Home Network Wiring

I have been away from the Internet a lot since last Friday, and it will probably be that way for a couple weeks as we closed the deal on our house and we are moving next week.

I promised myself the last time I bought a house that I would do any of the home network wiring before I moved in, and that is one of the big projects I will be working on. Of course now with wireless networking the whole task is a lot easier than it used to be. But there is still a lot to do.

I am also considering moving to an advanced universal remote for all the components. So far the Logitech Harmony 1000 has got my interest.

I can’t wait to get in my new office, it is located between the master suite and upstairs balcony which gives me a nice quiet area to work, with a great view.

  1. Congrats on the move – actually congrats on the post-move — the move itself can be a real pain.

    I’ve done several universal remotes — I’m mostly drawn to the “gadget factor” — more often than not, once the gadget appeal wears off I find them more trouble than they are worth. My favorite so far is the “Theatre Master” line (mine’s the MX800)
    The Harmondy 1000 is very interesting and the gadget factor is again drawing me in!

    Enjoy the new digs!

  2. Hey Don, I will certainly check out the “Theatre Master” since I know you to be a master yourself of the gadgets in the home!

    I currently use a cheap store bought universal remote that actually does a pretty good job, but like you, the gadget factor is really getting to me, lol.

  3. Congrats on the move man. Moving far? The Harmony remotes are awesome. We carry them at work and I play with them every day. If you need any help with any of them let me know. I can hook you up with some experts.
    Also as for wireless networking, your “best” option right, if you plan to buy a new, faster, more secure router is the Linksys WRT600N. Its great.
