Maintain small network where you only dealing with 3 or 4 computer plus a few (around 4 laptop that use wireless connection) machines is simple. Just plug the ADSL modem and turn on dhcp with default setting but when happy problem came (grow bigger to thousand computer)  then its no more room for playing :-)

Yes, most of past problem is came with cable. Good network design without good network cable is like building sandbox. Looks strong but weak inside. Last week we have a job to see a hospital network built by someone that heavily use network cable here and there. You can drying clothes with the cable due to the way they pull the cord.

After look around for almost an hour we came with conclusion, mainly judge old cable they use. We give them online reference too (related to price and youtube videos). Some of them listed here :

Use different colour

By using different colour you can easily identify which cable work as backbone and which cable work as branch, channeled to the client.

Blue cable for backbone and other for client.
