Used 5 of these RJ45 online Couplers super-glued to extend the 5 ports on my router. Used the 5 pack multi-colored cat6 slim cables for the 5 ports to my router. Looks great, no messy cable mess. Made it easy to plug in new devices into my router.
Trolls seem to be everywhere writing bad reviews on products just to be contrary.
This coupler is well made. I bought 6 and tested them all on a POE camera. They work fine. They are solid and well made. Don't believe the bad reviews. This is a good product, well made and fairly priced.
After seeing the reviews on these I decided to test all before trying to use. I purchased 10 of these just to have handy in the bag of tricks.
Test 1, RJ45 Mapper, tests PIN to PIN with DC. All tested OK Test 2, Sunset T-10 DS1 test set to a loop back. (1.544 Mbt) This tests pins 1-2 4-5. of these 6 tested OK, 4 were intermittent. Sprayed with Caig Deoxit, and all seemed to work. Test 3, 100 gbt ethernet connection to Laptop. (Tests pins 1-2 3-6) of these 9 tested OK, I refused to connect after several trys. Did a lot of wiggling but it never worked.
The one that refused to work at 100 Gbt, worked OK back on the T1 Test set, so just threw it in the test equipment bag as a test coupler. When you get these, test them all before you try it in the field. Some kind of spay cleaner may help those that don't work at first..
PROS: Most will work
CONS: Test before use and figure a 10% failure rate at higher speeds
Truly sorry to hear PID 7284 arrived defective. We do offer a 30 day return policy as well as a one year warranty on this item. If you would like I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement. That is correct that we do not carry a 60ft Cat5e cable. The closest we would have is 50ft and 75ft:
Thank you for your review on PID 7284! I am truly sorry to hear one out of ten couplers did not work. I will submit a complaint on this item so our product team can look into the matter further. If you would like, I can setup an RMA to replace the one that failed as well as the one that had a flaky connection. We cover this product with a one year warranty and it would be of no additional cost to you to obtain the replacements. Please let me know if you would like to proceed and I can get that going right away. My apologies for the trouble and I hope this helps!
