why are you wanting to bring ethernet and phone to each?
that allow me to have effectively an ethernet splitter to bring two ethernet cables out into each computer as well as the phone line from the phone socket? Thanks
there are a few ways to accomplish this...
but the easiest would be to get an ethernet hub (cheapest), an ethernet switch (more expensive but better than a hub) or a router (most expensive of the three...but won't break the bank...and easiest for scalability)....
personally...i would suggest getting a router...as it's the easiest way to go....you could even get a wireless router so that you can have wireless if you want it in the future...
basically your connection would be....connection from wall to the modem...ethernet from the modem to the router...then ethernet or wireless from the router to the pcs....should be virtually plug and play in this setup

I personally do not like or trust WIFI, but that is ONLY my opinion. I would stay wired.
