how to wire whole house with ethernet ports?
Recently purchased an older home and will HAVE to run hard lines for internet access; both my spouse and I work from home currently and wireless is not an viable option for that, though will still want to have wireless in common areas.
total novice at what we'll need to make this look semi professional: switch?? routers? etc...
Limited reading on the internet sounds like this should be able to be done by us and lead me to a setup like this with cable internet:
Cable Modem connected to a 16 port switch (figure we will run 9/10 lines, might as well have some expansion space if needed). one of those lines run to the main living space where the wireless router would be. want to run lines for the Roku and smart tv/dvd players too since everything is clearer with hard lines.
So there is my question and possible layout...... looking for recommendations on correct layout and equipment. Thanks all!
