I have a case where 40 network cables need to me moved from their termination point (a patch panel) on one floor down one floor and 20 feet away. The existing cable flat out won't reach. About the only thing I can think to do is get a bunch of Cat-5 splice connectors and splice another 40 feet on to each cable then drop them though the floor.

Does anyone have any experience with these CAT-5 splicers? Do they work and are they reliable? Any suggestions?
