I got the box installed and all of the wires run, but now I need to terminate everything in the box. What would your recommend that wont make me go broke???


I have the following:


9 cat5e data/phone drops

5 rg6 cable drops


The box that I installed is the Leviton 280 with a 2" extension.


What would be my best bet for patch panel??? I dont have a home phone so all the drops will be data right now, but if we decide to get a home phone I want to be able to pick and choose.


Any recommendations???

Well, there's lots of different ways to go, but probably the easiest is this:

With an additional:

To get you to 12 ports.


If you want to use it as a data port, simply add a patch cord to your router/switch/hub. If you want to use it as a phone port, you add a small jumper between the two modules, and the incoming telco line goes on the top punchdown of the phone module.


You can terminate the 5 RG6 drops on the splitter, assuming you are using them for standard RF cable. If you have something else in mind, then I recommend this instead:

It is a multimedia adapter plate that you stick some F-type coax connectors into (see lower catalog link). Then you just patch from that to whatever you need with coax cables.
