Hi all
 
I tried doing some of my own research but got confused by all the jargon thrown around on google.
Recently bought a laptop for gaming and I’m looking to pl happywheels  on ethernet as i hear it’s a lot better than wifi. Problem is the modem is on my first floor and I want to play on the 2nd floor in my bedroom. I’ve went around the house and found this closet which from some research I’ve found has something to do with wiring and that I’d have to eventually hook stuff up? Here’s the modem which is on the main floor  And the Ethernet wall jack in my room How do I go about setting this all up?

 

 
 
Thanks in advance!

It looks as if all the equipment is set up, so all you need to do is get an ethernet patch cable of sufficient length and plug one end into the wall plug and the other end into your laptop.

Agree with Sticknstone, seems like all the wall plugs are wired, so just plug into one and your good to go as long as the splitter is wired to the modem. If it was done all at the same time it shouldbe wired right, if not you may have to run a cable from the modem to the splitter which will feed your wall plugs, happy surfing.

With Windows 10, it’s as simple as flipping a single switch that you can find at Settings > Network & Internet > Mobile Hotspot. In Windows 7 or 8, you can go through the steps to create an ad-hoc network or you can use a free tool named Virtual Router to get the job done simply. On a Mac, you’ll use the “Internet Sharing” feature share that wired connection and turn your Mac into a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. So long as your Mac has a both an Ethernet and wireless adapter, it’s all pretty straightforward.
