I did exactly the same but in the router there is one ethernet cable from telephone jack and no other spot for me to put the ethernet cable in. So, what to do here? but for PC B there is a spot in the other room with a jack that has the ethernet cable connected to my PC.
okay so if i am reading this correctly is that you are wanting to use a telephone cable
so.............. no. a telephone jack is a RJ-11 cable and its only 4 pins at max. an RJ-45 is 8 pins, the way you have it described you would need a modem on either side (at each computer)
and then the data transmission rates would suck
your best bet is to run the ethernet cable
i have some ideas for that
if you dont need that telephone cable, then you could take off the wall plates, tape a ethernet cable to the end of the telephone cable. go to your destination and pull the cable through which will run the ethernet cable in the same route as your telephone cable
now if you need to keep that phone cable, then just use it as a guide
by using tape to attach a length of rope long enough for the run to one end, then pull it to your destination and then tape the ethernet cable to the combo and pull it back using the rope
which will give you exactly what you need for the cost of a cable
compaired to 2 phone modems

towards the router the setup is something like this http://images.ncix.com/forumimages/A...B00FC762E7.jpg
The actual CABLE connected and then here is one telephone jack and one ethernet...(the image is not exactly what I have but It is similar) but in the other two rooms with PC A and PC B I have this but without the cable connected port...so one for tele and one for ethernet. Because in that telephone jack there is only one ethernet port (where the router is) could this be a problem of my computers only detecting one ethernet computer and not two, which is PC A only and NOT PC B. PC B is just not detected at all even if the PC A is shut down.
may be something like this would help me? http://di1-3.shoppingshadow.com/imag...od+Dplx+Ja.jpg
at the routers end (double Ethernet port, extension) that I will plug in to that ethernet port (in wall ethernet jack) so I will have two ethernet ports where I can then connect TWO ethernet cables in these two ethernet ports then I think PCA and PC B both should be able to connect with the internet..and no extra big wires / running wires around the home be needed..correct?
your 'double ethernet port' is a RJ-11 splitter
which if you try to split the RJ-45 cable like that the packet will get confused and you wont get any internet at all
so no it wont work
if you dont want wires then get a wireless router and wireless USB adapters
your not giving us many choices to work with
