I’m doing up a bungalow I bought earlier this year. All the rooms are having extra power sockets put in, so at the same time I thought I may as well have some network ports put in as well.
I just wanted your thoughts on a good way to have this all configured / located.
At the moment, thinking of the following:
· Main WiFi router / switch – Installed in loft – TP-Link TD-W8970 (4 port gigabit switch, Wireless N)
· Living room – NAS -> switch via LAN port | PC -> switch via LAN port | TV DVR-> switch via LAN port (also Chromecast via WiFi)
· Bedroom 1 – PC / other device -> switch via LAN port
· Bedroom 2 - PC / other device -> switch via LAN port (if I upgrade to more switch ports)
Just want to check if I’m not omitting some obvious way of doing things / opportunities whilst I’m in the middle of doing this. It was all a bit unplanned, so I’m making it up as I go along. I’m not even sure what I want to do with it all, but just looking for ideas / best practise whilst I’m in the position to get stuff ‘plumbed in!’
Any comments welcome!
