This is another of those reasons, why I run (and love) pfSense. My house has CAT6 drops in every room, and I run multiple wireless networks. A 48 port managed switch patches everything together.

Oh, trust me, I'm well aware of the arcane licensing in the media world. :)

Well, while the "Cloud" storage IS an option, it's going to be tricky to use it as the end point. What I mean by that is, let's assume all of the logistical stuff is worked out, and you can store all...
