Originally I ran 1 LAN point to each bedroom and 2 (on different walls) into my home office, and a single run buried in conduit out to my telescope house. I did all the low voltage wiring (LAN, surround and outdoor speakers)while the house was just a bare timber frame. Purchased it in 500ft. spools. Also picked up crimping tools, wall jacks and plug ends. Keep in mind that CAT5e plug ends may not work on CAT6 despite some claims that the conductor diameters are the same. I believe the true CAT6 is 23AWG gauge wire whereas the CAT5e is 24AWG. Of course the RJ-45 end is the same. I also have added a POE switch, additional CAT6, and cameras to various locations outdoors for color/IR night cameras. Really nice not to have power outlets for cameras as it allows easier installation and the ability to put camera so that it has best vantage point.
