Is this cable

by cmiller5400 In reply to how do i extent

Is this cable plugging into a switch/hub/router, then run over to his computer or is it plugged into his switch/hub/router? If plugged into another switch/hub/router, you need a crossover cable not a regular cable. There are adapters that you can buy to do this. Also, there is a limit on how long the cable can be (100m), but you only have 40m of cable so you should be okay.

re Extending cables

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to how do i extent

If you check the connection with the laptop plugged into the 30m cable and it works, then you add the "socket" to extend and it does not work, the problem is either in the socket or the 10m cable.

Take the laptop over to the neighbor's house and test it with the 10m cable. If that works, your problem is with the "socket". If it does not work, you know the problem is in the 10m cable.

Hang on. Is this legal according to your ISP's terms of service?
