This is probably the wrong place to ask but figured it would be a good start.
I don't have any ethernet cables currently run in my house. I wanted to run a couple lines from the living room where my modem and router are through the walls to a couple other places.
Would this and some cat 6 cable be my best bet? Along with some wall jacks on both sides. Longest run will be about 10'.
I was thinking about getting coupler style jacks on each wall and just buying long pre-terminated cables but don't know if that's a good idea.
If you're only doing a couple 10' runs I'd probably just buy pre terminated cables and run them neatly.

Depending on how new your home is and whether you use your landline phone, you can convert your phone jacks to Ethernet ports.

That would be a nice option if the phone lines were anywhere close. Unfortunately there is only one current jack in the kitchen, lol.
Thanks for the tip though.

Remove the panel plate and look at the wiring. They often used cat5 / cat5e 4 wires for landlines. If it's cat 5 then you're out of luck since that won't support standard gigabit and only 100mbps and not to mention the crosstalk issues.

If it's cat5e (gigabit) then you can simply replace the keystone with the appropriate one and punch down wires.

Not exactly the same tool, Mono's doesnt look like it is a ratchet. But the one you listed is $13.26 at Home Depot. But yeah, there seems to be at least 7 different company names on this tool.

Any idea why mono's is better?

It's really simple, but again it depends on how new your home is and what cable they ran for the phones. Older homes may only have cat3 which has a max speed of 10mbps, my home was built in 2010 so it has cat5e (if I remember correctly) and I average about 950mbps from my 1 gig fiber internet.

There are plenty of websites and YouTube videos about it, but basically all you do is swap the phone jack to an rj45 jack, it's that simple.

Discounting the list price, looking at Google Cache [googleusercontent.com], this was $36 back on July 8 so this looks like nice savings.
How'd u do that. I really need to see a site 1 month ago

What's actual normal price on this?
No way this is $91 regularly, even platinum tools isn't that bad lol
It's that high for the same tool at ebay, walmart, and a few other stores. I agree...it seems too high.

Is keystone the transparent part at the end of ethernet cable that clicks into the jack? If so, will this tool help replace the telephone keystone with ethernet keystone?

So I just did this two weeks ago. I used the jacks below, but there are other brands that may be better quality.

It was so so easy. Took me about 5 minutes a jack. I bought 100 foot of Cat 6a wire and after cutting I put these on the ends. No special tools required. I had no experience with this before.
Category 6 Jack - White

What is EZ Passthrough in the product description? So, the one on Homedepot and Amazon does not have EZ Passthrough or they just haven't described that way?

I don't think it goes back a month. From my experience, the furthest it goes back is a week.


In order to do it though, Google the product and in search results, select the drop down arrow under product which directs you to cache page (screenshot attached) which again is random for what date it choose for you.
