Does anyone know if there is a Wireless Broadband Router that also has at least 12 ethernet ports? The wireless capabilities need to be 54mbs G. Also, does anyone know where I can buy a female to female coupler?

Routers tend to have a 4-port "Network Switch" incorporated, but there is no reason why you cannot plug additional switches into the existing ports to expand the number of available ethernet connections.

Any *decent* computer shop should have RJ45 connectors. PC World only seem to have RJ11 ones for modem cables :-(

Maplins have them - click here

My nearest PC World stocks RJ45s, but at up to £15 depending on length, they are vastly over-priced. The same Blekin cables can be found on Ebuyer for a few pounds and Ebuyer's value cables are less than a pound!

Blekin = Belkin!

It isn't the actual CAT5 cables I was meaning when I said PC World don't stock them, it is the female/female couplers to connect two ethernet cables together. My PC World has the RJ11 type, but not the RJ45 ones.
