Splits one 4 pair category 5 (or 5E) cable into two Network connections. Works with * 100Base-T Ethernet, 10Base-T, or any connection that utilizes pins 1, 2, 3 & 6.
Sold in pairs. Use one at the hub or switch, and one at the user side. Requires two patch cables at each end (total of 4, sold separately)
Internal Printed Circuit board Structure meets EIA/TIA Cat 5E Specifications.
Works in both 568A and 568B wired systems.
Network Administrators, keep several on hand for last minute additions!
What they do: A pair of Network splitters will enable you to utilize a single Cat 5E cable run (which would ordinarily only handle a single 10/100 Base Ethernet connection) for two 10/100 Base Ethernet connections for two computers to connect onto the network. Please note that this will require an extra Hub/Switch or Router port and two additional patch cables.
What they Don't do: The Network Splitters will not create a new hub or router port. If you have a 4 Port router and need to get a 5th computer working than these splitters are not for you.
Application Notes: 1) Requires a proper full 8 pin wiring connection. 2) * For 100Base-T Ethernet, it is recommended that category 5 enhanced cable be used. 3) Longer runs, or cable runs that are less than perfect, may experience lower performance. 4) Requires two patch cables at each end (total of 4, sold separately).
