I recently bought a new home and there is a UStec panel box with a On-Q tecpod 810 inside the master closet. There are 4 rooms that are wired for 2 coax, 1 rj11, and 1 rj45. to this box. All the terminals plug into the tecpod

Here are pictures of thte panel box:






I have DSL installed (notmany options offered in the area), and tested it out to make sure it worked by simply connecting it directly to my PC.

Idealy, I would like to have every room live so that I can plug and play ethernet cables to connect online. I thought that I could do that by going

modem -> router -> panel

But when I do, I get "unidentified network". The modem shows activity and all the lights are lit correctly.


It is hard to find documents on a setup online so I would like some help. Thanks!

I'm not entirely familiar with network setups, but what's wrong with

Internet > Modem > Router > Hub per Room?

I am having a similar issue (which I've posted here recently). In a similar layout, I thought you could simply do:

Internet > Modem > Router > On-Q panel

Then you'd have the wireless capability that I need due to my solar system and the wired capability throughout the house through a LAN connection from the router to the On-Q input. But it doesn't work. In fact, the router doesn't even light up with the On-Q connection.

I have confirmed that if I put the modem and router downstream of the On-Q system, it works fine. But that doesn't help because I need a solar system connection and that is in the same data panel as the On-Q system. So I'm stuck, too.

BTW, this issue came up in a list that was "similar" to my own issue. After posting, I realized this is 4 years old...

Take your telco in line or (dmarc)plug it in to your modem connect your modem to your router simply unplug any cat 5 from the module and plug into your router and you will have internet.Bypass the panel it wont work your way.

Forgot this part your telco in will have a Rj45 that might not fit into your modem . DSL is a two wire so you can use any pair if you are not going to use phone lines to connect to a standard jack or put your own end on the wire and then plug into your modem.

I don't know why I didn't think of that, but it works. I can only use three more connections due to the limits of my router, but it's one more than needed. Thanks for your help! Although I wonder why it wouldn't work through the On-Q board. Seems like that's the whole reason it's there...

I believe there is a filter for that and it has something to do with the voltage that runs over the cat for phone.
