Dont know how to hook up cat5e cable to a leviton cat5e jack

I am moving my computer line and am needing to install a jack to the end of a cat5e line. The jack has two possible wiring options one. It appears that one would be for phone and the other for a computer. The instructions are rather vague and don't indicate which wiring approach to use.

Any insights you can provide?

Those two jacks are telephone jacks (RJ-11) not ethernet (RJ-45). The jack marked telephone is for a phone, and the jack with a rectangle symbol is for the telephone line into the wall.

You need to buy an ethernet PCI card - without one you can not use a cat5e line (which has an RJ45 connection).

JACKS DO NOT CONNECT


Wow! Without more information it is hard to know WHAT type of cable you are referring. It could be:
1. RCA
2. HDMI
3. COAX
4. CAT5 or CAT5e or CAT6
5. Mini audio
6. USB
7. Etc...
That said, most difficulties with cables not "hooking up," involves trying to plug the wrong type of cable into the wrong plug. For example, people often confuse USB for HDMI and vice versa. Double check to make sure the cable type and jack type are identical in SHAPE and in number of PINS. Pin configurations can vary especially on older systems and/or cables. Last, but not least, have plenty of light when checking for these items, including whether the jack and cable are opposite "gender.". I know that sounds ridiculous but I've seen even experienced individuals make that mistake. If all else fails, take a photo of the "jack" and take it along with the cable to a Radio Shack for their examination and help.

Hope this helps!

I need networking cables, which cables are best for use.


CAT6 cables & jacks are better than CAT5E.
CAT5E cables & jacks are better than CAT5.
CAT5 cables & jacks are better than CAT3.
CAT3 cables have problems going faster than 10Mbit/second.
CAT5 cables support 100Mbit/second, and seem to work with 1000Mbit/second ("gigabit") devices.

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.

Need to know what i need to connect my prewired home (with cat5 cable running from box in garage to jacks in 4 rooms) to the internet. currently just have cable modem in office.


You would need a 4 - 8 port router... with a wire going to each Jack... and these would plug into the Router ports, The router plugs into the Modem. You have to put the Ethernet plugs on each end of the Cat5 cable. Then you setup your network. But if you have a wireless router you simply need each PC WiFi enabled, IE: A wireless card in each PC, that way you do NOT need Cat5. Then each PC, simply connects to the Router/Modem.

Make sure you can go online directly to the modem. If that is confirmed, you can connect the router directly to the modem and install it using the setup CD that came with it.

Cat5e jack by leviton has eight slots, but my cat5 cable only has 4 wires in it. I punched the wires down on the back four connectors. As long as I do the same on my ends, this should work right? Please...


Cat5 has eight wires, anything less is for telephone. Your cabe is for telephone if it has 4 wires. Either return the cable and get 8-wire cat5 or go to another store for your cat5 wire.

Plz explain me exactly for which purpose RJ-45 cable used ?


RJ -45 is a type of connector used on cat5, cat5e....etc cables to connect networked devices...the RJ stands for registered jack but there is really not much you really need to know about it....a RJ 45 JACK is a little bigger than a telephone jack, you'll notice the female type of input on your computer or laptop and the male end will be on the end of the cable that goes into this jack....hope this helps

Using patch panel fields and patch cables versus running cat5e and field crimping a modular RJ45 end


I would tell you what I think of your IT folks, but I don't want you to rate this response as IA :-)

Yeah, they have a point. Wiring point-to-point does cut down the chances for failure....provided they used the proper plugs and don't plan on moving them around. It gives them job security because you have to label each cable and when the tags fall off, only they know where the cables go. Plus, a structured cabling system give you, well, STRUCTURE. You're not at the mercy of the guy who "crimped" some imported 8-pin plug on a piece of wire. Wait were those solid or stranded wire plugs? It may run 10 Base T, but it is unlikely that it will run 1000 Base T.

A proper infrastructure contains a patch panel properly labeled and jacks at the computer end, with patch cords of various lengths to the computer and switch. We're a Leviton house, so the link is to their web site.

Just my opinion.
