Hi,

 
here are six of us at the house and each needs to have his/her own pc, using ONE DSL conection.  I just bought an 8 port router...should i run the modem into the router, router into a Switch, then have the pcs patch into their wall jacks? any ideas...also who can tell me what the proper color combination & order of puching patch cables is please?

Yes, from internet to WAN port on router, and then all PC's will connect into the switch, wether that be straight to PC's or through wall jacks or patch panels it should not matter as long as you stay within the 100 meters distance limit.
 
The order for cat5 is "White Orange,  Orange, White Green, Blue, White Blue, Green, White Brown, Brown"

If you are going to put wall jacks in, the jack itself has the colors labeled on them, so that is easy to do with your punch down tool. The cables you make should be in the order that Josh posted.
