I want to wire my house with ethernet (Tivo and Xbox on wireless are OK but not great), but I want to learn how to do it myself. Here are some notes and links.
- How to make your own Ethernet patch cord – This one describes the wiring. And here’s another wiring tutorial. And another.
- Installing a Home Network Part 2 -This one describes how to do the actual jack installation.
- Here’s an example of a home network with a parts list.
- A FAQ with a nice set of DO’s and DONT’s.
- Wolfgang Rupprecht’s experience wiring a california home (through the ceiling instead of under the house). Relevant to my ranch-style house. He also redid his phone wiring which I won’t need to do. Going through the same faceplates as the TV cable sounds interesting though.
I’ll update this with my experiences as I make some progress.
