Office My starting point is basically my gaming PC and a virgin media router out of the box but im willing to invest to get what I am looking for. Id like to be able to stream media stored centrally through either my Media PC or Gaming Rig and would like to be able to stream to both at the same time. I would also like to use the storage unit to work with CCTV recording equipment so I guess this would be some additional permanent load on it. First step is running Ethernet cables so any advice would be awesome! So I guess my questions are: How much grunt do my storage and media pc's need to perform well, old recycled bits do or something with a lot of firepower needed? (Do I need storage PC or do I just add storage to my Gaming Rig) What other equipment should I research outside of the standard router provided by my net supplier? Any particular software I should look at?
