How to Set Up Ethernet Splitter

If you have more than one computers at home or at work, more likely you will need to distribute the internet connection among all the PC’s so that all the occupants can use the internet at once. For this reason you can employ an ethernet splitter to construct a set of connections where all the computers can be connected to take advantage of the web connection. So the network is basically all the PC’s connected by a communications device that facilitates sharing information among all the users.

If it is not convenient enough for you to buy an Ethernet splitter, then you can read this article to learn how you can create one on your own. But it takes time, patience and a little knowledge of wiring. By setting up an Ethernet splitter, you can link two or more PC’s at the same time through one Ethernet device.

In order to make your own Ethernet splitters you will require some devices and tools including two RJ45 Crimpable Plug, four RJ-45 keystone jack, a short Ethernet Cable Scrap around 2 feet in size and tools such as a RJ45 Crimp Tool Craft knife, 110 Punch Down Mechanism, Loctite  Super Glue. First you will need to crimp the RJ45 Plug to the Ethernet wire. For this to be done you will require to follow a configuration codes taken from a hardware book or from the instructions on the package.
Now use the 110 Punch Down Mechanism to punch down the other end to the RJ-45 keystone jacks and take the other side of the cable and slice it to 9 inches and press down the four pairs with this wiring scheme, Jack #1: 1 White/Orange to pin 1keystone jack 2 Orange to pin 2 keystone jack 3 White/Green to pin 3 keystone jack 6 Green to pin 6 keystone jack #2: 4 Blue to pin 2 keystone jack 5 White/Blue to pin 1 keystone jack 7 White/Brown to pin.

Use the preceding information to create one more splitter so you eventually create two splitters. Plug one splitter to the RJ45 wall plate and join the two PC’s to the splitter. Now plug the other splitter to the patch plate and put two patch cables from the splitter to two free Ethernet jacks from the switch. If your splitter cables are right then the two leds from the knob on which the patch cable are connected should turn on. After this setup is complete, then you will be able to install two computer systems simultaneously connected using only one Ethernet cable. This method is similar to Power over Ethernet but instead of injecting DC, it is insering a next data. It is better if you can to pull one more Ethernet cord from the patch panel to the wall plate. Once you use these instructions then you should create a proper Ethernet splitter, if not you will need to start over the process all over again.
