Title: Programmably configurable computer network

Abstract: A programmably configurable computer network, particularly applicable to small network applications such as home networks, includes a plurality of nodes which may be implemented through wall-box sized components. The nodes may be connected through telephone wires and may also offer telephone connectors at each node. The system may be powered by a high frequency power supply which is isolated from the external telephone system using a low pass filter. In this way, the network can be automatically configured to achieve an efficient and specification compliant topology without requiring rewiring of the building.
