No problem Mark & Linda.

Your new plan is good.

Best practice for enterprise LAN design is hierarchical. Adopting that to the home looks something like:

- have an aggregate switch in the basement (or you can use the router for this purpose)
- have an access switch per floor or room
- connect the access switches to the aggregate switch via high speed uplinks.

This way even if you have more than one network device in the room you only need one cable from that room to the basement.
