Wiring an ethernet wall socket for BT Broadband connection from hub to Vision+ Box

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.

You would of been better running two cables . So two lots of 8wire as this gives better service then plugging into modem

Re: Wiring an ethernet wall socket for BT Broadband connection from hub to Vision+ Box

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.

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.
