I have a bunch of cat5 ethernet cable but without connectors.
Where do I get (male) connectors/plugs, the tool to attach them and
instructions for using the tool? I assume I need the latter because
it looks a bit more complicated than attaching the plugs on phone
I have the tool for phone cables, have used it several times. OTOH, I
recall seeing some mention to the effect that manually attached cat5
connectors are unreliable or flakey.
I have just one reason to know/do this: I'd like to run a cable fropm
house to studio, ca. 100' away (plus, say, 40' max inside the
building). Have the cable but no connectors/plugs.
