Extending this Interface:
The cables on this interface
have a total length of about 6 feet -- just right for
most laptops. If you want to use this interface
with a desktop PC, you should get an RJ45 Coupler (available
as a $5 option on our order form) and an ordinary CAT5 Ethernet
Patch Cord in whatever length you need up to 100'
(30m). Make sure the Patch Cord has all 8
