I have a long cable coming from my other room and I want to connect this cable to a raspberry pi and my laptop. I know I can just get a basic switch to solve this problem.
But is there such a thing as a Y cable for CAT5? I don't care if it reduces my speed to 10mbit or less. This Y cable would have to be female on one end and then output to 2 male cat5 cables.
How can this work? If not, how come?
