    I have a Wireless Router in my bedroom and my HT in my den. I use my PS3 via wireless.

    I also ran a CAT-5 cable to the den - but just one. What is my best option for "splitting" these. I could use one for my HR20, one for Denon receiver, and another extra for either PS3 or future use.

    Do I just purchase a regular router? Any specific one? Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    If I am understanding what you are saying is that you ran a cat-5 cable from one of your ports on your wireless router to your den where all of your equipment is, correct? If so, all you need to get is a switch. I would recommend an 8 port switch. Manufacture doesn't really matter, but usually I try to keep the same manufactures together, so what is the brand of your wireless router?

    Thanks. You are correct regarding my setup. My router is a modem/router combo and it is a 2Wire (from BellSouth/AT&T DSL).

    So as I understand it, this switch will enable me to get up to 8 connections from this one wire?

    Well no, you can get up to 7 devices, because one will be the cat-5 from your 2wire. Also because it is a 2wire, as far as I know they do not make a 2wire switch. You can get an linksys/netgear/ect... Since you are in ATL, I would recommend Fry's or Microcenter.
