I just recently have been hooked up to a router from downstairs to my room and would like to move my desk about 10 feet from where it now is.

Can I get a "patch" or extension cord, with a female connector at one end and a male on the other?

Also.... if I did this would it affect my performance?

Thanks in advance

DAVID

PS: One last thing. What do you call the type of CONNECTOR on the end of the cable? ..... just wondering for future reference.

Hi David,

I have never seen extension cables with a male/female connector, but I have seen small plugs, that feature two female connectors. Get one of those, and just plug two standard male patch cables in at each end.

The connectors for a network patch cable are called RJ45. They feature 6 wires, and are a bit larger than the 4-wire RJ11 connectors used for telephones.
