Yes, but it depends on how long you want to run. There is a limit to ethernet distance without a repeater. Speed 10 or 100 MBPS is important too. Within your house should not be a problem.
You can splice the 2 sets of wires together or put phone type conenctors on one end of each cable and plug them into a phone line splitter. Keep as much of the pairs of wires twisted as possible when splicing them together.
You can also extend the distance by using a hub to act as an amplifier for the signal.
thanks enyo thats exactly what i needed. as for distances i dont know what type of cable i have.
i know i have a cat5 cable thin. i got it from best buy so from looking at the tables on the site i would guess it couldnt go over 328feet or so because i already have a 50 foot cable.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
