| || || | Heatshrink butt connectors with solder?
Hi, I want to join some Cat5 cable so that its easily
movable/drawable, unobstructive and damp proof.
I'm considering these heatshrink connectors:

| || || | Run multiple Cat5 cables in single trunking?
Hi, I have a master socket ADSL faceplate splitter in my garage from
where I run a cat5 cable to the router in the middle of the house,
then radiate to LAN workstations from there.
Now I want to put a server in the garage. Can I run the Cat5 cable to
this server back in the same trunking that carries the primary ADSL to
the centre of the house from the garage?

Over the past two weeks I've encountered four routers (two Netgear DG834G or
GT, two BT Voyager 210) which have failed with the same symptoms:
- power, DSL, Ethernet lights flashing at random
- PC connected by Ethernet gets no IP address
This seems a hell of a coincidence. At least one of the routers (my own, a
DG834GT) was connected to the mains and phone line via a surge protector;
