I recently purchased a new home and it came with ethernet ports in every room. I am assuming it is pre-wired but will obviously have to verify. From what I understand, each outlet either is, or should be, wired (behind the walls) into some central "hub" - correct?
So my question is, assuming everything is wired up, how do I "power" each ethernet port to be internet-ready?
I currently have cable hooked up to a modem and the modem is connected to my wireless router with an ethernet cable. I'm using wireless but the signal is weak upstairs.
Is it as simple as hooking up one of the router's ethernet output ports to any one of my ethernet outlets, and somehow the rest become internet ready? I'm confused on how to get internet access supplied to the various outlets.
