In a home data distribution box where you have your data patch panel connected to your cat5 cables running to various locations in the house, how do you set up the phone line?  Do you connect the phone line to multiple ports on a separate patch panel from which you could use patch cords to connect to your data patch panel?

Depends entirely what hardware you have. A photo might make things easier.

Hi, as steve says there are various ways of doing this, give us a photo of your current setup and we can advise.
