I can't remember the name of the little thing that you can extend cat-5 cable without crimping. I can't find anything on it online, even the radioshack website no sign of it.

it is a little box with grooves in it that strip the wires on the end of the cable and holds them in place. It creates the circuit for you without having to crimp the wire and put it in the normal ethernet housing. The wires sort of stick off and it looks pretty ugly, but it is easier than crimping.

Does anyone know the name of this, or have a picture of one?

thanks

I have no idea what you are talking about it but check the catalogue here at blackbox

I've never found anything to do with networking hardware that they don't have.

ok I found out that it is part of a kit that is meant to hang on the wall. I think it is part of termination, but it is a way to do it without using a crimp tool.

thanks for the tip!

i've always found that crimping is both more efficient and more reliable than anything else. also it's really not that difficult, just throw the wires in. crimp and away you go. but hey, that's just me.
