How to connect home network?

Have a question or want to start a discussion? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

My cable connection comes into the house and a coax spliter sends one signal
to my computer room
and the other signal to my media room.  The two rooms are 50' apart and I
can easily install a cat 6 cable
between them, if necessary.

In the media room I am getting more and more stuff that needs to be
connected to the internet,
such as Wii, blue ray player, receiver, etc.  In the computer room. I only
have the computer tower.

What is the best way to get this all up and running?  I suspect I need to
buy a router, right?
If so, in which room should I put it?  This is all Greek to me.

Any advice would be appreciated.
