I know this does not belong on this site not a hacking topic. I broke a cat 5e cable in the ceiling can I splice it together using a telephone splice connector. The cable is from demarc to the network room anyone do this? Been working it rocks.

I wouldn't use telco splices on network cables, if you have to do it, punch down a cat5 keystone and put a cat5 cable end on the other end and plug them together. It's for t1 though, so you might get away with it, since it's only a megabit and a half. Personally I'd just use the broken cable as a pull string for a new cable. Tape the new cable to the end at the demarc and pull it to your broken point, then retape to the other part and pull it the rest of the way. If at some point you get real internet you'll thank yourself for not introducing headaches.

it best that you replace the cable run but in the short term you can splice the cables together using the following methods

a) terminate both ends of the damaged cable into RJ45 plugs and the use a rj45 joiner to connect the two plugs together (in a emergency you can also use a dual jack with both jacks wired together

b) terminate both ends of the cable with gel filled connectors

c) use a rj45 jack and punch down both wires onto the same connector

d) use a telco cable joiner or a frame

I must emphasize that this can only be temporary - the more connections that you have the greater the signal degration is. using a TDR I have been able to see each join on a cable run ,

also on cat5/6 cabling a single nick on a cable can result in degradation
