    Splitters..

    Can anyone shed any light on how they work? I will be needing an extra line in my room soon, and I don't think dad will want the wireless hooking up since he thinks its unsecure..

    I currently have 0 spare ports on my router, one line goes straight up to my room via fibre optic cables (I believe), then from wall into the PC.

    I think you can split the whatever it is called and then use one split here and one there :giggle: .

    Show your dad the wireless is secure and you will have a wireless setup, if you have a wireless router and it's working already it is either secure or unsecure :whistling:

    I thought that at first. I'll blag him some technical bs when he gets home from work, see if he takes it.

    If not just connect a cable from the router to a switch (sorta like a router) then a cable from that to his computer

    i used to use a spillter before i had wireless, the speed doesnt drop. they great. You may need to config your router to allow more then 1 ip addresses to log on to it though.

    is it just 1 cable into the router, then 2 out this end?

    I am assuming this is what you mean, you stick the enternet cable from the router to this swtich, and then a cable from the swtich to how many Pcs/laptos you want to connect.

    you can get bigger switces which have more ports


    I hope this is what you was asking for if not sorry:oops:
