I've researched quite a bit and have found this forum very helpful. However, I just can't wrap my brain around my situation. Any help would be so greatly appreciated. I apologize in advance for any misuse of the proper terminology. I've included a picture of my current structured wiring setup. In each of the rooms of my house are a telephone line (over cat 5e), a coax line and disconnected cat5e line. My goal is to connect the extra cat5e lines for a wired network with 8 terminations. It appears that I have no data module at the current time. So I need that, right? Suggestions, Then, I how do I go about setting up the network? Currently the modem and router are in an upstairs room where the main computer is. Can/should I move them to the structured wiring closet? Another question: any idea what the coax line into the 3-way splitter that has nothing going out is for? It just bothers me to think my home a/v distribution has got such untapped potential. Makes me want to do something about it. Thanks again for any help and suggestions you all can give.
