Thankx and appreciate of your reply.
I still have some questions. Before going on to it, this is my first time doing this and so there might be a situation you may feel the question is 'stupid'...but I just wanna make sure before I start doing anything...hope you don't mind
My house has the Cat5e cables installed in each room and all connect to the hub which is in basement. Last night, I opened one of the wall plate (phone) and noticed only a pair of cables which is blue/white is used...same as the other end in the basement. So, what I wanna do is (each room) to change the wall plate to 2 ports wall plate...one for data where another for voice.
My question is: Does the normal phone cable work if I plug it into the Cat5e keystone jack (If the wall plate has 2 cat5e keystone jacks)? else i would need to get a wall plate with one cat5e and one cat3 keystone jack.
"My patch panel has 2 rows of 12 ports. So i designated the top ports to be data. So, when I connected the cable, i terminated the 3 paris on top, and extended one pair to the bottom row. " I assuming the sentence refer to the hub on basement right? I am not quit understand this part. Why do you use a 12 ports patch panel?
I am thinking to make the another 3 pairs on one rj45 head and plug into a 4-port linksys router...the linksys router will connect to the rogers modem. so this way...all the cat5e cables from each room go to basement will connect to the linksys router..
According to your question above, if you have 2 rows on the panel...each row with 6 ports..what do you mean terminate 3 pairs on top? top of the panel?
Again...thx...I am getting close...will plan to do this or next week...after i gather enough or info..really appreciate..
