I've decided that I will be starting at the rear of the van, since the entertainment system stopped working.
Now, since my van has been previously running a full size 13" TV, 12v VCR, and one gaming console (PS2, GameCube, and N64) at the same time, do you see it necessary to upgrade the big 3?
Also, I've come up with a simple diagram of how everything will connect. I have a few questions about antennas and power.
1. Does anyone have a recommendation on the wifi card I should use? If my laptop has built-in wifi reception, can I upgrade it to use an external antenna?
2. Can I use a CB antenna to function with anything (wifi, TV, or radio)? I'm asking about RadioShack's 102" whip antenna.
3. As for power, anyone care to share how they are powering everything?
