Moving from Wireless to Wired
I zippered our Phillips 7000 DirecTivo about a year and a half ago. Iíve been using a Linksys Wireless 2.6 adapter and now need more speed so weíre moving to a wired solution. Iíll probably be fishing the cable through the walls in the next week or so and I had some questions.
1. Any recommendations on cables? I was thinking Cat5, Cat5e or Cat6 just for the purpose of future compatibility since this will probably be in the walls a long time once it is done.
2. Where is the best price to buy cable? Iíll probably need around a 60-75 foot cable.
3. Besides getting a wall outlet for both ends will I need anything else for the install?
4. As far as the Tivo itself, is the NetGear FA120 the best way to go or is there an easier/faster/cheaper adapter I should get?
Thanks in advance for the step-by-step help and advice.
