said by TheMG:You are 100% right there. I am currently using MOCA in almost every room and have a 4 port switch there. With all of the HD Video streaming and whatever else, There has never been a speed issue... And the cost was less then 50 bucks per room
Considering the low cost of small, unmanaged gigabit switches these days, I would never run so many cables to the same room. A couple of jacks is enough, then a network switch if any more are needed.
Hint: you can get a 5-port gigE switch for $20. Probably cheaper than the cost of those 26 redundant runs of CAT6!
