Maplin Female to Female Crossover Ethernet Coupler

• Cat5e/Cat6 Ethernet inline coupler to turn straight through cables to crossover
• Can be used in a wallplate or keystone patch panel
• Compatible with Cat5 and Cat6 cables

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

Asked by: Prosper_1
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
