Product overview

What is a Cat6 Splitter and what would I use it for?
A cat6 splitter will plug into an RJ45 socket and provide you with two RJ45 female ports.

A splitter is brilliant for when you need an extra Ethernet port. It will let you connect a second computer or games console to your existing network port. Or connect two Ethernet cables to the back of a computer, for example one to another computer, and one to a network switch or hub.

What is the difference between Patch Cable and Crossover Cable?
Crossover cables are most often used to connect two devices of the same type, for example two computers – via network interface controllers – or to connect two switches to each other. This is commonly used for gaming to create a wired local area network.

Patch cables, or straight-through cables are used to connect devices of different types, for example a computer to a network switch, a computer to a hub or a network switch to a hub. This is most commonly used to connect a device to the internet, either straight from your computer to your modem or router, or into a network switch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what it says on the box Does not work, is not what it says on the box - this product does not split one data outlet in two, do not waste your money

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty I bought this 2 weeks ago and the first one was faulty in manufacture (loose wiring), the second one did not work on one of the channels

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish The switch isn't actually working. Tried to connect two PCs using the splitter, and it only works when one cable is connected, so it doesn't even allow two like it's supposed to.

What are the pinout connections on this device. Is it an active or passive device.

Asked by: John
This is a passive splitter and all pins are wired, so it uses the standard cat 6 wiring.

I want to run two freeview boxes from one ethernet port. Some splitters seem to allow only one box to work at any one time. Will it reduce the signal quality to each freeview box.

Asked by: Woody
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee this item will be suitable for your intended use as it has not bee tested in such a way
