Most houses would likely have cat5 cable, which is limited to 100Mbs
Cat5 isn't limited to 100mbs. Cat5 can give transmission rates of 1000mbs, Cat5E will definitely give him transmission rates of 1000mbs.

It's cat5e. I bought the switch you suggested as well, it had lots of good reviews on newegg as being very plug and play.

Buy 2 then. It's still the same broadcast domain, and your talking about not needing any real layer 2 management. I can appreciate wanting a single all in one device which might be ideal, but to be clear it doesn't make a lick of difference.

Didn't even notice it was out of stock.

If you don't know the answer, please do not make one up. No need for confusion.

I don't know what your definition of extremely expensive is but I wired up my house for around $800 and that's with someone crawling through my attic for me. I have 2 drops in each room 6 rooms total. So that's 12
