Re: Just bought a home- what does this wiring mean?
said by PhoenixDown:That is the entry point as far as I can tell. So...if I send the cable modem output via cat5e to my (wireless) router in another room (that makes sense for the same reason you mention- wireless range), how would I then get the router output (LAN) back throughout the house to all the other rooms?
If that's the entry point to the house - you could install the cable modem there and use the cat5e to get it your router.
You could install the router there as well. I didn't because I get horrible wireless as it would be in the basement.
With the wired router in the bsm't -you could install a wired (using a cat 5)access point upstairs that will provide signal to cover your other devices that are next to a cat 5 outlet.
