New Installation switching from cable
I am considering switching to U-verse and internet from cable. I want to make sure I have the best layout/installation for optimally service. I have a few question, you can see my sketch for reference:
1) I currently have my cable modem and router in my den, would that be the best location for the RG and WI-FI gateway? Or, should I have the RG near the location where telephone enters my house.
1a) The den is the best location for WI-FI, If the best location for RG is near entry to the house could I run CAT5 from the RG to the WI-FI in the den?
1c) I read the DVR should be near the RG. If I have the RG in the den, would it be best to have the DVR there even though there is not TV. I can get an extra set-top box since 4 are included in the current promotion.
2) I currently have several cable jacks in the house but, they are 20 year old RG59. Will they still be acceptable to use or should I make sure CAT5 is installed. I have a basement under the house it would not be too much effort to run new CAT5 is that is the better way to go.
3) Where I have TV3 I do not have a cable jack. Should I have cable installed or do the wireless receivers work equally as well.
Thanks, I would appreciate any input you can provide before I get the equipment installed.
