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
I was trying to make an Ethernet cable about 100 feet long and what I found; it was not working in non-standard color scheme. However it works fine when re-arrange its color combination into standard, (Same cable, only color difference).So, why this Color scheme is important? And what is the secret behind its color combination?This is Standard Color Scheme for Ethernet.
I'm installing a wired network in the office, going to upgrade from a cat 5 to a cat 6. My question is cat 6 cables clipped same as cat 5 using same rj45 clips? And is coloring same, am going wg-g wo-b wb-o wbr-br.
I'm having an issue with my network adapter. It's not detecting the Ethernet cable, thus not able to connect to my home network. The trouble shooter (Windows 7 home 64) says it canning detect the cord. But the cable works fine on my other computer. The network adapter is a Nvdia nforce networking controller. All the drivers are up to date. The computer was completely formatted so it's a blank slate
I can connect to the internet using my neighbors wireless router but when I try to use my ethernet cable it connects me to "network 16" but the internet doesnt work. Ive tried different cables and different wall ports and that didnt work. It has been working before but I disconnected it to go somewhere and when I came back I had this problem. I use Windows 7 and Im trying to connect using Marvell Yukon 88E8057 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller.
i reformatted my computer 1 month ago, when i try to connect with ethernet cable it doesn't connect, but when i use the usb cable which i got with my modem it connects.btw i have a acer e389 which runs on XP(media center).
Ive been using an Ethernet cable to connect to the Internet for a while now, it was working fine up to yesterday where I left my desktop open for a few hours and came back to find that I have no Internet connection.
I used my laptop to test the cable out and it works fine, the wireless works fine too. There doesnt seem to be anything wrong with the modem since I still have Internet on the PS3. I used a different cable to test the modem again with my laptop and I had internet access. The desktop is still connected to the modem but it only gives me a network connection with no Internet.
I tried restarting the modem but it still wouldnt work and I also tried to disable then enable the connection.
Im using Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller with the latest driver.
Can't log on to computer running win xp sp3. I'm getting message that ethernet cable is unplugged but it's not unplugged. The modem/router was installed by Verizon (for FIOS connection) in February 2011. Internet was working fine until a couple of days ago. I have looked at other posts on this issue but have found nothing that would solve the problem. My old dial-up modem was still installed in the computer and had a question mark on it in device manager so I removed it. I thought maybe there was an IRQ conflict as the modem used to use IRQ 11 and the network card (linksys) uses that sometimes as well as IRQ 10 but that didn't work.
Computer keeps saying that the I need to plug in a ethernet cable but I already did. This is happening on my Windows 7 Ultimate partition. I also have have a Mac OSX partition and the internet is working fine on that partition.Here is what I get for ipconfig/all command:[CODE]
I just bought a 30m CAT6 cable which I installed inside the house, now since my router is on the floor above me I bought a 30m cable to be able to have it downstairs. I don't really know if it has something to do with the PC or if it is the length of the cable that is the problem. But when I try the PC on the main floor the speed is 15-20mbit/s and when I try it on my PC downstairs, all I get is a maximum of 10mbit/s. The strange thing is that ping/jitter is the same both upstairs and downstairs?
I am designing a cabling system to interconnect all the buildings in my school.In one of the building, I have 2 patch panels and switch to interconnect cables that comes into the building with cables that runs to the rooms.From what I understand, connectivity should be something like this:
1. Exterior cables coming in through the entry point. 2. Exterior cables terminates at the back of patch panel. 3. Patch cables run from the front of patch panel to a switch. 4. Patch cables run from the switch to another patch panel which connects the interior cabling that runs to the wall socket in each room.
1. Which ports should I use on the switch to interconnect exterior cable to the interior cable? They should be a connection between the exterior cabling and the interior cabling and both terminates in the same switch, but different ports. How do you allow communication to happen?
2. How do connect all the buildings to the router that connects to the internet?
I have a printer (epson cx6600) I wanted to connect to our router here so everyone can print to it. It only has a usb connector (which you would typically connect to your pc)... I did notice they have usb to lan cables out there and was going to buy one and connect it to the router that way.
Everytime i plug the cable into my PC it doesn't detect it and the helper says to insert an ethernet cable.When I go to network sharing centre and check my connections it says network adaptor unplugged.im using wireless at the moment.My pc is a packard bell ipower x9810. it was windows vista but i upgraded to windows 7, i checked the packard bell website and can't find any networking adaptors. I have also checked device manager and it says - Belkin N+ wireless USB adapter #4 NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet. there is no yellow exclamation mark.
A few days ago, I noticed that my computer wasn't picking up my wired connection anymore while the wireless connection was still working fine. I opened up my network adapters and my Local Area Connection adapter wasn't even showing anymore, only the Wireless adapter. I updated my drivers, tried different cables and even a different router but still no dice. This morning, when I booted up my system, Windows said it was installing driver software for Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet Controller. I got really excited when I saw Local Area Connection in my adapter menu and plugged in my ethernet cable. Nothing happened and my laptop refuses to recognize the ethernet cable plugged in to it. It's a Dell XPS 1640, Windows 7 x64 with Service Pack 1.
P.S. Usually a little orange light appears in the ethernet port on my computer when a chord is plugged in. When I turned on my computer this morning with the chord in, the light was on. When Windows finished booting, the light went off.
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?
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?
Currently have wireless router to internet with pc's all connected in home network. Is it possible to put a cat5e/6 cable between two client PC's for a temporary boost in speed for for accessing shared files between these two machines.(i.e. 1Gbit rather than 56Mbit.)Both PC's would still want individual connections to the router and internet, but how do you make sure accessing shared files goe's through the faster ethernet cable rather than the router?
My Internet is down. I appear to be getting power from the modem as all the lights are lit up. I have a wireless router. On my desktop I clicked on the Network icon and it said "3WIRE***" is in range but requires a Network Key (also called a WEP Key or WPA Key)? Could this be the problem? I've never had to enter a password to access my internet before. Do you know how I can find (or reset) my password? It's a D-Link router.
My hard drive crashed and had to reinstall my OS using manufacturers disk now everything works but the internet, the integrated ethernet card is not listed under network adapters in the device manager, its a clean install of windows xp media center edition 2005 sp2, the device manager shows no drivers missing.
i am using win7 64 bit on dell n5110 and my lan is not working properly. it wont even detect the cable . when i plug in the cable its like nothing happened. but when i uninstall and reinstall the driver, it sometimes resolves the issue. but i have to do this every time.
