There is another cable that come out from this that looks similar to CAT 5 but is about twice the width with much more multi-coloured cables within. Sorry if i'm a bit vague. Can anyone say whether i will be able to install a LAN type network on this?
That box they have is likely a PBX, which is a switching device for telephones.
First off you need someone who knows what their doing to install the network, and you likely will want a domain in a buisness enviroment.
