You have to cut off the bad connector, strip the outer sheath about an inch down, untwist the wire pairs and put the wires in the correct slot on a new rj45 connector and use a crimping tool to crimp it. You could also buy a new cable for a couple dollars on monoprice.com.
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.
Did it work before? Is this a new install? Try replacing the cable with a known to be good one. You may have used a "crossover" cable by accident, in which case it won't work at all. You need a "patch" cable. Sometimes the wires connected inside the wall jack can get loose. Pull the wall jack and inspect the wire connections. Use a small screwdriver to push the wires into the slots if any look loose.
It's possible that the network adapter (NIC) drivers are corrupt. Check "device manager" to re-install the driver. Also, the router may be misconfigured.
Sometimes this problem can be solved by shutting down the computer, then pulling the power cable on the router and let it sit unpowered for a minute or so. Then re- power up the router. Once the lights are green, boot the computer and it should come up.
If I understand you right the metal connector is on the wall connector and the wire is off of it if this is the case take some pliers and take the connector off the wall then take the connector and put it back on the wire just slip it in and squeeze the bottom of the metal connector so it tight on the wire this should help..
