I would be very grateful for any assistance, please!
(I know very little about all of this ) and get different answers each time I ask someone!
I have moved into a new build - there is CAT5E cabling, terminating in 'phone sockets' in 4 rooms, A,B,C,D, with the loose cable ends in the basement, E.
I have had installed Virgin Broadband, and Virgin telephone, which enter the house into Room D, close beside the CAT5E 'phone socket' in that room.
What do I need to do to give me phone and broadband network at each socket in rooms A,B,C,D?

I've got as far as - I think I need to feed the telephone and cable broadband from where they come into the house in room D, into the CAT5E cable socket in room D (how?), which takes them down to the collection of loose ends in E, and I then connect them all up to some kind of 'connector' board in E, where the ones coming in from D will then go out to A, B and C, and possibly D again?
And then at each socket, can I either get a socket with both a telephone point and a broadband network point, or do I get one of those little plug-in gizmos which allow me to plug both in.
I assume that I decide which colour wires are the cable broadband network, and which pair is the phone? At the moment, the sockets are wired with brown left out, and orange, blue and green paired from the wire upwards, into the 6 connection points inside the current sockets.
I've looked and found what I would guess would be suitable ADSL equipment, etc, but can't find anything to do with cable broadband and telephone .... please can anyone tell me how to do this, and what to buy?
