I want to set up a home network with two client PCs. I went to buy an RJ45 crossover cable today, but someone suggested that I should have sheilded rather than unshielded cable. Maplins didn't have any shielded ones and I can't find anywhere that sells sheilded crossover cables (it needs to be 10m long). Does anyone know if they are available? Do I actually need one or will an unshielded one work?
Secondly, the network card in the back of my PC has only one socket. Can anyone tell me if adapters are available like you can use with a phone socket to connect more than one computer using the same socket?
