Not sure what it was but I felt like I had things to do today 🙂 I re-caulked the kitchen sink (twice), amazing what masking tape can do to make the job a lot easier.
I took a trip to Home Depot to buy a few things for my next project:
- 50 feet of indoor/outdoor cat 5e cable
- two cat 5e jacks
- two f-connectors
- two 4 port wall plates
I started the project, running ethernet to the living room where the TV and Playstation 3 (PS3) are. I got tired of the lag while streaming content to the PS3. I installed a new 4 port jack in the bedroom where the cable comes into the house, it has a coax and an ethernet port, and two empty spots for ‘upgrading later’. I bought 50 feet of outdoor cat 5 cable and scoped out the path I plan to run it along. I also replaced the Linksys BEFSR41 router (being used as a switch) with a D-Link DGS-2208 8 port gigabit switch. The hard part is still left to do, the actual running of the cable, crawling around in the dirty crawl space 🙂 and run it up next to the TV.
And finally, I booked the beach house for our summer vacation this year.
