I have an ethernet cable which is quite a distance from the router. Is there any way that I can use two computers off of that line? It would be quite difficult to run another cable.Thanks
Get a 5 port ethernet switch. Plug in the line from the router and then you can plug in up to 4 other connections for computers, printers or other devices that need a wired connection.Example:https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Ethernet-Optimization-Unmanaged-TL-SG1005D/dp/B000N99BBC/ref=sxin_2_ac_d_pm?ac_md=1-0-VW5kZXIgJDE1-ac_d_pm&crid=3UFI1TYRM46SX&cv_ct_cx=5+port+ethernet+switch&keywords=5+port+ethernet+switch&pd_rd_i=B000N99BBC&pd_rd_r=06b74717-c0d5-4c8f-9e38-7faa9cce6d82&pd_rd_w=vg0qj&pd_rd_wg=HUdm6&pf_rd_p=0e223c60-bcf8-4663-98f3-da892fbd4372&pf_rd_r=YZ1A59TE0V5CWS4476EJ&psc=1&qid=1581082780&sprefix=5+port+eth%2Caps%2C237&sr=1-1-22d05c05-1231-4126-b7c4-3e7a9c0027d0
Behind every good computer... is a jumble of wires 'n stuff.
Run that by me again.I never thought about it like that.Thanks.Matter of fact, just yesterday I was asked, "will I need to run another home run?", & I was like, yes.Never thought of it like that.Now it's like, duh!Have switch by the modem/router, with home runs to 8 rooms.Want a second line in a particular room, connect the existing to a switch & connect two lines to that...Smart .
