Wireless is easy. Wireless is not particularly secure (*understatement*) 
and is limited to 11Mbps as of right now. I have a friend who runs a 
computer-based recording studio in his home and has three recording 
stations, and the speed limitations are prohibitive for his file transfer 
needs. It's still great, though. As someone attempting to retrofit an 
older house and finding the work difficult, I like Greg's estimates and 
suggest go for as much wiring as you can manage while the house is being 
built. A wireless access point is still convenient as all h*ck.
