Change of pace

I was able to finally purchase a small clamp rack, and it should hold almost all I need it to. Hopefully that can go up in the morning. I don’t know what else will get done, because it’s that time of the year where it’s almost too hot to do anything. No AC makes me very unproductive.

So, attention turns elsewhere. This is the end of the woodworking content, if that’s important to you.

I’ve been wanting to set up a home network ever since I moved in, and it’s about that time. We’ve been doing other upgrades, and this is a natural progression. This post is really just a catalog of my ideas that I need to incorporate.

The modem needs to relocate to the exact opposite side of the house. That’s right where the cable meets the house anyway, and it will be the easiest place to come up into the wall. With the modem is the new router which has four gigabit ports.

The longest run will be to the HT, about 50′. From the wall plate a four port gigabit switch will serve the two game machines and the DVR. The fourth port will be open for future expansion or as a port I can plug a laptop in if needed.

The other three cables will be run to the opposite side of the original room to my workstation, XBMC and sat box.

Not very exciting.
