      I think you'll need an ethernet crossover cable to set it up -- no great cost but I don't know if the pack includes one.

      Why fill half your house with deadly radiation, when you fill the entire house? Hell, at least you won't get a vermin problem. That setup would fry a rats brain in less than a minute. Ha ha!

      Far as I can see, it should work ok, but I have to confess that I have have always found wireless a black art. Generally the more you spent the less well it all works. The problem tends to be the more boxes you have, the more there is to go wrong.
