I find that one's choices greatly reflect on the nature of their network along with computer needs and choices.
Long before I became a LMS user, my infrastructure was already in place with my home office setup. I didn't have to change a thing. Nor do I find a reason to do so years later.
OK, well I did acquire a linear power supply to feed the cable modem and router. :)
I'd be out of luck with my current setup, at least for LMS and the Pi.
WiFi is such an awful alternative for audio, IMNSHO.
But I suppose everyone to their own poison.
Of course if I had no other choice, I'd say it's fine! ;-)
I use CAT7 with the main system. :)
I have three 802.11N WiFi access points around the house which works just fine for most applications including the garage system and outside Canary camera. Signal strength ensures buffer-free playback of 24/96 content.
Fully capable of gigabit speeds, as it turns out.
We've had the whole house wired with it since 2004 or so, using it for phone lines without a clue until the Sonic Fiber guy pointed out that I could have the whole house wired for ethernet by just replacing the wall jacks with RJ-45 sockets.
And good for 100 gigabit for up to 15 meters - the length of the run to my listening room :)
