network cable wall plates already there?
My household just moved to a new house, and there are Cat 5e wall plates and wiring. It was built a year ago by a home builder, and I was wondering why there was network cable already there. They are in several rooms, and I am not undeviating where they lead to. Does anybody know what the lead to, and why they are there?
they should hint to a patch panel. probably close to your electrical panel.
It's there so you don't have to mess around with wireless. And it's alot cheaper to position it when the house was first built, rather later down the road.

How can I hook up an outdoor TV antenna to feed the signal to all my rooms using the cable connection in wall?
I in need of to hook up an outdoor antenna to watch over the air hdtv, what would be the way to hook it up and distribute the signal to all the cable wall plate that is in all my rooms? its a newer family and has coaxial cable connections in all the rooms, is there anyway i can hook up the tv to those to watch tv from my outdoor antenna?
Certainly. Make sure the antenna you select has a 75 ohm connector so you can use coaxial cable. Connect the antenna to a "splitter" at at any hardware or electronics store. Connect the cables from the various rooms to the output terminals on the splitter. If the signal is not the same enough you can use a splitter with an amplifier. Since your home is already wired, there may be a central junction already in place, in which case you simply wire the antenna to the combination.
Running power cable through the wall from behind my LCD?
Ok, i have knowledge of it is definitely a NO-NO to run my power cable through walls, but, what if I run the power cord through only to pull it out behind my entertainment center from the wall-plate my other cables earn out, and plug in a surge protector?
That is against fire system, and could void your home-owner's insurance.
An electrician can move your outlet for you for about $70.
