Re: double female eithernet cable connector

A couple of years ago I ran an eithernet cable from my router in one

Just go to an electronics store (aka Jaycar, Dick Smith, etc. here in Australia) and look for an RJ45 female-to-female adaptor. That will couple two RJ45 ethernet leads together. I doubt it complies with any of the ethernet or ISDN standards, but it's grass-roots networking and it works!

I use them regularly when fiddling with network arrangements and I need to extend a cable a short distance to reach a device but have plenty of short ethernet leads on hand.
