MOVED INTO NEW HOUSE IT HAS CAT5E ?

MOVED INTO NEW HOUSE IT HAS CAT5E ?

(OP)
I need a home network but only have one cable per location, no possible way to add more cable. I have heard you can have both telephone and data with only one cable. Has anyone tried this ? Can it be done? What about standards ? Can you do it ? Pictures would be welcomed

While it is possible to split up a 4-pair cable, would using cordless telephones and using the cable strictly for data be doable?

we are using corless phones but the neighbors can listen in on their baby monitor.Maybe go with just a wall phone in kitchen

You should get a DECT Digital cordless phone if you can.

How about network and cell phone only?

RE: MOVED INTO NEW HOUSE IT HAS CAT5E ?

That's what VoIP is for. One drop per location, VoIP phone uses the drop, PC connects to phone. Done. The phones aren't cheap, but a lot better than running two drops.

RE: MOVED INTO NEW HOUSE IT HAS CAT5E ?

you could just strip off the brown/white pair. Network connections use 1,2,3 and 6. Analog uses 4 and 5. 7 and 8 are normally reserved for Power over Ethernet. They splitters that will do this for you.
