I've got cat5e cables and jacks in walls. What should I do to use those for ethernet? Attached is a picture of my cables in my basement. (sorry, the wiring is messy - some company is not doing it neatly.)
The background is that I originally used home phone via those jacks in walls. Originally I had Internet and home phone with one company, but the cables and jacks were used for home phones instead of ethernet. Then I switched my home Internet plan to another company for their fibre and discontinued the home phone.
To use those cables for ethernet, I think I need to disconnect those cat5e cables from that panel, add ethernet cable jacks at the ends of the cables, and plug those jacks into my router/modem.
I don't have a home phone any more. Why are those cables still connected to a panel? Is it OK for me to disconnect those then I can use those cables for ethernet?
