Trying to use built in ethernet ports at new apartment

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just moved into an apartment that has cat 5e ethernet ports in every room and they have their location labeled. I was hoping to connect my router and use them to connect. Right now I have my cable coming in near location one and split to cable box and modem/router, and I have that router plugged in via ethernet cord into the location one jack. Is there a way to have this feed the others? At location 5 there is a jack that says data, a jack that says phone, and then an unlabeled ethernet port below those. Do I need to plug it in there? Attached is pictures of my box and location 5. I was hoping there was a way to just take location 1 and somehow connect it to the locations I want.

After googling more about it, I see that they are setup for phone and I would need to put ends on the ethernet cords and plug them into a switch, would I still be able to use the security system if that was the case?
