Question about Computers & Internet
We just moved into a house that is preconfigured for all jacks to be CAT 5 RJ45. The DSL modem only allows for a single PC to be connected. I have a Linksys Etherfast Cable/DSL Router and appropriate network cables/Ethernet cards, but don't want to drill any holes in walls. Is there a method to run the DSL modem to the phone input coming into the house in such way that every jack is live for phone (currently) and DSL? We have 5 PC's that need to occasionally share the DSL modem..
The simpliest way is to have a wireless/ wired 4 ports router and install it beside your modem and locate where your Cat 5 cables central end is. Identify the Cat 5s that are connected to the 5 locations of your PCs if all of them are not capable of wireless connection you need to add a switch (4 port or 8 port) which you also need to connect to one Lan port of your router.
Hope this helps.
