Actually, what I wanted the splitter for isn't ethernet - I want the
center four contacts of the cat5 to be active on each split off
connector for two phone lines - I was thinking that somewhere selling
the ethernet version might possibly have something like I wanted also.
There is one possible reason to use a splitter over a hub for ethernet -
getting full duplex instead of half.
