Repair a Broken Ethernet Plug – All

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/06/09

The locking tab of RJ45 plugs breaks very easily. Replace it by two nylon cable ties (aka zip ties), in minutes.

[WayBack] People have been asking about the fact I use old Xeon boxes for my development platforms (and indeed more). I want to cover what I use, why I use them, … – Alan Cox – Google+

I still run a couple of HP XW6600 workstations with [WayBackE5420 processors (of the [WayBackHarpertown family) to host VMs on. Works splendid.
