Hey!I was wondering if i could use a cat5 splitter to split the cable sify has installed and then plug it in two ethernet cards.each configured for a different ip. login using easysify in 1 and official client from the other. (different username and passwords..i.e. using 2 packs simultaneously)where to buy the cat5 splitter.any ideas. and do you think it will work?thanks for the input

You could try with a shop that deals with networks & cabling. Otherwise use a hub.

Umm I dont wanna pay for another cable (rs.1500) so if i use a hub can i split the ethernet cable into 2? like 1 ethernet cable (which sify installed) going into the hub and 2 seperate ehternet cables coming out of it plugging into the lan cards?would it work if i set up 2 different ip's in the cards and try to connect?

It should work... but why are you buying a hub for that? If u are ready to pay sify for a new 256 pack with new ip ,, i think u need not shy away with them, rather tell them(CTO) to put a hub in your house instead.. if you are in good terms with cto and pay him the maintainance charges. He should ideally help you.The bottom line is that you are using to sify connections in 1 pc with 2 lan cards.

I dont think i have a CTO..but i'll ask the marketing guy.Im buying the Cat5 Splitter myself. its much faster if i do everything myself.700bux or so.dat way i could just buy a pack on the net and get the ip and all over the phone.. much faster process...hehyes 1 lan cable split into 2 lan cables plugged into 2 ethernet cards on 1 pc.

But i think you will have to call your cto to give yr ip number so that he can add it to his list on his server(gateway) :eek: not sure...
