A friend of mine had a gigabit ethernet cable running from his router to his desktop. He then decided he wanted a wired connection for his laptop as well. According to him, he was able to split the connection going to his desktop to power both computers. I have heard of people plugging 4 conductors from an ethernet cable into a head which they plug into one port on their router and the remaining 4 to another thereby allowing them to use 1 cable for 2 computers, but it sounds like my friend used 1 router gigabit ethernet port for two computers. Is this even possible? Thanks ahead of time. I can't figure this one out.
