    the sheath from a long cable im running got ripped off in one spot and two wires inside (orange, orange-white) got cut and i now have no connection for that computer. is it possible to repair the cable and not have to buy a new one? if so how?

    Not worth it, for as little of a cost it is to make ethernet cable replace it.

    The answer is yes you could - I wouldn't do it unless running the line again would be a nightmare. You just cut the whole segment out and then add extensions on either end. But a new cable is the preferred method.

    cable is cheap, but you could use a coupler.
