Guys,

I use Phonex's Neverwire 14 (www.phonex.com) to connect my SliMP3 to the
network. It theoretically has a 14Mbps throughput but network testing
utilities show an effective 6.5Mbps.

My home has steel reinforced concrete walls which weren't conducive to
wireless networking (even the cordless phone has issues wandering from room
to room).

I love my SliMP3....

David,

You might want to look into homeplug (ethernet bridging over the power
lines) as an alternative.
