|-Have ATA adapter plugged into CAT5e jack, it activates all other CAT5e jacks in the house + white phone jacks too (I am using VOIP).|
What is an "ATA adapter" and what does it do?
-Opened up a CAT5e jacks and there is only 1 shielded wire, not 2. (this information might be relevant)
Network cables have 4 pairs (8 wires) so you need to be more precise in how you describe this.
How many RJ-45 (that's what they're called, not Cat5e and phone jacks are RJ-11's) jacks are there on each faceplate? If more than one, how many pairs of wires go to each?
Do all those network jacks terminate to a patch panel somewhere in your house?
1. Is it possible to have internet and phone running through CAT5e jacks while being able to maintain >100 Mbps speed? (currently running 100 Mbps, but want to future proof house)
Yes it's possible. Typically when you have multiple cable runs like this, you terminate them all in one location on a "patch panel" You would then locate your Router or Switch beside the patch panel and run "patch cables" from the patch panel to the router/switch to provide connectivity to the outlets in the walls you wish to have activated.
Cat5e is 1000 Mbps capable so 100 Mpbs is no problem if the cables are properly punched.
2. If not, is it possible to have CAT5e dedicated to running internet and white phone jacks run phone while still being >100 Mbps? (right now they seem linked together as per mentioned above)
Again, I need a better description of the setup. Does each faceplate have one RJ-45 (network) and one RJ-11 (phone) in it? Or more than one of each? How do the wires from the network cable connect. Do you have 2 pairs (4 wires) into the network jack and 1 pair (2 wires) into the phone?
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
