Just a quick question...
I have a very simplistic home setup. Router is in the lounge (as that is where my telephone port is). Splits into a switch for the media devices, and a homeplug (this is my ONLY route of data through to the office that is accessible).
In the office, there's another homeplug that once again goes into a switch that is shared between my day-to-day PC and my media server.
Would it be beneficial to:
1) Put the lounge HTPC directly into the router (bypassing the hub)?
2) Move the server to the lounge?
The majority of the traffic is between HTPC and media server. Really my questions break down to
1) Does the switch between the router and the HTPC create speed issues?
2) Do the homeplugs (rated 500mbps) create speed issues?
