Xbox running XBMC
Media Center PC (can be a server)
Wife's laptop (only needs internet access)
I'm not afraid to wire the house so I don't need a wireless network (plus I want to keep broadband speed on all devices). What's the most efficient setup?

get a wireless router. Most of them have 4 lan ethernet connections and 1 wlan connection. The box arranges the traffic between all the units on the lan, and sends traffic to and from the internet when needed. Just make sure the lan ports are 100Mbit. If they aren't, get a 100Mbit switch, and connect one of the switch ports to one of the lan router ports. The wireless function will sooner or later become handy. The Laptop will probably have a wifi network adapter. Using wireless, you can access the Internet with it, without the need for a network cable connection. If you don't use wireless, you can always disable it if you feel safer without it.
