Cat5 Splitter

Is there anyway to have a computer and a wireless router running off one cat5 connection, also if there is some kind of splitter will both be able to run at the same time?

Not sure what you mean. If you mean sharing an internet connection with one computer wired by cat5e and other computers using the wireless then yes that is a standard way of doing it if it is cable broadband (ntl, telewest). If not simply us an adsl wireless router with built in modem.

im finding it hard to explain ill try again. Our building has a network all over it and there is a access point on the wall and we need to connect a computer and router in one point so is there a two way splitter or somthing.

If the router has any LAN ports, any reason why you can't connect the computer to the router?

Besides this, I don't think it is a simple yes or no answer as it depends on the existing network setup.
