So I am probably going to use this Cat6 jack:

What sort of punch tool do I need?  It's just a one job then maybe some yrs after I may add a few other ports if we ever move away from RJ11, kinda difficult to install jacks to other areas without tearing down walls. 

With the face plates - what is the difference between one piece ones and two piece ones?

Hi, a 110 works best with those jacks, not too sure what you mean by one piece and two piece faceplates, do you mean one or two mech (or upto 6) then that refers to the number of keystones you can put on each faceplate.

Thanks for that :))

One piece faceplate:

Two piece faceplate:

Or is the once piece just a cover and need something else? The two piece also doesn't say 110 style or what format it is ....

Hi, no in this instance one piece means it takes one keystone jack.

The second link didn't work.

Yep - I overlooked it, the one port one says 110 style jack. Compare to the link just above here, is the difference only that this one has a extra cover that you pop on separately?

Ok, I understand now. Look, in NZ to use these faceplates is not normal, we use either PDL or Clipsal, I recommend you match your current power and light switch hardware.

Plus one million!!

Those Dynamix/Chinese faceplates look horrible next to a nice PDL faceplate.

Also a lot easier to mix and match with PDL. Handy for behind the TV where there might be RJ45, coaxial, HDMI etc.
