I apologize if this is the incorrect forum for this.

I have a question about a new install.

We are building a new home which will be ready in about 3 weeks. I will have a home office in the downstairs study. I had them wire the study closet with a coax (coming in from garage access point) and 3 CAT 5e cables terminated with RJ45. They were supposed to add a CAT 5e phone line with RJ10 to the closet but it seems they forgot.

I wanted the study closet to be the network access for the whole house. The 3 CAT 5e lines go to the Family room, the game room and to the study where my desk will be. I wanted to have a switch in that closet with the network printer, NAS etc. I wanted the NAS to be able to stream content to my family room AVR/TV. The rest of the house is wired as such: Coax from the garage access point is run to the Family room, the game room, the master bedroom and to the study closet. We have one phone line (CAT5e with RJ10) to the kitchen coming from the garage access point.

Did I mess this up? What else should I have done differently? Should I have wired in a parallel network for the content streaming? Also, I am an existing UVerse customer and I would like to transfer my service to this new house. Anyone know if they will be able to work with my setup or will I have to go back to cable internet.
