 RJ45 Splitters
I've got this question, what is the function of the RJ45 cable splitter, I've seen one that have one RJ45 connection to 5 (like a Hub), and the other I've seen in internet is one RJ45 connection to 2 split connection, they say is used to have two cables into one? Can you give me an answer about what does this do?.

Dear Dionisio,

These are really cable spare splitters to allow multiple items (using different pairs) to be connected to a single cable. They come in a wide varity of configurations depending upon the needs of the user.
