We just moved into an apartment that has cat6 wiring, with 2 available jacks in 3 separate locations. There is a service box where cable comes in (I have cable internet) and a board that distributes cat6 cabling to all 3 locations. The board is a Suttle SAM-V8.
My current setup is cable modem and a ubiquiti edge router. Currently I have internet plugging in directly to the edge router - no issues there.
My question is how can I tie into the wiring that is distributed to the jacks in the apartment.
I know how to create my own patch cables based on the T568A and T568B standard and it doesn't look like these cat6 cables are wired according to these standards.
- Does this current setup support data?
- There is a line in on the Suttle board, can I put an rj45 jack on the end and plug that into my router?
- Do I have to rewire each of the 6 lines to an ethernet standard on the board?
- Can I use this board or do I need to disconnect the lines and put an rj45 jack on the end and into my router?
I found this but I don't think it answers my questions.
I've attached some pictures with annotations that I hope are helpful. Thanks in advance for the feedback.
