I don't "wire" but use an Ethernet cable from a port to another. I don't "wire" such up but there are folk in the world that do "wire" things. So with that out of the way, why not run this to your router's WAN port and try it?
I have a query on whether my idea of a wireless network would work.
I live in the UAE as an expat so I'm with Du as my provider. Now they've done a bit of a strange thing in my ceiling for the internet, so I'll start with the network infrastructure.
The apartment has ethernet ports all over for connectivity. All these internally wire back to a central location where they all feed into a what I assume is a patch panel. Now theres about 20 of these.
Here's where it gets a bit odd...
Du have put in 5 cables coming from a wall which leads into parts of the building I have obviously no access too, so instead of the normal input cable > modem > router > ports. Its already routed so to speak. Each ethernet input has a different IP.
Now, will my below plan work effectively:
Wire one of the inputs into a router, then wire an output from the router to a network switch, and link the entire patch panel into the switch.
Put 3 access points (routers converted) around my apartment wired into the ethernet ports (which intern go back to the patch panel > switch)
I know this may sound confusing, but would it work?
Thanks if you manage to comprehend this!
