l am setting up a very basic network but still need to be reassured, my network consists of all the following which should all be used:
  • 6 computers
  • 24 port switch
  • 24 port pathcpanel
  • router
  • modem
  • one storage rack
The only piece that has put me off is the patch panel as l honestly and embarrassingly never used one. Anyway may you please explain to me how to get it all to work together. Many thanks!

Dear Patch Panel is used to terminate all the UTP cables installed for the users. You are going to install a CAT6 UTP cable from the users worksatation to the server room. All UTP cables in the server room are terminated in a patch panel. Do check this link it will be helpful for you: UTP patch panel termination.
