    Resolved [RESOLVED] 2 Connections from 1 Drop

    I could swear I have seen a splitter that will allow you to plug 2 devices into 1 CAT5 drop, but I cant find one anywhere. Speed is not an issue it only needs to be 10Mbs. A drop is 120.00 and i really don't have need or space for a 4-port hub.

    If anyone has any idea where I can find these please "throw me a bone"

    in theory it can be done. it's the same as connecting a crossover cable to a hub but i can't ever remember seeing one.. check out compusa?

    I think you are referring to "splitting" pairs to run 2 10mbs jacks off of 1 CAT5 cable. I really can't do that because of the building regulations. I have checked CompUsa on-line and even done a google search for "splitters" but all I get are for Lan Analyzers and way too much $$$$$$$.

    but thanks "cat"

    What exactly are you looking for? You could create a custom harness to go from the 1236 wire standard to 1236 + 4578 harness at both ends and see if it works - just make sure that both harnesses are the same and that pins 123+6 are active on both ends. Also after creating the splitter harness you should use an end to end tester and test the entire run for continuity.

    Here's a solution I came up with:

    At the patch panel end of the wire run do this: Strip the cat5 cable - punch down 4 wires from the cable into the 10mb blocks on one port and punch the other 4 wires into the 10mb blocks on another port.

    At the RJ45 module jack end: Strip the cat5 cable - punch down 4 wires from the cable into the 10baseT blocks on one module and punch the other 4 wires into the 10baseT blocks on another module.

    This is basically just a tweak so you dont have to run another wire but it will still use 2 ports on a hub/switch and will only work at 10baseT.

    I hope you can understand what I mean...I know it probably sounds confusing.

    Check at Datacom Warehouse for the actual splitter thingy.
    Datacom warehouse item number DCO1300
    Splits a t568b jack into 2 pair 10Base T jacks. $9.99

    I would think that you would need two of these to accomplish your goal.
