I see two issues: 1) The wire colors appear to be incorrect. If you look closely at the bottom right pair of terminals in the 2nd picture, you see that you can use either green plus white OR orange plus white for that pair of terminals. You have both the green and orange wires going to that bottom right pair of terminals - that is wrong. Pull those wires ...

It sounds like from that description that you need a switch which would be plugged into the patch port in your room and then plugged into both computers. An alternative would be to get WiFi but on the Thinkpad you could either get a USB WiFi adapter or create a bridged connection between the two computers. Hope this helped

Your "home router" doesn't really serve the same purpose as say a core router. Pre wifi when broadband started to proliferate in the US you used to have to pay extra for multiple ip addresses, so more per month for multiple computers in the same house. So the first NAT routers were born they took the traffic from multiple computers on your internal private ...

Theoretically you could, Hub Circuits can be replicated with only a Breadboard, but isn't a best practice (...) we always watch the Star Topology or in advanced networks Fully Connected Topology but to have all in rule you always should use the right Networking Hardware or your selected Network Topology will have a critical impact. If you are doing this ...

So after scouring the web for some time now, I've finally discovered the answer I was looking for. Although I'm not entirely sure if the matrix I have provides this capability, it is certainly plausible with the HDBaseT 2.0 standard. A quote from: Why HDBaseT 2.0 is So Awesome: USB and Multipoint Video Distribution More significant than USB support is ...

No. The signaling for USB and Ethernet are completely different at both physical and logical levels. Under no circumstances should you attempt to connect a USB cable to an Ethernet port. Consider using a Linux device with gadget support to access mass storage being shared via NBD instead.

USB and Ethernet are very different beasts. Theoretically, you could use an Ethernet cable to transmit USB data, but it wouldn't be Ethernet communications and hub, routers, and network switches wouldn't recognize it (assuming they or the USB device aren't fried by it). There are purpose built solutions available though. In software: ...

It will need two things: Switches that support VLANs and VLAN trunking. The router must have more than one ethernet port. You have to create two VLANs and one Trunk on each switch : Room B: VLAN A - Ports that connect internal users VLAN B - Port to Wireless access point Trunk - Port to the only ethernet cable going to Room A Room A: VLAN A - Ports ...

Best fix other then crimping a new RJ45 connector is to use an RJCLIP. It's the newest way to easily get that network cable to securely plug back into a switch or wall jack without any fuss. Hear the Click! You can find it at www.rjclip.com or search it on eBay Don't just take my word, go do some research on RJCLIP

1) Game streaming Game streaming does not require a "very hefty" network. The ability to deliver 50Mbps more than enough, typically it uses 20-30Mbps, or a little more than a maximum quality Plex stream. However the half-duplex nature and low consistency of powerline could be a bigger issue. 2) The switch A switch will do fine in this situation. It will ...
