How to wire Ethernet Cables

Cat5 hookup

As you can see in the above picture, no two pairs have the same amount of twists per inch. Note that the Blue pair is on the center pins and conveniently corresponds to the Red and Green pair in a normal phone line. Make sure to test the cables before installing them. There should be enough of the cable jacket inside the connector to crimp against. Solid ethernet cable is meant for longer runs in a fixed position.

Plenum rated ethernet cable must be used whenever the cable travels through an air circulation space. The wall jack may be wired in a different sequence because the wires are actually crossed inside the jack.

Be careful not

This does not mean your experiences have been the same. The pairs are twisted together. Hold the grouped and sorted wires together tightly between the thumb, and the forefinger.

The other two pairs, Brown and Blue, can be used for a second Ethernet line or for phone connections. Hold the load bar so the staggered holes face toward the cable.

The crimping tool has a razor blade that will do the trick with practice. This protects the pairs from crosstalk internally. Make sure you end up with the correct one. Here recommend a set of network installation tool kit which contains all you need to wire a category cable. You may be able to determine what type it is by crimping one without a cable.

Some ethernet interfaces

Below is a chart for reference when picking cable for your application based on the standards for that category. The twists are extremely important. Note that the loadbar has slots on one side with a flanged edge on one end.

Note how the green pair is not side-by-side as are all the other pairs. Each pair consists of a solid colored wire and a white wire with a stripe of the same color. Modular connector jacks come in a variety styles intended for several different mounting options. This configuration allows for longer wire runs. Flatten the wires out as much as possible, because they need to be very straight for proper insertion into the connector.

All the wires are

Insure that the wires are firmly seated to the end of the connector. Also note how the wires go all the way to the end. There are many different applications for each type of conductor, but there are two main applications for each type you should know about.

Some ethernet interfaces can cross and un-cross a cable automatically as needed, a handy feature. Newer versions of cat cables i. All the wires are all the way in. Be careful not to nick the individual wires. Various Ethernet network cables are being invented.
