The last cable I pulled was a CAT5 to a room upstairs. I could never get the 
cable working with my crimped connector, so I just bought the right size 
cable with the connector attached. If reasonably priced wireless were 
available then, I would have used it. We built an addition a few years ago, 
and had that cabled for TV and cat5. 
But, I think today with decent wireless routers available for well under 
$100, it does not make sense to pull cable unless you really need the 
additional bandwidth.
