Have finally got my Linux box back on-line today after a couple of months of decorating and then moving house. We now have at least one CAT5 cable to every room in the house except the kitchen. This afternoon I spent some time wiring up a patch bay in a utility cupboard and checking everything out with a cable tester.
Being the unashamed geek that I am I think it’s quite cool to have wired ethernet to every room and now my Linux box (which has no wireless interface) is taking advantage of it.
The children’s computer seemed to have a lot of trouble with its wifi signal and now that’s all in the past as I can plug it into a wall socket.
Still plenty of DIY to do and boxes to unpack though …
