Cat5 jacks

Recommended Posts

On two of my controllers one of the Cat5 jacks no longer work. I can put one at the end of the chain but not both. I assume I can take the things apart to determine if I need to re-solder a connection. Having never done that type of miniature solder work, I'm a little reluctant. Each controller has one good working Cat5 jack. Anybody ever try using a splitter to make the one working jack able to accomodate two cables? Will this work?

I think you could use a Momoprice cat5 splitter, or you could also use phone cables between a couple of your controllers to get an extra jack (since those are usually unused).

Did you look at the non-working jack to see if any of the pins are bent or touching?
