So it uses 6 pin straight through RJ45 connectors I guess. The same kind as is common for phones -- at least around here. You should do okay with a splitter, I think, since it is a single signal wire for receive and transmit, with every device taking turns. The biggest problem is that 6 pin splitters are quite uncommon, mostly you'll find 4 pin ones. An alternative trick is to hook the keyboard into the back of the disk drive, leaving the front connector of the Adam open for your test expansion device.> From: jblenkle at sacnews.net> To: coladam at adamcon.org; shonmccallum at juno.com> Date: Tue, 11 Mar 2008 22:16:36 -0700> Subject: Re: [Coladam] Coladam Digest, Vol 35, Issue 6> > The question I have is, why would you want to use a 6 pin phone splitter since the Adam Disk drives already have a built in 6 pin splitter that allows one to plug in another Adam Net device like a disk drive?> > More convenient access than having to plug the cable into the disk drives -- which in my case are not easy to get to on my computer desk because of other things around them.
