Hey everyone, just wanted to solicit some help/opinions on how to set up my network for my new house. Like most new houses, the main distro panel is in the master bedroom closet (not my office where I would have liked it to be). All of my ethernet connections will terminate in this box. My ISP will also more than likely show up in this box as well. So as far a connections there will be:
1 X - ISP = 1Gb
2 X - APs = 2.5Gb
4 X- IP Cameras = 1Gb
10 X - LAN drops = 1Gb
I was able to get the builder to run 2 Cat6 cables from the distro box to my office. So of the 10 LAN drops, two of them are to the office.
I have a custom build pfSense box right now but I was thinking of going with the Netgate 6100 in the new house. So I was thinking of just putting the 6100 and some kind of multi speed switch in the distro box. The box is about 13"X 26". And then just put some kind of multi speed switch down in my office where my server and storage (plex media and security camera) will live.
So with all that said, is there a clean way to do this?
