At home, I have an apple wireless ethernet base station plugged into my cable
modem. Anything with a wireless card (specifically: my laptop) can speak to
the net at half a megabit, and to other wireless things at (theoretically)
11Mbit/s. Hassle with builders? Nope. Costs? UKP25 a month for the cable
modem, ~UKP230 for the base station. Results? Stunning - I've *almost* grown
out of the habit of wandering round the house with my laptop while <something
big> downloads to it... :-)
