Oh gods, can I agree with this. Our house was already built when
we bought it (it was new, but already finished). I would have rather
built, but we got an insane deal because it had sat for a while and the
builder wanted to get rid of it.
Anyways, we put in ethernet after we bought it (this was three years
ago, or so), and it was a -lot- of work. We're wireless as cheap (and
fast) then as it is now, I would have never done it. The advice about
the pipes is nice, though, and I'll do that with our next house.
