Going by many of the previous posts, I guess it's a good thing to install more wires than you think you'll ever need. This works great in a new house or during major renovations, but what's the best way to wire an older house? For example, I live in a 100+ years old house where the previous owners pulled a gazillion phone wires to everywhere, but of course no CAT5/6.
Is it feasible to have only 1 wire to each room, and then use ethernet switches (possible daisy chained)?
I just ran twelve (12) CAT6 cables from my garage to the attic for my home network. It was a pain in the @$$ but the cables are there. I am currently only going to use eight (
but only wanted to be in that crawl space for as little of time as needed. I will add a switch in the garage and let it manage all the network issues.
