I have a VERY simple diagram (it may not help at all) attached. The other black boxes in the diagram are simply jacks that are "dead" and don't have any function.

ID = incoming data. It's my DSL line (phone line sized jack).

DH = Data to House. When this jack has a "source" plugged into it, several other jacks in the house go "live" with that same source (Ethernet sized jack).

I have "jumped" the ID over to he DH and now have Internet in my home office. Unfortunately, there is a console right in front of these jacks that I'd like to have plugged in via Ethernet, but I can't figure out how to do it. Surely there must be a way. Is there a splitter or some other device I could plug into the DH jack that would 1) allow data to pass through it (activating the other jacks in the house) and also 2) OUTPUT the data to the console right in front of it?

I'm open to suggestions. I'd rather not put a modem in between the ID and DH, because that would be pricey and also make a mess of things.

Please help! Thank you.
