I have fitted a double RJ45 socket on either side of the room. (One for HUB to vision box adn one for TV internet) I want to use patch cables to plug one end to vision box and other to Hub5. I used the 2 pair (orange/orange &white and blue/ Blue&white) long ethernet cables supplied by BT. I used the BT cable instead of cat 5 because it had a low profile to fit under flooring and I had 2 long cables spare. I've cut RJ45s off and have tried to connect using the colour coding diagrams on back of each socket with no luck. (on A or B scheme) I am using a propper tool. Where do I put the four wires on the socket? Thanks in advance.
Thanks - I have run wo cables but each only has 2 pairs in. Looking at the rj45 that was connected on either end only 4 pins are used on the long cable BT supply with the hub. So I intend to use one socket for BT vision box and the other for smart TV.... I dont know which connections to use on the socket though.
The plug at each end of the BT ethernet lead is wired Pin 1 OW pin 2 O pin 3 BW and pin 6 B.
Thanks but dont see how this helps.i need to wire the BT ethernet cable ninto a jack socket not a RJ45 plug and these diagrams do not match how the cables were wired.
Electrons aren't particularly fussy about the colour of the wires. You need to connect the same pins together at each end. Use one pair for pins 1&2 and the other for pins 3&6. However, if you require GbE speeds, you will need to connect all 8 pins at each end, i.e you will need 2x 4pair cables for your 2 circuits.
