Hi,

I'm thinking of wiring up my home with netowrk sockets. But I can't decide whether to use long (30m) patch cables or buy 60m of cable on a reel and wire it into sockets.

Which is better?

Thanks

James

Hardly worth making them up yourself considering how cheaply you can buy readymade. I`ve just bought 10 mtr cables @ £3-23 each +vat from click here. Plus £2-99 P&P. They come in various lengths. Meshuga.

Is it really worthwhile to run cables all over the place when wireless can be purchased at a reasonable price.

Thanks for your replies.

I have thought about wireless, but I live in an old house (200 years) therefore it has very thick walls (1m+) so I don't think that wireless will work very well.

Regards

wireless won,t go through stone or brick walls at all if the old house has these cable would be the route.

If have bought some cable and sockets and a hub and am installing them whilst typing this.

I have one questtion: when I connect the plug connectors to the wire do I have to use a crimping tool or can I just use pliers?

Thanks

James
