I plan to put the terminating equipment and a router/wap (may be all in one) up in the very high ceiling of my place. I'll run a conduit down an internal wall that will connect to the wired equipment like TV and PS3, the IP phone (when I get one), and my office computer, possibly with small routers in each place if I need them. The conduit would probably be inch wide pipe, as I'm taking the linings off a room tomorrow so I can install it then with no hassles.
Even if the fibre comes in underground I can send it up that conduit to the ceiling, then back down to distribute it.
How does this sound? Things that I mostly wonder about:
- Can consumer networking equipment stand the heat in a ceiling? It probably reaches 40 degrees up there during the summer days.
- Will running an inch wide pipe inside an internal wall weaken the structure at all?
- Is there anything else I haven't though of?
