Just thought I'd share something on this item - this appears to be a simple splitter that breaks out all 8 wires to both jacks. It should work fine if you have a situation where only one device will be active at a time. It is not intended to act a a switch that would allow two active devices just by plugging this in.

Two have two devices, you need something like the primus cable TS2-2966-04 or the cables to Go 37133. These would need to be used in pairs (one at each end of the cable). You'd then plug each of the split ends into a different switch port and then on the other splitter you could have two devices.

I think this item may be getting a bad review as a buyer could easily misunderstand how it is designed to work.

I bought this because I only had one port left on my DSL modem, and needed to plug in both my blu-ray player and Xbox 360. Here's the deal: It works perfectly, but ONLY ONE DEVICE can be powered on at a time. If you are trying to use this to share two constant network connections, IT AIN'T GONNA WORK. I can game on Xbox, or watch HD streaming on Netflix on my blu-ray player, it's fine. Just remember: don't have both devices on at the same time.

For me, it worked perfect, as I only have one of those two devices on at any given time. 5 stars.

This splitter adapter works just fine and is an excellent value. However, it only works for me in one configuration. I have a PC in my living room, which is connected by a six foot ethernet cable to the splitter adapter, and a laptop in my bedroom, which is connected by a 30-foot cable. When I first plugged the splitter adapter between the modem and my PC, it worked perfectly, until I plugged in the 30-foot cable WITHOUT the laptop being connected at the other end. This extinguished the PC activity light. When I plugged in the laptop while it was powered down, the PC activity illuminated. In short the splitter adapter works perfectly, but only as long as both the PC and the laptop are connected, though only one may be booted up at a time; this warning is included in the product title. To have both on and in use at the same time requires a router. If you can leave both devices connected, and have only one powered up at a time, then this splitter adapter should do the trick. Premium 12-Inch RJ45 Splitter Adapter Cable Male / Female / Female - If you are connecting 2 computers to one internet access, please make sure only ONE computer is ON at any one time

How can a device so simple and so easy to manufacture not have the right fit? I cannot fathom how Design Engineers can justify producing a product that I am having so much difficulty just getting the Ethernet cable to fit in? Its too tight and feels like I will break something if I force the cable into it. Serves me right for going cheap!

It simply doesn't work well for me. It seems like it has a problem connecting to the Internet. Fades in and out so it never connects.

Well. I was going to give this a five-star rating until I realized the heading said, "12 inch" and I thought, "There's no way that amounts to 12". Either way - the product works fine - I just use the little 6" ethernet cable, really...

I was trying to get my basic talk to work with my internet connection , but it wouldn't work . So I've boxed both the basic talk box and the splitter plugs and packed them away . I have Verizon for just my home phone now and no more expensive cell phone bill .
