  I'm unclear of your question.

Are you getting DSL internet? If so, that comes in on the same line as
your phone service, no additional wiring is needed. You will need to
put a "filter" into each jack that has a phone. The "filter" plugs into
the jack and the phone plugs into the filter. The filters are (usually)
provived by the internet provider.

I'm not sure what you mean about the "network connections".

If you are extending a line, use a twisted pair or CAT 3  (or 5) available at hardware or electronic stores.

These would be attached to the green and red wires in the telephone jack.(line one)

If you are adding a SECOND phone line for regular "dial-up",I would need to know what color wires come off the pole.
