    I have managed to setup a network in my house. My theater PC is running W7, as is my laptop, there is another laptop with vista. I have managed to get a wireless printing network working with all computers, but have had limited access to some of the hard drives. In particular i am looking to access an external docking Hard Drive station, but would like to be able to access everything from all computers.

    Also my dock drive is connected through the computer via an E-sata connection. Neither laptop has an e-sata port. Would it be faster to connect to the HD dock wirelessly through a G router, how about via a network cable, what about if I was to update to an N-router with Gigabyte switching if I have cat 6 cables?
