I put all of my gear (cable router, switch, cables out to rooms) in the
laundry room,
which is the center of our house. Everything was cabled using the crawlspace
... ugh.
I'm no pro, and I'll be calling one to do the next house.
Got some ideas from this site: http://www.swhowto.com/

There's a TriLUG'er (who's fond of good beer) that you may want to reach out
to. ;)
