Re: Networking Ideas Questions for a Retro Build.

Easy way would be to put a switch in the location... But if it's an access or environmental problem; no reason why you couldn't use 110 or a Bix block to splice. Both are rated for 100M ethernet, as long as they are installed properly (less then 1/2" of untwist in the pairs) - and GigaBix wafers are even rated for 1000BaseT.

It would also be possible to connectorize (RJ-45) the ends of the existing and new cables, and use RJ-45 bulkheads to connect them, but that's ugly, and I'd try and avoid it, if I could, myself.

Well the old office is going to turn in to the new kids room and they need the closet.

How about if I have it go to a patch panel on the attic and then down to another patch panel on the office? I am sure I can go directly to the switch at that point but for the sake of "clean"

do exactly this, but i woud get three patch panels.

patch the current drops to 1st patch panel. patch the new drops to the 2nd patch panel. mount these next to e/o and use 1 ft patch cables to patch port 1 to port 1, port 2 to port 2, port 3 to port 3.....

in the new office, take the other end of the new cable runs and punch them down to the 3rd patch panel.

from there, use patch cables needed to terminate devices.

how many total drops? you can also punch down phone on the patch panels.

Overly complicated to use multiple patch panels for a static situation... 110 or Bix is cleaner and more reliable...
