"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!
"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."
"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 ."
"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!"
"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.
"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!"
"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"
"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.
