Re: cat5e

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

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 http://networkcable-tester.com/2011/05/23/cat-5-wiring-5/ 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 www.monoprice.com they only cost about $4 for 18' cables

I am trying to put a cat5 cable up in the landing with a cat5e socket but its not working some of the lights go out no the cat5 tester an i do not know how to conet the socket can you help me thanks for...


There are 2 main wiring schemes 568A and 568B the sockets should be marked somewhere with this information. You need to make sure that you use one scheme through out the network.

The pairs and pins should be noted on the sockets and you should be able to match them up using the pictures above.

Thanks

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.

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

Max cable lenght for cat 6e cable


The cable standard provides performance of up to 250 MHz and is suitable for 10BASE-T / 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T / 1000BASE-TX (Gigabit Ethernet). It is expected to suit the 10GBASE-T (10Gigabit Ethernet) standard, although with limitations on length if unshielded Cat 6 cable is used. Category 6 cable can be identified by the printing on the side of the cable sheath.

Cat5e is suitable for 10/100/1000baseT ethernet for 100 meters, when properly installed.
Cat 6 is also good for 10 gig ethernet for 37 meters, but that is pretty short, unless just in a server room.
There is no Cat 6e, but Cat 6A will be good for 10/100/1000/10GbaseT ethernet for 100 meters.
Unshielded Twisted Pair has no ground shield around the wires. It is the standard in the US, where most network standards were defined. There are extensions to the standards to allow for the more common in Europe, Shielded Twisted Pair.
Some Cat-6 cables are too large and may be difficult to attach to 8P8C connectors without a special modular piece and are technically not standard compliant. If components of the various cable standards are intermixed, the performance of the signal path will be limited to that of the lowest category. The maximum allowed length of a Cat-6 cable is 100 meters (330 ft) when used for 10/100/1000baseT and 37 meters (120 ft) when used for 10GbaseT. This applies for UTP cables only. Shielded Cat 6 and Cat 7 cables are capable of 100m.....sodeep
