Ethernet Splitter Adapter Review
This Ethernet jack splitter is inexpensive and works in the right scenarios. It is compatible for usage with Cat5, Cat5e and Cat6 network cables and allows up to 100 mbps. Great for usage between game consoles, computers or printers where only one network connection will be used at a time. You can connect your Ethernet cable to the RJ45 connector opening on one end and connect it to your router; while the other two ports can connect to your game consoles, pc, printers, hub or other Ethernet compatible device.
The network splitter will effectively route traffic accordingly, firstly on the left port and secondly from the right port. If the left port is not in use, the right port will be enabled. This rj45 splitter is most likely best when trying to connect multiple game consoles, printers or scanners to the same port in your router or modem.
Though it has it's short-comings, it is inexpensive and is useful in situations where only one device requires an internet connection at a time. Otherwise, it can also be used as a cable extender, coupler or joiner to create a very long Ethernet cable.
