JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-A home networking company that last year reported $4.5 million in sales has apparently closed its doors.

The offices of E House, a two-year-old company, were closed and locked and company officials could not be reached for comment, according to a report in The Florida Times-Union.

Competitors of the company said they have been getting calls from E House customers looking for other contractors for unfinished installations of cables for high-speed Internet, video and other electronic devices.
