Ethernet and DVR
We recently built a new home. Everyone room in the house has cat-5 and ethernet jacks. The wires for each room go into the basement to our mechanical room.
There is a live ethernet connection that goes into my study. It is connected to the modem and provides wireless for the whole house. A desktop computer is also connected to the modem. This is the computer that we use for downloading music and videos, so we need the wired connection.
Dish Network came to install the dvr, but they were unable to connect it to the Internet.
My question is how can I hook up the dvr to the Internet without having to pay for a new internet hook-up. Is this something that I can do. I have an Lg Smart Tv that picks up wireless, but this does not help me to get Dish services like Blockbuster.
My second question is that all the cat-5 wires and ethernet wires go to a single location, and they are just hanging there. Can someone recommend a panel and a website that provides some direction for installing the panel?
I would appreciate any guidance.
