Installing home wired network with multiple switches

view story

http://superuser.com – I'm about to lay Gigabit network cabling in my new house. I want wired network in almost every room of the house and in some even several cables (i.e. living room with LAN for xbox/ps, video LAN cable for STB and possibly additional LAN for media server i.e. Boxee). House has three floors. But instead of leading all LAN cables to a single point in a house (meaning there would be quite a few cables coming out of the wall), I was thinking of installing: 8 port switch in basement connected to ground floor router 4 port router on ground floor + additional 8 port switch connected to router 8 por (HowTos)
