My D-Link DGL-4300 4 gig port +802.11g router is my friend. :)

Our house was built in 1951, and I really didn't want to mess with things too much (nor pay a contractor). The only wired run I did other than for my office was just fishing a cat-5 cable upstairs for the ReplayTV (the hole was already available, but small enough that the wire had to be fished without the cable-end on it, then a new end put on). Everything other than my office is done through secured wireless link.

We accepted an offer on our house this weekend. We close on both houses on the 9th and move the 21st. As if I wasn't busy enough... :P

You forgot to mention that your new house is ginormous. Big enough for my ego and my sense of humor at the same time.
A man has been charged after allegedly punching a 73-year-old woman in the face, breaking her nose and stabbing her in the arm with a corkscrew before hitting a second woman with a bottle at a wedding reception in the Whitsunday Islands.
