A customer has asked me to install a home Ethernet network for their internet access (they do not want to use wireless).

The network will consist of 3 access points, 1 desktop PC, 1 laptop PC and a Xbox 360.

I am going to use Cat5e RJ45 cables and sockets etc.

1) Can anyone recommend the best router to use?

2) Can anyone suggest somewhere to find a table containing
space/fill factor info. for min-trunking Cat5e able capacity?

3) What type of certification would be appropriate for this type
of installation?

Any help appreciated.

your information is not sufficient for a proper answer. Anyhow, there are so many prodcts and my experiance is with Cisco Routers and they are good, but expencive. There are other low end product such as Linksys, D-Link etc. They are also good for a home user.

The space/fill depends on the product you select since size of the cables are varies from product to product. Please refer manufacturer spec for this.

TIA/EIA 568B are the genreal standards to follow.
