I have a new house that I believe my alarm system has changed my network design so that it does not work. The way that the low voltage contractor was supposed to setup my network was that one of the network outlets in my office was to connect to my router. From this connection all the other network outlets was supposed to work. I have Direct TV setup on three of my five coax cable connection and one of the connections goes to Cable Company for high speed Internet. My alarm system was supposed to work on my telephone line but I was getting my telephone from my cable company. I believe that my alarm system has changed my network connections to telephone connections. Any suggestions on what I should do to design this system like I need?
I want to have not only a wired network connection but I also want wireless router for our laptops. Any suggestion on how I should configure this? Do I need a switch, patch panel or hub? How should I set these up? I have attached a picture of what is inside my box.
