Could you just split the cable ... although you'd only be able to use Fast
Ethernet over it. It's not recommended, but it should work assuming the 2
buildings share a common earth.

You can buy "Cable Economisers" from the likes of CPC in the UK.

Subject: [m0n0wall] Low-cost VLANing

I know this isn't strictly on-topic for the list, but since there are so
many knowledgeable networking folks on the list, it seemed the sensible
place to ask.

Has anyone found any cost-effective VLAN-capable switches? Everything I've
seen is hideously expensive (£300+), and even more expensive than that if
you want gigabit. I'm trying to find a cost effective method of VLANing a
single cat5e link between two buildings. Adding extra cables isn't feasible
- there's a pavement over the top.

Any info greatly appreciated.
