Product ID: 110VDSLEXT2
The StarTech.com VDSL2 Ethernet extender kit lets you connect a remote network segment or device to your network, using RJ11 phone cable.
The network extender is a simple, reliable, and cost-effective solution for spanning your network across long distances. While maintaining high speeds, the extender also safeguards your investments by providing surge and ESD protection to your connected device.
The VDSL2 extender reduces the hassle of networking your devices or workstations by overcoming the 330ft (100m) distance limitations of common CATx Ethernet cable. Now you can connect equipment at longer distances using existing RJ11 cable while still retaining 10/100Mbps fast-Ethernet speeds.
Perfect for connecting isolated terminals, kiosks, or server rooms using single pair copper wire such as telephone cable, the extender kit lets you transmit and receive data at distances up to 5000ft (1500m) at 17Mbps, or 1000ft (300m) at 100Mbps throughput.
This handy extender helps you network separate buildings at the same location, and saves you money. Using legacy plain old telephone service (POTS), you can deliver network access across an existing phone line infrastructure, which is perfect for older buildings.
Alternatively, you can couple the extender with a single point-to-point RJ11 cable, giving you more options for providing network connections in situations where standard CATx wired or wireless access is unavailable or unreliable.
A true out-of-the-box solution, the extender kit includes interchangeable transmitter and receiver units that are completely customizable using the integrated DIP switches. Setup is fast and you can be up and running with no software or driver installation required.
The 110VDSLEXT2 also features compact housing that’s perfect for desktop or wall-mount applications, and is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

When you troubleshoot issues with a VDSL Extender, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. To identify what the source of the issue is, observe the power LED, LAN LED, and VDSL LED on the units.
If the power LED is not illuminated for the transmitter or the receiver, complete the following:
If another LED is not operating as expected, make sure that the components in your setup are working correctly. To test your setup components, try the following:
When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:
Make sure that the DIP switches are set to the following:
If there is still no VDSL connection or if there is intermittent connection issues, try the following:
If you cannot establish a network connection between your remote and local units, you need to do the following to make sure that the issue is not related to the network configuration:
If the issue is not related to the network configuration, you should receive a response from Computer 2.
