Re: tool-less vs. punch-down CAT jacks + cables

Realistically it won't make any difference if you use a different jack. You can't get it certified, but that's a different story.
What makes most difference is the way it is being wired. Keep the wires short and twisted as much as possible and you'll be good.
Don't use patch cables, they are stranded and you may not get a good punch.

Why would anyone want to get their wiring inside their house "certified"? That's an interesting statement.

Not inside the house, but in general (ex installing in a commercial environment and labeling it as a CAT6).
