Ok, the remodeling is about to begin. I've purchased a 100' spool of solid wire Cat-6 to extend the ethernet connection from the router in another room to a gigabit switch in the soon-to-be-remodeled family room. As soon as the cable is installed, I will wire it to the keystone jack. That would be the best time to test the connection while they are still remodeling, wiring the kitchen etc. What would be the best way to check the connection to make sure that all is well before they close everything up and move onto the next phase? I have a gigabit router on one end and will be using a gigabit switch on the other end. We have a 20Mbps DSL line and I can usually get a consistent 15-16Mbps download speed wirelessly using my ISPs speedtest app. If I get the same speeds wired, can I assume that all is well for now and the immediate future?
