How to connect residential gateway(RG) at structured wiring panel for internet and uverse voice
I have a Leviton structured wiring panel located in the middle of a newly constructed home. All of the CAT6 ethernet cable from the wall jacks (phone and data) is routed to the structured wiring panel. There are currently no data or phone modules installed in the structured wiring panel. I have a single CAT 6 cable running from the home exterior phone box (NID?) to the structured panel. What would the connection options look like from the NID to the RG(or structured panel) and out to the RJ11 phone jacks? Should the CAT 6 cable connect directly to the RG data port and how is the VOIP signal distributed to the 4 phone wall jacks located throughout the house? Do I need or should I have a phone module or phone punchdown block installed in wiring panel that the RG phone data port connects to?
