How to create a wireless network for a large house?

Can somebody explain the best way (which will give best performance) to set up a wifi network across a large house?

If money were almost no object, how would one set it up so that you could get a strong wifi signal in every room from the basement to the attic? (preferably while staying on the same wifi network eg. so that it doesn't require any skill on the part of the user to change networks etc.) The goal being to be able to watch streaming video in any room on an iPad/iPhone etc.

I am eager to learn how this is done!


P.s. Money IS an object, I would just like a starting point! Happy

Use extenders

Sometimes no matter where you place a router or what settings you tweak, there's just no way a single router can provide fast and reliable wireless throughout the entire home.The easiest and least expensive option is to place wireless extenders in your home. These devices grab an existing wireless signal and boost it, or repeat it. Since they wirelessly connect to your existing network, they need to be placed in an area that already has a solid wireless signal.
