There's been a cock-up in the internet wiring at a building I'm helping out at (I'm installing the networking there) and the builder has tried to rectify the situation with a solution I have zero confidence in. I however am no expert in networking/electrics, so I figured I'd ask those who might be.
For context, there's a flat that has one Cat 6 cable leading into it. The problem here is that there are actually two rooms which require an Ethernet port. There's a language barrier between myself and the builder so you can imagine conveying technical details is far from easy.
Upon me informing the builder that this was an error and we needed two Cat 6 cables leading to that flat, he came up with the solution of "splitting" the Cat 6 cable (I think)? He's used this cable connector/one similar to this to do so.
My question is pretty much "will this work?" or do I need to tell him that this is more of a problem than he suspects. I'm thinking that this could possibly confuse the network/cause packetloss/interference but those are all guesses.
I know one solution would be to use one of these but those limit the connection to 10/100 and the connection in the building is significantly faster.
