Re: small hardwired network
I was thinking of setting up a structured wiring panel in the basement where my dsl, phone, and satellite connections are. I looked at some of the panels that are made by Levitron and also Pass and Seymour. They sell all kinds of expansion modules and such for all of the wired connections in the house. I saw a module that splits the cat 5 connections from the router to 4 or 5 different computers. Is this the way I should do it or should I buy another router that has the ports built in? I read on another site that if you use the wrong type of connection for the computers on the network then you risk opening your files and printer sharing connections to the whole internet. I don't know if this is the same thing that they were referring to though. Thanks
