      Would it not be easier to just have a dumb router with a single Ethernet-out (Like a [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/ZyXEL-Prestige-660RU-T1-Ethernet-Router/dp/B001A5SXOO"]ZyXel Prestige[/ame]) running to a switch which then takes care of the routing/wireless duties? One less device in the chain?

      That's effectively what I have.

      My set up is:

      In loft:
      Sagem 2504n (modem and DHCP server) 1 ethernet to WNR1043
      TP-Link WNR1043 (switch and wireless) ethernet from Sagem, to switch in lounge, to TV in lounge, to wall plate in bedroom 3

      In lounge:
      TP-Link 8 port G/bit switch

      Meant to ask in your other thread, you said you had the master moved to the loft - any reason why? If you were getting it moved why not just move it to the lounge and just have the router to the switch?

      The house is a new build and I wanted to have the best connection possible my side, as well as not having boxes everywhere. So, my cabling starts (all cat5e) between where BT's comes out of the street and the outside of the house.
      The switch would be up there too but, it's only required for all the ethernet enabled kit in the lounge and it's out of sight there.

      I've basically cabled everything directly from the loft that was possible (and sensible). For example, each bedroom has two ethernet ports, the IPTV's in the lounge and dining room are wired directly to the loft as well as the switch in the lounge and one extra ethernet cable for redundancy.

      Cat5e cable is cheap and as I had the opportunity to run all the cable and have it hidden, I took it.
      I had all the home cinema and Sky TV cables run and hidden too but, that's a different discussion.
