Got a call last week to go out to a new oil battery field office and terminate the installed cables. They purchased an RTM. The prints shows each outlet to be two cables one for voice and one for data, there is only one cable in the outlets. They asked us to add a second cable. There is insulation between the floor joist and the bottom is double drywalled for fire rating. The outlets upstairs have a 3/4 pipe stub with the one cable in it. The data cables were installed at the factory, so they are between the fllor jiosts. My thoughts were to get one of those long flexable bits and try to drill down, find the hole make it bigger pull the cable up and then fire caulk. Anyone with a different idea? Thanks

"Pre-fab" in other words. The manufacturer needs to acquaint themselves with 21st century wiring standards, like 568 and 570.

This is something I would have to see to be able to give advice on. I have no idea what you are talking about.

Are you talking about a two story building? If so I'd say you're screwed, if not just take a long bit and drill through and caulk.

If you could pull the cable out leaving a pull string behind. Then pull it back in with a second cable installed it might work if the cable is (loose) not stapled or ty-wrapped inside the walls. call I would do it this way a very simple solution.

So the Smart Jack recommends running POTS lines and 10/100 Base-T on the same cable...I bet the backboard looks mighty purty too. That's right a backboard isn't recommended, better if you just "splice and dice". :rofl:

I prefer Cat 5e and above.
