"Ethernet Jacks"


          

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:

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 .
