Cabeling at home can be tricky. In this episode pokey and resno discuss some ways of creating a wired network in a residential space. Resno was kind enough to let us use his own home as the example for this discussion.

Enjoyed the two-person show

I hope to not ever have to run eth in my house :-) but really enjoyed the format of this show. The combination of master/student made for good balance.

never knew cables could be so fun

Very informative episode. Also, perhaps the largest file size for even an hour-long mp3 I've EVER seen. Good goin' guys!

brother mouse: Thanks. Your show was very good. I liked it too.

klaatu: I release it at whatever bitrate the song is in when I get it. So that I don't degrade the audio too much. But the large file size is really just needed to contain all the AWESOME! that is resno.

Considering an addendum

I'm considering to record an addendum to this, as I wired my own home during a major reconstruction; e.g. things to think about when you're cabling from the beginning.
I laid Cat 6A and RG-6 in star formation.

Cool! I'd love to hear that.

Sigg3: I mostly work in commercial and industrial spaces. I don't do a lot of residential wiring other than my own, and friends. I'd love to hear what options and factors you considered before starting.

Star topology is the only one that actually makes any sense for Ethernet cabling. I've never seen or heard of anyone doing it any differently.

I love to have a ton of extra Ethernet, and RG-6 cabling. Remember with RG-6 to disconnect all of the spares from your feed, and cap all of your unused feeds at your multipliers (or use smaller multipliers with fewer outputs). Otherwise you you'll get signal degradation. Only leave connected the ones you're actually using.

I'm looking forward to hearing your episode.

Would love to hear the followup

First one was really interesting, the second should be awesome too.

Thanks!
