I have a peer to peer network and fewer plug-ins than I have computers. Will your 5 Position RJ45 (8x8) Unshielded Modular Splitter work with my Cat5 network? Your product number for the items I just ordered on-line at this website is catalog #PMOD4U-1, 2-ordered on-line; or should I have ordered another item for temporary connectivity?
The PMOD units cannot take the place of a switch or hub. In your application, you would need to install a small switch or hub in order to hook up 5 additional computers. I would suggest taking a look at our part number MIL-S500
. Both are low cost 5 port switches that can help you expand your network. Using either of these switches will add 4 additional ports to your network (one port is used to link to existing network). You can find both of these items on the website by clicking on the part numbers above.
