network cable ext.

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.
