    Hello people.

    Just a quick question if it can be done.

    I have a 4 port router with all port's being used, what i need to do is, get the wife's laptop on the net in 3 different places in the house, she's using one port that goes to the kitchen, but she would like to go in the front room or bedroom now and again, so can i wire up more keystone jack's like a daisy chain to the one that goes in the kitchen, only that laptop will be used in any one place at one time.
    I know i can't have 3 computers on one ethernet cable, but just wondered if this idea would work, i really don't want to buy a 5 port switch just for one connection, also havn't got the money at the moment to buy one.

    Thank's
