Unfortunately, it seems that now some builders think that with the advent
of wireless networking, it is no longer necessary to put Ethernet network
cabling into new construction. I happen to personally think this is a
mistake. Cat5e or Cat6 network cabling would allow network speeds
significantly higher (gigabit Ethernet) than wireless is likely to be
capable of in the near future. While this sort of speed may not be
necessary for simple browsing of the Internet, it is needed for things
like streaming video files from a home's media server computer to a video
playback device. Another advantage is that wired Ethernet is
significantly less susceptible to interference and signal loss, especially
compared with wireless. Wired is also more secure than wireless.
