I am having DSL service started next month, so I am in the process of preparing the wiring. I've bought a POTS splitter that I'll use to separate the voice and data line, over at the point where the wire enters the house. Right now, I'll need to use DSL in one room where I have an office, but I am quite certain that I will be moving the office to another location in the house within a year or two.
My thought was to run the data line from the splitter, over to a patch panel, and then I can easily switch things around in the future. Is there any drawback to wiring into a patch panel, rather than directly to the room? I wasn't sure if this would introduce any noise or other potential problems. Thanks in advance.
