Belkin Cat5e Network Cable Won't Work

Jan 12, 2013

I just purchased a Belkin prepmium CAT5e networking cable and plugged it into an internet wall jack and hooked it up to my ps3 and the connection won't work. Does it have to be hooked up to a router? Is a CAT5e cable the same as ethernet? or will I need to buy a different cable?

Cat5e Or Cat6 Cable For Outdoors / Underground Use?

Jun 30, 2012

Just about to run about 30 metres of Ethernet cable underground from one building to another. I know there's quite a few forums like this which suggest to go for cat5 mostly for the price, not sure when these were advised but cat6 doesn't seem to be too much more now...

So just wondering if it will be worth going for cat6 for a future reference if you will, ideally if products ever advance to support it. Just that I don't fancy digging up the cable in a year or so.

Of course I'd rather go for cat5e but wouldn't mind adding a bit to the budget if it's worth it?

Also does anyone know if it's any more difficult to fit the connecters to cat6e? Are they just the same as rj45?

Cabling / Cards :: How To Connect CAT5e Cable To GE Wallplate

Dec 5, 2012

I am trying to connect CAT5e riser cable to a GE #76536 network and phone wall plate.The problem I am having is the CAT5e cable has 4 twisted pairs of wires as follows: blue/white, green/white, orange/white and brown/white. The wall plate connection has 8 distinct colors; blue, white, green, orange, yellow, black, red and brown. (or at least that's what they look like to me)None of the white wires from the CAT5e cable have any striping. They are all solid white. I've found color charts for matching striped wires, but I am at a loss to figure out how to connect these white wires to the proper terminals

Jun 26, 2011

Currently have wireless router to internet with pc's all connected in home network.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG320N - How To Get Network Storage Thing To Work

Apr 8, 2010

I recently purchased a WAG320N, primarily for the faster networking speeds and the ability to attach a USB hard drive to my network.The only problem is that I have little idea how I get this network storage thing to work. Cisco haven't really supplied any documentation on how to work this.So far I've plugged in a hard drive and formatted it through the router's web interface, with no trouble at all.But, after doing this I have no idea how to access my hard drive on the network.I would assume that it would appear automatically on my network for me to access freely.

SMCD3G Cable Modem / Belkin Play N600 Router - Small Office Network?

Apr 21, 2011

I'm trying to network a small office and have the following devices:

SMCD3G Cable Modem
Belkin Play N600 Router
Digi Mil-H1130 8 Port Ethernet SOHO Hub
Hubbel Cat5 Patch Panel (goes up to 12)

We're replacing our DSL line with a Cable line. Our DSL was a one piece wireless router/modem. When it was installed, it was inside our office, next to the server, and plugged into Wall Jack 1 for all the other computers to connect to. Our server plugged into this modem/router. We didn't have the Belkin Router at the time. The Patch Panel wires went into the Hub behind our office and everything was fine.

The cable modem is now next to the Hub and Patch Panel. I bought the router since we didn't have the wireless feature that the DSL had and everyone I spoke to said I need a router to set up the office. I ran one of the LAN lines from the modem into the Router where it says Modem (WAN). From the Router, I ran the line 1 (LAN) into the Hub. (Does the number matter if nothing is plugged into it in our office?) No computer is able to connect to the internet except my laptop which connects wireless. It works fine.

Another problem. We have a server computer that's Unix based. In order for anyone to connect to the server to access the office software used, the IP address of the router must be or the computer your using won't connect via Multiview 2000 Terminal Emulator. I can't connect to the server because the IP address of the router is still I don't know where I have to go in the router settings to change it. I've tried a few spots and it tells me the IP address is invalid. The settings I had with the DSL modem/router were:

Modem IP address -
Subnet Mask -
DHCP Start Address -
DHCP End Address -

It's not like I need to run wires. Everything is set. If something is plugged into a wrong spot, I can switch it.

Additional info:
There are 4 computers in the office and 8 numbered wall jacks.
Server computer - Wall jack 8 (IP address of this machine -
XP Machine 1 - Wall jack 4 (can't connect to server! No internet.)
XP Machine 2 - Wall jack 1 (Is able to connect to the server! No internet.)
Win CE Machine - Wall jack 9 -

I assume. I have a wire that goes through the wall on this machine and it isn't marked. (Rarely used so not sure about server connection)

Wireless Windows7 laptop - connects to the internet fine since it bypasses all these wires. Can't connect to server.

Under the DHCP client list, only 2 computers are listed. The one that has internet is my computer. The other computer listed is wall jack 4 and that has internet now.

my computer -
wall jack 4 -

The router IP is and the Cable Modem is If I type either number into my web browser it will take me to the router setup page. I don't know where/how to check if it's only one device acting as DHCP. What I want to do is be able to get online with all the computers as well as have access to the software on the server through the office wall jacks. In order to do that I need the router IP address to be and then I'd be able to connect to it.

Right now, one computer is able to connect to the server via hard wire but can't connect to the internet.Another computer is able to connect to the internet via hard wire but can't connect to the server.My laptop can connect wireless to the internet but not the server. In a perferct world, all the computers should be able to connect to both the internet and the server. Right now, it's one or the other with both hard wired machines and I don't know why. Is there a wire not in the hub right? Is a patch panel wire plugged into the wrong port of the hub? I don't know what's supposed to go where. tell me "wire X from the modem goes to Port Z of the router, and Wire Y from the the router goes to number V on the Hub, and that wire goes to number T on the patch panel for the Port number R in the office to work..." I'll try it.

Then I think all I need to do is change the router's IP address to and everyone should be able to connect to the server through the Multiview 2000 Terminal Emulator.When I tried to change the IP address on the router it's telling me it's not valid. Under LAN settings it says - when I try to change it to it tells me LAN IP address is invalid. I clicked on More Info below that in the router page and a pop up gives me info. It says:

The "IP address" is the Internal IP address of the Router. To access the advanced setupinterface, type this IP address into the address bar of your browser. This address can be changed if needed. To Change the IP address, type in the new IP address and click "ApplyChanges". The IP address you choose should be a non-routable IP. Examples of a non-routable IP are:

192.168.y.x (where y is anything between 0 and 255, and x is anything between 1 and 254.)

10.y.y.x (where y is anything between 0 and 255, and x is anything between 1 and 254.)

172.z.y.x (where z is anything from 16 to 31, and y is anything between 0 and 255, and x is anything between 1 and 254.)

Belkin G Wireless Router Doesn't Work?

Mar 29, 2011

I have this Belkin wireless g router, which I had for a year. I was using the wired connection since then until I, at last, was able to use it's wireless connection but it only lasted around a week. After that, the modem light on the router kept on blinking and the internet light wouldn't turn on. I also couldn't connect to the router anymore(wired and wireless), neither could I configure it. I reset it but it still didn't work.

I am having a bit of trouble. I have a Belkin router (this is irrelevant) across the house, which is extended by the Belkin wireless bridge/repeater in my bedroom. The device in my room boosts my WiFi signal for my MacBook and iPhone, and the LAN (ethernet) port on the back allows my Debian server to connect to the network and internet. I have a Linksys switch that I wish to use, for I have another computer that requires an ethernet connection. Here is what happened:Debian 1 is connected via ethernet, no problem.I shut it down, unplug cable. Run cable from bridge to switch's uplink.Plug another ethernet cable into port one on switch, run it to Debian 1.
