Location: The kitten above is not on fire.
Right now I only have 2 active machines. My mom’s is in the den along with the cable modem and wireless router. My pc is in the living room on a temporary table until I get a desk. I am receiving my internet wirelessly and my mom’s pc is getting it through wired from the router.
Now pretty soon I am going to get a desk in my room and take all my computer crap up there. I also want to run a few older PIII machines as servers and just to experiment with. There I want to create a separate LAN for my servers and main pc. I just want to know what setup you would suggest.

You want the router to be at the highest point nearest a wired PC. Give the furthest PCs from the router a wireless adapter, and hardwire close ones.
