Ethernet is the answer!
There's still a good reason to ethernet your home. Nobody has managed to eaves drop on my cat 5e connected devices yet. Although I'm fairly certain they can on my wireless WPA2-PSK network.
My plan is this: ethernet cable to the office, bedrooms, kitchen and a few in the living room. Wireless where it can't get to.
My Wii, computers, including the one that's going to go in as a Media Center, and other such devices all support hard wired ethernet.
My house is constructed in a way that running cables is easy, and when we replace the siding next year, the cable will be in.
Helecopters as I'm paranoid about network security, particularly following an incident of identity theft.
