A little over a year ago PKM posted a comment on the Instructable you were looking at. It's a little further down the page, but here's what it says:

To everyone trying to use this to connect two computers to one modem jack or similar, that's not what it is for. This device will not let you change your end point connections, it merely allows you to "piggyback" two separate end-to-end ethernet connections over one length of cable by using all eight strands rather than only four. You still need the connections at each to match up (two router jacks to two computers or equivalent). In the home, this essentially means that if you want to connect two computers upstairs to two sockets on the router in your basement, you only need one length of cable trailing down the stairs, but in the basement you still need a splitter to connect that to two sockets on the router.

And, in case anyone had any illusions, you can't plug splitters into splitters into splitters and have 8, 16 etc. connections over one cat5.

Is this relevant to your situation?
