    Well i'm currently doing my CCNA and want to get into it. As a starter, just to get experience I am offering to do home networks for my mates at a low knock down price, around £10/20 + Parts depending on how big of a job. This will include:
    - Advice
    - Wiring the house/flat with face plates all going to a patch panel
    - Creating Patch cables
    - Setting up home networks
    - Any random small networking problems

    But I need tools. What kind am I looking at?
    - Crimping Tool - RJ45, RJ11
    - Punch Down Tool
    - Patch Panels (just a few to start with)
    - Toolbag incl. screw drivers, screws, drill, dremel et al.

    Can anyone who does this as a living or has some knowledge in this field help me out please :) I'd appreciate it very much :)

    Thanks :)
