T-Adapter Cat5e 2M/1F, 6 in
T-adapters for CAT5e (ethernet) applications are great cost saving devices that help to reduce the number of lines needed to connect two distant points. They ARE NOT splitters in the traditional sense. You CAN NOT use it to split a single port on a modem, computer, switch, router or hub. What they do allow you to do is connect 2 ports on a switch, hub or router to 2 different computers using a single Ethernet cable to bridge the two points.
It takes the initial two Ethernet connections from two PC's into the two female ports on the "T" adapter. The male Ethernet cable attached to the "T" adapter, connects to a wall plate/inline coupler/network panel. Then from the wall plate/inline coupler/network panel to the "T" adapter's male Ethernet cable and branches off to two female ports with Ethernet cables connected to and from the Router/Hub/Switch.
**Sold individually. Need 1 PAIR (2 devices) to work (PID# 1106 or 1107)**
Not compatible with 7294
Questions and Answers
you can then use the Y adapter on the switch side and another Y adapter on the NAS side, if you have a cable and not a socket, you will need a Y adapter with 3 female.
Works perfect, flawlessly and is a heck of a lot easier than pulling more wires. Well pleased and can highly recommend this. Just don't forget you need both parts to use an existing single Cat5E wall cable wire for 2 separate hookups.
PROS: works with 100mb connection
CONS: doesn't not work with 1000mb connection.
PROS: Great way to get two circuits on one Cat5e cable run.
CONS: 1106 and 1107 should be sold together since one is not useful without the other.
Each device will see lines 1,2,3 and 6 as active, which is enough for 100megabit ethernet. 100megabit is faster than all but the best wireless connections and way more than enough for internet, streaming video from your NAS, or pretty much anything other than heavy file transfer activity.
PROS: Works like it's supposed to.
PROS: no need to run additional cable
CONS: confuses some people
PROS: Low cost splitter
PROS: Good quality. Worked as expected. Shipped same day as ordered. Very satisfied.
PROS: Great way to get an extra cat5 connection without running another cable.
