Good kit but beware of wires
15 Aug 2013
By DazzaTbonesteak
, Poole
"Kit has all you need to put in a good network. 50m is plenty of cable and the quality is OK. The junction boxes and connectors feel a bit cheap but nothing broke on installation and it all worked
However, I did experience a problem connecting the wires to the connectors. Basically, the wires are individually pushed in to the connector with the special tool (supplied) and the idea is that the insulation on the wire is 'cut' to expose the inner core to make the connection. I had problems getting a good connection and I only found this out after using a cable tester that I borrowed.
So if you get no connection after going through the hard work of running the cable, try stripping a little of the insulation where the wire makes contact in the connector and all should be well!
I would buy this product again"

All the bits you need
9 Oct 2012
By BusyRob
, Winchester
"Good quality and easy to make up a reliable basic network.
One grumble - the mounting boxes are dual socket and do not include a blanking plate if you don't use both despite the instructions saying they do.
Take care with the cable - not on a reel so easy to get tangled.
And the 4 patch leads are all 2m which is a bit of overkill. I bought some 0.5m ones for neatness."

Good value home networking kit
11 Apr 2012
By gram
, West Sussex
"A good value starter kit. Contains enough to network 2 computers to a router. Contains 4 dual connection boxes but only enough connectors for 2 which is a bit strange and kit does not include any blanking plates so don't forget to order a pack, the should of included single housings really."

Network Cabling Kit

By fchamil1
, West London
"This kit is excellent value if you are setting up a small network for home or office you can get up to 4 computers working very easily .
All the items are of good quality and despite the price don't feel cheap .
Take a moment to plan your routes and your away , the kit is easily expandable with additional parts available from screwfix .I would certainly buy this again .

blanking plates
3 Apr 2009
By foxyloxy
, bishops stortford
"In the manual supplied it indicates that there is a blanking plate supplied for the socket spaces you do not use in the surface mount boxes. I could not find these in my kit so I contacted Philex via their website and they sent me another 4 socket connectors - great service!"

Does exactly what it says
19 Mar 2009
By Hoodles
, Brighton
"Moved business premises and found that I needed to hardwire between floors. Looked into buying separately but decided that, due to my inexperience, buying a kit was cheaper and safer. Found this to be the cheapest, went out and bought it.
Did a little research online before hand so that I knew roughly what I was doing but the instructions were so simple that I dont think it was necessary.
The wiring takes a couple of minutes after the first 'practice' run. I was done in about an hour and that was only because I had to run the cable downstairs and round skirting.
The only slight downside is that in the photo you see 4 boxes with 2 ports in each but only get supplied with 4 connecters. As I did not fully read or take in what I was reading I assumed you could use all 8 ports. No big deal as extra connecters are only a couple of quid each.
All in all a good product."

Wired netorking
12 Jan 2009
By triptych
, Co Antrim
"I have bought several of these kits when setting up routers/networks for family & friends and always found them extremely easy to use. There is everything here that you would need - except for crimping tool and cable clips (bought separately) - but unless you're going to go into it in a big way then there's no need to go overboard!
I'm sure there must be about £40 to £45 quids worth of components in this kit if bought individually.
Well done Screwfix, yet another bargain for the computer enthuasist.
ps, someone mentioned about blanking plates ..... there are none, you don't need them!"

Does what it says
3 Apr 2012
By TechDave
, Birmingham
"Good kit for first timer installing home network.
Contains everything you need, just add drill and screwdriver etc ! Or there are sticky pads to attach boxes to hard surface - I didn't use these as I prefer a solid fix.
Good cable and fittings, could do with some additional blanking plates but does job nicely."

Cabling Kit
31 May 2011
By Shreddy

"Everything you need to get started, but unfortunately there are only 4 RJ45 sockets but 8 ports on the wall boxes, so we had to buy another one to complete the job. The cable wasn't screened or sheathed, but did the job"

Everything you need in one
8 Apr 2010
By Yoda6
, Derby
"I bought this kit to replace a WiFi connection that was unreliable. Everything that you need to run a wired connection is included in the kit. Not sure why they include 4 junction boxes with 2 RJ45 socket cut-outs each, but only 4 RJ45 keystone sockets. Easy install, less than an hour to complete once the cable run was sorted.
Highly recommended."

Easy Home Networking
7 Apr 2009
By Ericd
, East Lothian
"bought this kit to connect up PCs and Games Consoles in the house.
found them easy to install, one tip is when you are connecting the wiring to the jacks is to start at the cable end (not the end were the patch lead connects into the jack)
excellent value for money, seen the mounted boxes on sale in a DIY store for around £5 each (and thats without the jacks).
Going to order another kit soon along with some jacks.
only down side is the blanking plates, not sure how they fit?"

Network Cabling
19 Aug 2008
By DoctorC
, Yorkshire
"Simple kit with all of the necessary parts to construct a simple home network. Good value for money when compared to buying the items individually.
Only negative is that the blanking plugs for unused sockets are not that secure. But even so I would certainly use this kit again and recommend it to others."
