I second all that Andy says.  My house has 3 roving computers being used
by 5 people.  It's a busy network with an Empire Earth match contending
with an English paper.  Shared printers on a hard wired Win98 box solves
the need for printing.  I do run ani-virus and personal firewalls on
each machine, co-ordinated with the Linksys router/fw.

|I have a home wireless network attached to a cable modem.  All

|switch.  I still have some wired connections for network
|printers and the like.  Each device on the network requires a

|setting up to work anywhere, it would be hard to go back to
|the cabled network.
