Small switch as a splitter
I've been asked to come up with a temporary solution to have a phone and PC in a room with no data points (I arrived at the school long after the building updates/data points had been installed) for today.
I immediately thought of a splitter, as the Head's office next door to this room has one (well, one in his room and one on the patch panel) but it seems we've got nowhere local that sell them. I've just remembered that I've got a small switch at home (not sure how many ports but enough, though it's only a cheap-o one so it's not something you'd have running the backbone if you see what I mean) - in theory, if I connected the PC and Phone to the switch (port 1 & 2,) then put another cable in port 3 from the switch to the free single data point in the Head's office next door, would that work?
Probably being dimwitted, but this is my first time dealing with this scenario.
