In-Wall Ethernet? Woo-hoo!

Ethernet ports in every room, but none of them work. The brains of the system which is in the wall of a closet is a Square D Multi-Link Structured Wiring System. How do I find out how it's set up and how do make it work as it should?

I've just moved into a new apartment and there are multiple ethernet jacks in each room which all lead to the wiring box in a closer. None of the jacks seem to communicate to one another. I'm familiar with networking, however not so much with raw wiring in walls which may or may not be connected to electricity (a PoE situation makes me nervous).
Each section of the split ethernet cables seem to be labeled, but I don't really know what to do from here? Ideally, I'd like each to talk to one another and I have spare switches if I need to put one in there, although I'm sure the whole purpose of the box is to take care of that.

All help is appreciated.
