Extend your LAN across the parking lot or
down the road. The Ethernet Extender bridges two LAN
locations up to 1.4 KM apart using standard old telephone or RS-232
wiring. Depending upon the characteristics of the wire and
its length, the link speed may be as high as 100 Mbps.

The Ethernet-Extender extends 10/100 baseTx ethenet
circuits up to 1,400 meters. The Ethernet-Extender uses
twisted-pair telephones wires (AWG24 or better) up to 1.4km. Speeds are automatically maximized by the unit upon power up. and range up to 100 Mbps.
Now you can utilize older telco wiring to extend your
ethernet LAN throughout the facility.
The Ethernet-Extender is used in pairs (and sold in pairs).
The only configuration is to set a four position DIP switch, indicating
that one unit is the remote and one is the local, and the profile to use. That's all
there is to it.
Power input is 5VDC supplied by the included 120-240 VAC power supply.
Other power supply options are available.
These are used to extend 10/100BaseT ethernet LANs using existing copper wire pair. While it won't work modernizing every old installation of telephone wire, it's amazing how many installations work well with telephone cables that has been installed for years.
