My LAN cable that is...

It's just a few meters shy of where I need it to go. I seem to recall a while back I was able to use some kind of barrel connector but it was for phones. But it worked for LAN. Is there something similar for LAN?

Buy a new one. It would probably cost as much or less then this barrel connector you speak of.

It's called a RJ45F coupler. Radio Shack should have it.

Replacing it is impractical. I'll look for the RJ45F coupler. Tough to look for a Radio Shack since I'm in the Philippines but I'll try.
