i have a patch panel and hardwiring already setup in my office. The patch panel is 24 port and all the ports are engaged. All my switch ports are engaged.

Now, I have a printer connected to a wall point (rj45) which I want to shift to a new room where there is no LAN setup. I want to have two RJ45 wall plugs in the new room so that I can connect one RJ45 port to have my lan in the new room and the other RJ45 wall port I want to use for my printer

There is no option other than LAN (no wireless). Please help me and tell me how do I get the two RJ45 wall plate plugs in the new room up and keep my lan running.....it is a little urgent for me please help.

Additional Info: I have already wired and made the wallplates in the new room but i dont know where to connect the other ends (as I dont have any free ports or space either on the patch panel or switches)........please help

Welcome to TSF!

You will need two new small 4 to 8 port switches and a patch cable.

Complete a single cable run from room to switch. Remove one cable from the existing switch and put it into the new switch. Use the new patch cable to go from new switch to 24 port switch.

Since the single cable run is now connected to the 24 port switch I would place the 2nd switch at the end in the room.

You know after you put the printer there you are going to want to put more devices there. Now you are ready.

Or buy a 48 port switch and another 24 port punchdown block. This is the way I would go thinking longer term but its your choice.
