The only reason for the 30ft cable length - the maximum cable I can 
cobble together at
the moment. This is a startup church - as funds are available - there 
is reimbursement -and I am currently looking for a new job. When I get 
some more money - I will definitely buy some more cable.

The reason that I am using my laptop is that it costs me nothing at the 
moment. Thanks
for this idea - I will look at it in future. I was trying to go 
wireless - so that I don't have other people 'tripping' over the wires. 
At the moment - I am shooting for low cost - so that will be the longer
