My wife and I have just purchased a new home (built in 1999) and will be moving in after Christmas. I am considering hiring someone to pull network cabling throughout the whole house. I am going to ask for Cat6 cabling to be run to every location where there is a cable TV jack -- which is every single room in the house.
I have never done this before, nor have I ever built a home network more elaborate than a couple switches and maybe a dozen cables just thrown on the floor. My question is, when contracting someone to build a permanent installation, are there any things in particular that I need to be aware of? I realize this a pretty open-ended question. I've done some research, but because of time constraints (a few days, maybe 2 weeks) I don't think I can learn everything I need to learn on my own in order to be pro in time for this job.
I'm happy to answer any questions if I've not provided the right kind of information.
