Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor connections on keystones I needed a dual RJ45 module for an install over the weekend and I couldn't get the ones I usually use. All the reviews looked good. When I got the part my heart sank because it uses the 'tool free' type connector that has a plastic plate that sits over the connections and my punch-down tool (CCS) wouldn't do anything with the connector block so I ended up trimming the cables with a pair of electrician's scissors. All the connections tested fine before I assembled the keystones into the Euromod case but as soon as they were screwed onto the wall they both started giving intermittent connections. After several failed attempts to securely reterminate the connectors I bought two LAP RJ45 keystones and they are proper punchdown keystones at which point, all was fine. These are also very deep so you need a really deep back-box to house them (30mm supplied) which wasn't the case with the LAP keystones. My advice would be, don't buy these - buy the LAP ones instead. Roughly the same money, so do need a punchdown tool, but you get a PROPER, SOLID CONNECTION with the LAP keystones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for hard wired connect Used the double outlet in the lounge where the router is situated and wired with Cat 6 cable to single sockets in 2 bedrooms. With the right kit, all wired up, tested and worked first time. The only criticism is the 40mm pattress box which was a bit too big for my liking. Replaced with a 32mm box which is more flush with the BT/Virgin boxes coming into the house . . . i jump from one to the other if i don't get good renewal deals!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Nice deep back box to hold wires. A bit fiddle to terminate. As my eyes are not that good. But overall a good product

Is the input an ethernet plug from the router or would I need to connect each individual wire?

Asked by: IanMu
The sockets on the face plate you can connect to your Network devices (PC’s, Printers, Smart TV, Router) using a RJ45 lead On the back are the IDC connections which are eight individual wires which can be connected to 4 pair Cat 6 Network cable https://www.screwfix.com/p/philex-cat-6-2-port-double-rj45-ethernet-socket-white/96906

Can this be recessed into a wall?

Or better to use a 35mm metal back box Cheers
Asked by: Lndon765
The more room that is available the better the results as the more even the radiuses of the cable are the better the performance at higher bandwidth frequencies, so if you can use a deeper box. However mostly in makes only a marginal difference in many installs.

Could the socket be fitted to an existing 25mm flush mount backbox?

Asked by: Davy42
You could use the Faceplate on a Flush mount see https://www.screwfix.com/p/philex-cat-6-2-port-double-rj45-ethernet-socket-white/96906 but the cabling will be tight which will limit the bandwidth if the twists in the cable are not correctly done.

What tools would I need to install this myself to terminate two ethernet cables?

Asked by: Rokho
You will need an Philex IDC tool see https://www.screwfix.com/p/philex-insertion-tool/67391 and if not in stock try https://www.screwfix.com/p/c-k-punch-down-tool/3846k?_requestid=284408#_=p

Is a Cat 6 2 Port compatible iwth Cat 5E cables?

I'm looking to instal a 2 port socket to run cat5e external cable into
Asked by: pva1964
Using Cat 5E cable with this socket is possible but the overall available bandwidth would be reduced.
