I have a ethernet connection in each room of my house. Connecting these cables to each other I have a pannel in the garage that they all connect to, bare wire, like horizontal metal plates with slots in them for the wires to slide. I would like to directly connect one room to another. Can anyone tell me how to do this. I thought I had the cable guy come out and do it, but it does not work. It looked like he just made sure the wires from each cable were in the same slots, then put a metal cap on them. Please help.
