I am thinking of setting up a network for the house because the tv, xbox, sky box and blu-ray player can all connect to the internet plus our phones and laptop. I want to set up a server for streaming movies music and photos to the tv and xbox or whatever is easier to set up networking wise, the Sky hub is behind the tv so there is only 3 ethernet ports available due to one for the wan.
The server will be upstairs in the spare room so will home plugs or ethernet cable be the best option? I think I know the answer lol. I have two spare computers that no one uses because they would rather use their phones, laptops and tablets these days so I thought I would put them to good use. My laptop is running Win 7 server running Linux Ubuntu.
There is an old RF cable in a wall socket marked RF/Radio I was thinking running a cable from it into the spare room. I can take pictures but just trying to get an idea of what to do and any sugguestions are very welcome
