An answer please.
We have added a couple of offices with 16 ethernet sockets and we run the CAT6 wires through the wall to the ethernet sockets on one end, and the other end we put the Ethernet Plug Head RJ45. So my question is that can we buy a 24 port switch and run an ethernet cable from the router to the switch so that the other 16 sockets will have internet or we need something else other than this switch (operation) like another new patch panel for example.
Thank you in advance

Yes one line from router to switch

Yes to 24 port switch

Proper wiring goes from wall outlet to patch panel.

Network cord connects pc to outlet

Network cords connects patch panel to switch

Network cord connects switch to router.
