Home Data WiringLocal Area Network (LAN) found in offices are now an absolute necessity in a modern home. A wired home data network is more secure and reliable and faster than wireless data networks. A home data network allows high-speed internet connection sharing and printer sharing. Home Networking recommendations for a new home are:
Use Category 5 enhanced or Category 6 cables with home runs from the structured wiring panel to two locations in each room.
Co-locate the phone and data outlets.
Use quality Cat5e Connectors/Cat6 Connectors Connectors to terminate your Category rated cables.
Install the Router + Internet Gateway in one of the rooms and connect one of the outputs back to the structured wiring panel.
Install a 4/8 port ethernet switch for further distribution of the data network throughout the house.
