The inline coupler is great for when you need a crossover cable to connect two PCs to each other. Crossover cables are required when you need to connect two PC’s to each other without using a hub or switch. Using this coupler, you can turn two standard ‘straight-through’ network cables into a crossover cable.

Does this coupler need power and is it basically used to fix one ethernet cable to another to extend the reach? Thansk

It does not require power. It is NOT suitable for extending the length of a standard network cable. As the description suggests it is for changing a standard wired ethernet cable into a crossover cable for connecting two computers directly to each other without the use of a router or hub. To extend a network cable you would need a standard network coupler such as http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/cat-5e-inline-coupler-for-networking-a14cf
