Need to purchase large amounts of network cable.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok I saw the Bulk cat 5e cable on newegg, but i couldnt find the tips or a crimping tool on the 'Egg i would assume since they carry the cable they would have the tips and the crimping tool. CAn some one find them, it would be best if it was from the Egg as the person who is going to buy everyhting wants to get it all from one site. Oh on a side not the reason i want it from the egg is im also purchasing 15-18 Nics and again she wants it all from the same site.

Here is a crimping tool. You could probably get one from your local hardware store. (Possibly Radioshack or OSH <= this place has some unexpected hardware tools. lol)

These are the RJ-45 plugs (I'm assuming these are what you mean by "tips"). 10 pack.

Here is your cat 5 cable crimper. My friend bought a 1000 foot contracting grade Cat5 cable and wired up his house with it, he now has a 1'6" loom sitting in his room! And Here are your cat5 plugs, they come in 100 for $12.95, so wire up your town with it!

You can buy giant boxes at home depot, or other large hardware store. All you need to do is cut and add the ends.

I say a big box for 50 USD.

For cables, I'd suggest this place: http://www.compunettech.com/
I have purchased cable in bulk and already cables from here as well. If you see something cheaper, they will match the prices. I got all my stuff to network my home in Gigabit from them.

Their prices are really good for either bulk or already made cables. Way way cheaper the any of the local stores (best buy, circuit city, small comp shop, etc )

Also, go here to see how to make the cables if you decide to do it:
