Move from patch panel to switch

Hello - I currently have the following set up in my basement: Modem to 8 port router which has cables going into a patch panel which in turn provides internet access at 8 wall outlets throughout the house. My data/video streaming needs are expanding and I have had additional wiring pulled to the new locations. I would like to know if I can bypass the patch panel and go from the Modem to a 24 port switch to individual wall plates throughout the house.

  1. Yeah you can. The patch panel is optional. Many businesses use this type of setup for ease and whatnot, but what you want to do is perfectly acceptable for home use.
