 Extending Cat5 Length
We are implementing ethernet technology using Cat5 cable.After every 100 mtr,we have to place hub so as to amplify signal.

Is there any cheaper product available in market,small in size,Just having two ports or three ports(one for incoming cable and one for outgoing cable),can amplify the signal also.

If you have any company who manufactures this type of product,please suggest.
As my business is in india,Indian company will be prefferd.

Dear Harkanwal,

I think you need a box that I just described in my other answer here: http://www.cabling-design.com/helpdesk/answers/576.shtml

They are not Indian company, but maybe they can ship there.

Good luck!
