I have a question that maybe pretty simple for those who are little more adept at this. Recently, I've been wanting to get the Ethernet ports around my house (which was built last year) live. I have a Comcast modem which connects to a wireless router.
After researching, I've found the Structured Network Panel in my master closet. I've also researched the various ways on getting those ports connected. My only question is this.
Why are only two wires each punched down for each punch down block thing? Shouldn't all the wires for each of the cables be punched down? I'm sorry if this sounds extremely beginner.
I have no use for the phone lines, so would it be easier to cut those ends, and then terminate them all with an RJ45 connecter? Then I could add a switch.
