Hi Guys, 


Can anyone recommend a Wellington-based company that can provide residential structured cabling?


Normally its something I would do myself but I just don't have the time.


All I need is two rooms connected via Cat5e/6. They are separated by several rooms.

I was about to do some network cabling from one end of the house to the other. I priced up all the hardware required, then thought about the installation. Then investigated powerline adapters. I picked up a pair of passthru tp link powerlineAV adapters for $120 from Harvey Norman, I see they're cheaper at PBtech. Paired them up. Plugged in network cable. Plugged in the AP, job done. Quite impressed. Im trying to work out whether it's possible to add more to the system as it was called a starter pack. What I got was perfect for connecting up two rooms.

That is a real possibility I am just nervous about the stability.
