I already said that only one computer would be hooked up at a time.
trying to hookup multi modems. You know how you have cable TV jacks all over your house, well thats what i'm trying to do but just with like 2 rooms so that i would only have to use one splitter.
The reason i'm trying to do this is the internet connection is currently run upstairs to my family room, where the modem and my router is. then i have a 50' ethernet cable coming down to my room downstairs. I would rather have the router down here so that i can hook up my computer on PS2 to it also and troubleshoot when crap goes wrong with it. To get the router down here means to bring the modem too so i need the connection down here, but I would like to keep the connection upstairs too.
Where the internet cable comes in is right by my room downstairs, so i want to cut the cable, add a connector on each end i just cut, stick a splitter in and then still have the wire run upstairs. So basically where there is one straight line going upstairs, i want to stick a splitter in part way along the line so that i can run a second wire off the splitter to my room and still have the wire upsatirs.
This is kinda hard to explain,lol. If you have any questions just ask and i'll try and explain. If need i'll make a diagram,lol.
<EDIT> Just to add no
