Help on Wiring a Home with Ethernet - Page 3

post #21 of 25
cat 6 is just cat 5 with an outer shield and minimally separated pairs around a plastic core. the hz loss in the short runs of your home is minimal. Most of it resulting from the emf of power wiring (the interior core does little to shield one pair from another) a 25% increase in cost doesn't really warrant the 5% decrease in signal degradation. Run the cat 5 smart and you will get the same performance out of it without spending the extra buck's.

FYI the majority of flux lines caused by the emf in a 120 volt circuit radiate within about a 8 inch diameter of the circuit, stay out side of that while running the cable and you should be fine.

What i have done for a custumor once was simple and very easy.

Place the incoming internet + server + switch in that place where all your electrics and fuses are [sorry dont know the english name for it ]

Then drill a hole in the floor and put all the wires underneath your home [you can put them in pvc tubing for extra protection]
Where you want a network cable in any room just drill a hole in the floor there [very close to a wall] and guide a wire from the switch to that room underneath your home, do this for every room you want your network to be in.

Sounds like a big effort but its actually really easy and is probably the cleanest looking solution.

For the upstairs its basicly the same, guide 1 cable up and put a a switch in a local area. Guide all your cable's upstairs to that switch. Route them under the ceiling if you can or maybe under your floor. If your floor is out of concrete you can get a sort of grinder thing that saws a line in the concrete big enough for pvc tubing.

This is a good solution I have used as well. Not sure where OP is located at, but most new homes in the USA do not have crawlspaces or basements to do this in.

Shielding doesn't make it cat6. UTP is UTP.
If it's under $100, I think it's worth it to not have to pull it twice.

I have a spool of FTP, gel filled, UV resistant, oil resistant, direct burial cat5e that cost $250.


If you decide to run HDMI over category cable, you're much better off using cat6 than 5e. That extra "little bit" of bandwidth makes quite a difference.

Holy overkill.

For 1Gbps transfers Cat5e is perfectly fine. It's rated for it, it does just fine. Save the $$ and buy some beer.
