    What you want is a good wireless router and you can tie all them together as I have. I just purchased a CISCO EA4500 Gigabit router along with a TrendNet 8 port Gigabit switch and currently have the following in my network:

    Wired Connections:
    4 Desktop computers
    2 Laptops (also work wireless)
    1 Brother 5370DW Laser Printer (could be wireless)
    1 WD-NetCenter NAS drive
    1 Samsung BD-C5500c blueray player

    2 Galaxy S2 cell phones
    1 Vizio VTab1008 Android Tablet
    1 Kindle Fire HD 7" Android Tablet

    It all works just fine.

    My next project is getting the personal cloud that the router supports up and working.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    Maybe you need someone to hold your hand. If you are willing to pay for help try Computer Care Kelowna in your area.
    Cate participates in podcasts and has a Youtube channel.

    I am not affiliated with Computer Care Kelowna...I am in Miami, she is in British Columbia, CA
