First you need to find a suitable location for your 'LAN-Central' - It's preferred that it is placed as central as possible in your house or flat. Maby close to a stairway or in a closet in your hallway is a good location. Is is from this central al your cables is going out to your different Ethernet Outlets.

When the cables is in place, it's time to connect al the Ethernet Outlets and the Patch-Panel.
Connect the wires inside each Ethernet Outlet, using the modular tool (KRONE-Tool) and the 'T568B' color markings. Follow the steps 1 to 4, as shown by the images below.
Also Take a look at the Patch panel installation, you find some nice information.
color markings inside the Ethernet Outlet
1. Strip about 30mm from the outer jacket and spread the 8 wires as shown in the image above.
2. Place each of the 8 wires according to the 'T568B' color markings.
3a. Using the modular tool (KRONE-Tool) puch down each wire in place.
