In a world of blazing fast Wifi I'm still of the opinion that if a piece electronic's equipment needs to be plugged into power to stay on it should also have a hard wired network connection also. I also work from home and use my internet connection for voice and video conferencing and need a solid connection for that.
So with it being to hot today to do much of anything outside today I decided to stay in the basement and run some cable.
Last week I ordered a 1000ft box of Cat5e from Amazon and 50 bridle rings/hooks. I started by drilling pilot holes in the floor joists then screwing in the bridle hooks then it wasn't much more to pull the cable through them.
After getting 6 runs to my office, 2 for the TV in the basement and one for a wireless AP I started dressing the cable back to my make shift telco room/electrical closet. Ended up pulling about 520ft in total.
After cleaning cable runs I punched down the some keystone jacks in my office and attached the other end to my 48pt patch bay.
