How To Extend Your Cat5 Run When You Dont Have Many Choices
Dont have any RJ45 jacks? Dont have a long enough Cat 5 pull to get you to the new switch room? Dont have any extra Cat 5 to run a new line? Here is what you do then if you have to. I dont recommend it, but sometimes you have to work with what you have to extend your Cat 5 cable out. I put this under the ShoreTel Fun site because if I ever have to do anything odd, its usually in the phone world. This time, it was to extend a cable for a IP phone. The grey cable on the right is punched down in the second to the right column. That cable runs next door to where the new switch is. The first column on the right goes to the IP phone.
