Can I create a "pseudo-mau" using a piece of CAT5 patch (section of 6 ports, need 4 ports)? As we're all aware cheap/free MAU's/TR hubs are like hen's teeth or rocking horse droppings. I know (or think I know!!) the pinouts for TR on RJ-45 i.e. 3 is T-,4 is R+,5 is R- & 6 is T+. Can anyone suggest a workable solution as I'm going round in circles (no pun intended) trying to fathom it out. I intend to have all 4 TR NICs permanently connected.
