    Chasing the Cat around the basement, Cat5e that is.

    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.

    Dave, Normally I would agree but the wife and I don't plan on staying in the house for more than 5-7 years.

    How do you like the USG Pro? I've got a USG and like it. I'm thinking about getting a Pro, so I can turn on IPS.

    I abandoned our UTP years ago. With the advancements in wireless and fewer and fewer devices having a rj45 port wired just isn't worth it.

    Install does look good

    It has been a solid unit. I only wish the SFP ports could be used on the LAN side, I believe they are working on it. I'm a big Ubiquiti fan-boy. Have 5 AP, and just ordered a 6th tonight. I have the 8 port switch that has SFP and POE. Also have the old Cloud-key and a couple of their video cameras. On the edgemax side I have 2 routers lites and a 24 port 250w POE switch. They make awesome stuff for the price.

    Given a choice, I prefer hardwired over wireless; but wireless is so convenient...when things work.
