Hi I've been looking at the forums regarding these kinds of products and I've got a question regarding their use. Because of the way the ethernet cable was run under my carpet in my place, I want to try to use something like this to extend it a few feet. How bad would the signal/noise problems be? Can you give me some real-world context? Appreciate it!

You're looking for a 'coupler'. Normally these are a small plastic device about 1" square with two RJ-45 (or RJ--11 if it's for a phone line) connectors in it.

They work fine and as long as you're not trying to extend the total cable length beyond the maximum limit of 100 m, then it will work just fine.

I've gone one sitting on my desk here at home that I made with two keystones and a 6" long piece of cable. I even tested it on my tester at work and it tested fine....including the SNR test.
