All my wiring is located in a utlitly room with breaker panel, WH & heating system
So I'm not too worried about looks
I used large wire staples to thread my CAT3 (phone) & Network wires
I had intended to frame the whole wiring setup with 1x6's & pout a door on
Instead I'm keeping my eye on craigslist for a small network rack someone may gte rid of
I have seen them in the past for free

CAT3 phone....just a terminal block

CAT6 patch panels for PC Network:

My Cable (FIOS) is about 4' away on the ceiling
I just use the cable staples made for coax
I didn't want the video anywhere near the panel & electric wires
Only 4 connected at present....I'll need to upgrade in the future when we get the 5th TV connected & get a 6th TV
