We are getting new carpet installed in my house and we are planning on running a home network through the house. I was thinking about running ethernet cables under the side of the carpet. The would come out at the bottom of the wall in about 6 or 7 rooms, 2 - 3 downstairs, 4 or so upstairs. They would all meet under my stairs in a workgroup hub that would also be connected to a wireless router and a 12mb connection. My question is basically this: -What cable do I get? Cat 5, Cat 5e, or Cat 6? -I have a wireless router(DGL-4300) is that good enough for just basic wireless? -Which workgroup hub do I get? I want to have internet n every room and also share music and files to every room. My Budget is about 200-250 dollars. Unless I need to go higher. I was a Lowes and they had a flat ethernet cable which i thought would work well. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
