why would you want to split an ethernet cable???????
i need it to connect my latop to xbox
that aint gonna work

not 100% convinced that you REALLY need a splitter unless you have a single cable from that runs through your house that you want to use the 'spare' pairs on?

You will of course need to break out the same to 2 ports on the other end to connect to your DSL router.

DSL router
Port 1 ------- ---- Port 1 --- XBOX
| Port Splitter ----------------1x RJ45 Cable -----------| Port Splitter
Port 2 ------- ---- Port 2 --- PC etc

Bear in mind that you won't be able to run 1000BaseTx (GigE) as this uses all 4 pairs on the cable. I would probably spend the money on a small 5 port Ethernet switch instead.

Good Luck! :)

P.S. diagram looks a bit different now, basically 2 ports split out at each end using the splitter, needs 2 ports on DSL router and provides 2 ports at end of RJ45
