If you're planning to cut the cables out of those punch blocks and manually crimp RJ45 ends on to them, then yes, you can follow the diagrams you have. This would end up resulting in more or less a long Ethernet cable with two normal ends that has been run through the wall. Punch-down blocks will often have different "pinouts" for the wires, so wires going ...

Yes I know you don't have to use the screws. The thing is the screws make the plug heavier, and therefore more prone to falling out. Anyway I figured a way to get around it and also keep the plug firmly in place. I bought a product called "sugru". It's a self-setting rubber that I placed around the plug and on my PC(not where the pins are). You let it cure ...

I see you just selected an answer... However, if you are going to spend that much money on a DVI Booster, why not just buy a laptop or tablet? You can hook the laptop to the monitor and have much more control. In a addition to that, the laptop or tablet is portable.

If you want longer than that you'll need to look into a DVI Booster, which by the looks of the first Google hit I ...

Yes, they exists, but they are quite rare. I've only seen two of them in the last 30 years. One around 1990 connecting an Amiga computer to a CRT monitor and a cable (not detachable) on a Philips 17" LCD monitor some 5 years ago (monitor was older than that actually). AFAIK they don't have a specific name. They are just called VGA cables.

Ok guys I finally figured it all out. It was a hardware problem and nothing else. The First desktop I connected only had a 10/100 ethernet connection on the motherboard. The second desktop I was connecting, was connected to a second router, that was connected to the first router, but the second router only supported 10/100 speeds. I made a little ...

How exactly you test the speed? If your desktops have slow or highly fragmented HDD and you just trying to download file it may be culprit.
