Finally building my house. I'm trying to decide if it would be smarter to buy an 8 port 10/100/1000 switch and run cat 6 from my utility room to each room then into a hub or if I should go with a 24 port 10/100/1000 switch and make multiple runs to each room. I'm not looking for anything fancy or real technical. Currently all my needs are connectivity for surfing/gaming. Possibly in the future I will venture into streaming audio and video, NAS and home theater components that are web enabled but right now all I really need is relieable connectivity. Any input is greatly appreciated.
