Thanks to all who answered on this. I have some great ideas to try.

FWIW, I scopped out the house and I *could* actually run cat 5 ... drill
ceiling to closet floor above, up the back of the closet into the attic,
over, and down into the study closet where the router lives.

But I'll try a hotter wireless card first.

As for the good performance, I realized years ago that ethernet on a 6
machine home network usually has all the bandwidth to give at any given

It's really nice when your problems migrate from making it work at all to
making it work better :-)
