Some testers do not test ALL the wires. Some will only test pair 1 and 2. You may want to use a DVM (Digital Voltmeter) set on the ohms function and check continuity on each of the eight wires from RJ-45 to RJ-45 connector or use a cable tester that will check all the wires. If you use a DVM check 1 to 1, 2 to 2 etc. for continuity. Good will read 0 ohms, open will read infinity or OL on some meters. 90% of all cable problems are poorly crimped or broken wires at the RJ-45 connector. It is difficult to be sure which end has the bad connection so you may need to change BOTH RJ-45 connectors. Do one, then check the cable, if it doesn't work, do the other one. It is a 50-50 shot. I prefer and encourage the rewiring color code using the EIA 568A standard. Starting at pin 1 the color code would be orange-white, orange, green-white, blue, blue-white, green, brown-white, brown. You don't have to do it that way, but you must make sure that the same color wire is on the same pin on each connector. If all else fails, you can go to you neighborhood computer shop for help in installing connectors. It takes a lot of practice to do it right. Hope this helps

What cable do I need to connect to non-wirwless computer

Hi David,
I'm going to assume you're trying to connect a printer to your PC...

If you are, it should have come with the cable already...
most wired printers today come with and use this type.

I am having problem with my network. I am wondering why the new cabling I made I having problem connecting to my assisting network. I use belden cat5e and did not even exceed 30 meters lenght. pls help..

Ethernet cables can be 100 meters in length. I would imagine you didn't punch the cable correct.
Make sure you have the wires in the correct order if they are not it wont work. Just stick to making straight through cables as most routers, switches and hubs are now smart enough to reverse logic if needed.
Here is wiring of A to A You can also buy ethernet tester to see which pins are not connected correctly.
If your having trouble making cables I'd suggest just buying some from they only cost about $4 for 18' cables

I've connected both ends of a Cat5e cable using the GigaMax 5e snap-in connectors. At each end, I used the T568B wiring standard. Then, I connected my computer to one end of my cable assembly via a 3 ft...

It doesn't matter whether you use the 568A or 568B wiring as long as you use the same at both ends. (If you use A at one end and B at the other you wind up with a crossover cable, handy for some applications but not what you need.) The easiest way to check a cable is with a cable tester, and then all you need to do is look at LEDs to see any problems. You can also use an ohmmeter to check that each wire goes the right place, but it's more work.

When using insulation displacement connectors, be sure you're using a punch-down tool to seat the wires in the appropriate slots. You can use the plastic tool often supplied with these connectors, or you can get a better quality spring-loaded one at reasonable cost. Don't rely on the plastic "stuffer cap" since it sometimes doesn't push the wire down fully into the metal contacts. I often find a wire that looks seated, but isn't, is what is causing the trouble. Also, especially if the lighting's not good, it's easy to mix up wires. Punching to the 568A code at one end and B at the other is not a hard mistake to make.

Hdmi will not work only use of component cables will.


The HDMI[1] input on your TV receives digital audio

and uncompressed digital video and audio from an

HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a

DVI[2] device.

This input is designed to accept HDCP[3] program

material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-

compliant[4] consumer electronic devices (such as a settop

box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).

The HDMI input is designed for best performance

with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.

To connect an HDMI device, you will need:

• one HDMI cable (type A connector)

For proper operation, it is recommended that you use

a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter

difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4

ft (5m).

HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.

Separate analog audio cables are not required (see

illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may

not output digital audio signals. In that case, you

may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.

However, if you connect analog audio cables with

this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will

not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.

To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset

properly, it is recommended that you follow

these procedures:

• When turning on your electronic components,

turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or

DVI device.

• When turning off your electronic components,

turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.

To connect a DVI device, you will need:

• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable

(HDMI type A connector)

For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-

DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).

The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables

I have two des-1005d network switches. i want to communicate betwwen them with a cat5e cable. the cable is made as cross through and distance is about 70 meters. with one switch pc is connected and at...

Max distance for Cat5e cable is about 100M, but that is the best case scenario, essentially a straight line, down a building. If you have any kind of interference, like flourescent lighting, high voltage lines running parallel to the ethernet cable, the distance will be much less than 100M. Although it looks like you have 60 feet to spare, anything interfering with the cables will cut the signal down. Try to move the switches closer together, make the cable from pc to switch longer and ADSL modem to switch longer and cable between switches shorter. Use a known good straight through ethernet cable, as modern switches don't require crossover cables.

From Wikipedia:

According to the ANSI/TIA/EIA standard for category 5e cable, (TIA/EIA 568-5-A[5]) the maximum length for a cable segment is 100 meters (328 feet). If longer runs are required, the use of active hardware such as a repeater, or a switch, is necessary.[6] [7] This 100 meter limit is all inclusive. According to some authors,[who?] the practical limit for permanently installed cable is about 90 meters, leaving 5 meters at each end for the patch cables that connect the end equipment to the wall panel.

Hope this helps.

I bought 1 box of belden cat5e for LAN. when i test it with LAN tester the cables are good but when i connect it to the modem/hub it is not connecting.. please help me.. thanks..

If you've tested the cable and your not getting a link light, there is a posibility that either the port in the switch or the network card is bad.You can try moving the cable to an existing working port on the switch to see if it links up. If not then try another device like a laptop or printer with a NIC card on the cable
