Hey all, me again, with yet another question (I swear I only ever post here when I'm looking for advice!). Is it possible to run a single length of CAT5e cable from one 2-socket ethernet wall plate to another (i.e., single cable, 2 independent sockets on either end)? I've done some very (very) light reading but I've found conflicting info on the requirements for Gbit ethernet and the number of wires it uses. I've moved into a new property and because of the stupid way I have my internet/network set up I'm needing to run cable from one room to another. Room 1 is where the phone socket and modem are (along with the TV, HTPC etc), Room 2 is where I keep the router/server/WiFi AP etc (rack gear, so don't really want to separate it). Essentially, I'd be running a cable from the modem to the router, then running a 2nd cable back from the router to the TV/HTPC etc. Is it possible to do this with a single cable? I could easily get away with a 100Mbit connection for the modem>router, but the other connection needs to be Gbit (for video/steam streaming). Also, 5m or so of the cable will be running outside the property; I was originally thinking of just routing the cable(s) around the skirting boards, but I've spotted aerial sockets in each room. I'll pop these off and replace them with double-RJ45 plates and run the CAT5 cable along the outside wall where the coax currently resides. Alternatively, is there such a thing as 16-core CAT5 cable? I'd really prefer not to have to run 2 separate cables.
