k, so i moved into my current apartment a few months back and one of the plus's i saw when i checked it out was network drops/plates in every room, most with multiple. with 3 pc's, 2 laptops, a media center, xbox 360 and a wii, it was a definate plus (would've taken it anyways, but thats just cool!).
so after i moved in a tried hooking things up to it a few ways, and nothing. the super of the building doesnt know anything about them, and as far as he knows, this is the only unit in the building with them. he gave us the number of the cable/net installer that usually does this building and he knows nothing either.
on top of that, i'm unable to find anywhere for a central hub/access point, it's just drops throughout the entire apartment. then i figured i'd take aplate off to make sure they were even wired, and they are.
so i know a bunch of you out there work somewhat in the field (im in it, but as a graphic designer, i let techs hook my stuff up, haha). anyone have any ideas, things to try, to look for, etc...?
Well the obvious first, have you created a network? Just because you connect things doesn't mean that they will talk to each other.
