can two shorter ethernet cables be joined together

Hi folks.
I hope this isn't to daft a question, but can two ethernet cables be joined together with something to make one longer one? If so what? i am joining three PC's together via a router, two upstairs and one downstairs, hence the need for a very long cable.
I don't mind admitting I'm a novice in this so any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

You can buy a small connector from somebody like maplins or cpc, cost a couple pounds, just plug both in and you have one longer one!

Suggest you check with your local small shop. The one I use will make up a cable to any length required.

Try a company called Cableuniverse, you can get cables up to 10 metres long. Meshuga.
