Lots of luverly links, ta. They're still all looking a bit "professional"
if you know what I mean. What a company can stand and what I can afford are
different things. Look at it another way, you can just about buy a 5-port
hub for a tenner. I have a moral objection to paying over half that for
what amounts to one passive RJ45 socket.
[Light-bulb moment. I have a spare small hub. It might be easier to run in
the cable and terminate it with RJ45 plugs.]
Yeah, yeah, I know ;-)
Money doesn't come easy - that's the way it goes!
Nobody mentioned Screwfix :-)
This is reasonable value - the double socket kit even comes with a blanking
plate for when you only want one connetcion at the moment.
I agree the wall box is huge - and it seems wasteful to throw it away and
use a slimmer one - but this kit is cheaper than buying all the bits
P.S. you need a decent punch down tool as well - so your idea of running a
patch cable with a hub at either end is good for just a single connection -
you need to be doing several sockets before buying all the bits seems to
