Powerline is usually the better option than wireless, plus easier to setup.


WDTV Live should be fine for the task.

If you have Coax Cable/ Cable TV already in the house, the Netgear MoCa adapters are as close to wired performance as you'll find and recent price drops on the gear now makes it the clear choice over powerline.

But you're going to have to offer up some more details about the 8yr old PC as it might not be reworkable to work as an HTPC/Server.
