Anyone know someone or recommend someone who does network cabling in New Plymouth for residential? I am hoping to get some quotes for what it will cost me to terminate the cabling, I could do it myself but dont have the tools to do most of it, but I'm going to be running the cables.

Cheers

Buy the tools with what you would pay someone to do this, then you have the tools if you want to change anything in future / do this again.

I would but I'd rather it done 'professionally'
Don't trust myself with a drill going through floor boards etc and dodging power cables behind the walls.

Also if anything isn't working properly it's there job to fix it rather than mine.

do you just want rj45 ends put on the cables? or do you need the cables run as well? do you want wall mount panels if not rj45 ends, or do you want floor mount ones? how many rooms do you need done?

just you also said you were running the cables, but then you said you dont want to drill holes or dodge power cables, so that sounds like they havent been run.

I haven't run the cables yet, just finishing my plans and brought a patch panel and wall rack.

I'm wanting to work out whether I can run the cables myself and get someone in to drill some holes and terminate the end to the walls or just get someone in to do the whole lot for me.

Then your "pull" won't be very far without doing the drilling at either end.
Are you planning on leaving the cable ends in a pile at each outlet under the floor?
Leaving lots of slack or pull boxes at the patch panel end for the installer to pull the remainder to the outlet?

I think your cabling would be more annoying than helpful to an installer (not trying to be rude). The only way it could be helpful would be if the house is being built and you are doing a prewire.

I did mine myself only after a few weekends learning.
One drill hole came up through the floorboards by accident, but it's no big deal really. Little things like that can be fixed. Be brave!
You own the house right? :p

I dont really like doing cabling, its more effort than what you can charge for - not to mention dirty if you have to go in roofs or under houses, however im happy to terminate all the ends for you, etc if you run the cables, I work local and live in Inglewood.

But that's cheating - it's a screencap from a citrix session, on a fibre link to the speedtest server :P
