Can I use On Q system for internet through house?

I have this box in a closet. There is power there. In several of the rooms, there are plates with three jacks. I would like to be able to have wired internet in the rooms that already have jacks. I don't know how to tell the difference between one that is just phone vs. could be used for an ethernet jack. Both fit into the jacks. Below this box is the phone line that has the DSL, so I could put the modem/router in here. Is there anywhere that will explain what these do or if it's possible to do what I want to do? I'm trying to save money by trying to figure it out myself.

You're in decent shape, the easiest way to finish this is to buy an OnQ Network Module so you can move wires from the existing Telco module you have. Then connect from the Network Module to your switch/router (and modem you can put here too) with some short RJ45 "ethernet" patch cables and you're done.

This is what you need - you can probably find it cheaper:

And the best thread to read is this one:

How does pre-wired ethernet work?
