More than one Ethernet extension

  maz6870 00:27 22 Jun 2017

I've extended my Ethernet to an upstairs bedroom from my virgin superhub 3. However I now want to further extend it into another room, again as a wired extension. Can I simply get a splitter and connect this new Ethernet to the one in the existing extension in the first bedroom? Thanks

No. You need an unmanaged switch. A 4 way one costs only £10-15.

Have you considered Home Plugs? You can get them with wifi and ethernet.

Yes but much more expensive.

They are but much easier than installing extension cables and, usually, very effective.
