1 out of 5 eggsTake it from a Pro - they do NOT work

Pros: None

Cons: NewEgg, stop selling this product! It doesn’t do what you think it does. And yes, I know EXACTLY how it should work. I use similar types of splitters ALL THE TIME! I just took a chance on these hoping they would work but viewing the pics thought they probably would not. It could work for some things I’ve researched online BUT it will not work with computer networking. Chris R, you may be reviewing something that’s a little different and this is not what you bought. Your interpretation on how things work is “close”. Talking about the “stupidity of others” is probably a bad idea since you don’t really know how it works either. Plus, I don't think you have these EXACT adapters.

Other Thoughts: Chris R stated “There are 8 wires in a standard Cat5 cable, only 4 are used most of the time”. Kind of I guess. 4 are used in 100MB connections and 8 are used in 1 GB connections. You would be correct about using a splitter on one end and another splitter on the other to continue achieving 100MB speeds but these are NOT the correct adapters for that. I TESTED THEM. These adapters do NOT split the pairs of wiring like you think they do. They simply piggy back the connections running all 8 wires to both sides. That's not gonna work. These Startech units on the other hand do what they should do and work like you “think” they should: They truly “split” 4 wires on one side and 4 wires on the other. Do it to the other end and you're good to go.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 1 week

Pros: It's small and cheap.

Cons: It died after a week of use. At least I didn't waste too much money on it.

Other Thoughts: I would not buy this again.

4 out of 5 eggsIt is not rocket science

Pros: Simple, does what it says

Cons: limits speeds. Cat 5 cable has four pairs of wire and each pair is twisted. Cat 6 even twists them at different rates so the wires are not in parallel and this minimizes crosstalk between the wires. The unsused wires are essentially shielding, they add stability as high frequency signals generate radio waves that interfere with each other and these dead lines soak up some of that. Using the four spare wires for more data interferes with this balance and reduces the usable speed of the cable.

Other Thoughts: High tech knowledge would indicate that one would know that Ethernet is a point-to-point protocol. This splitter is not an Ethernet switch. There are 8 wires in a standard Cat5 cable, only 4 are used most of the time. This uses the other four. On the other end those four are not connected to anything either, so you need two of these. To call four wires half-duplex proves that you lack tech knowledge.

This is a good example why we cannot blindly trust in the stupidity of others. A bad rating may be mad reviewers. These details are why professionals can solve problems and the ignorant cannot.

5 out of 5 eggsImportant note

Pros: N/A

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: Please note that *ANY* RJ45 splitter cable requires a second RJ45 Splitter cable at the opposite end of the line. You must combine two Ethernet cables with a companion "combiner" at the other end of the line for this to work!

I suspect this is why the other reviews listed here may be negative.
