| UTP cable speed|
|I have a home network. A computer that is connected to a switch by a cat5 UTP cable. Speed: 100Mbps.|
I want to split the cable in 2 (I now have 2 computers) 'cause I don't want to buy another cable( there are 60 m between me and the switch!). My question is: does this affect the speed? Both computers will work at 100 Mbps or 10 Mbps??
( I have 2 10/100 NICs at both computers).
Thanks in advance,

Although this is not a standard setup, most likely it will work, even at 100MB/s. Why don't you just give it a try?
