I have been on many sites with Cat 5 systems. What I cannot understand is why are the sockets numbered oddly i.e 1--6 2--7 3--8 etc. Instead of 1--2 3--4 5--6 etc.


Not sure if I understand your question.
Cat 5 (and higher) cables consist of four twisted pairs. The idea is, that disturbances by magnetic fields compensate each other this way. I suppose that the arrangement of the wire on the plugs and jack come from good ols analogue days, where the telephone-call was only on two wires (=one pair). To keep it as undisturbed as possible, the center of the plug (pins 4 and 5 on a rj45) was used. The next pair was spread over them and therefore used pins 3 and 6. Pair three was put on pin 1 and 2, and pai four on pins 7 and 8.

Hello I need to hardwire a tripplite n001-010-bl catse cable to a belkin cat5e keystone jack bel-r6d024-ab5e I do not know the correct wiring configuration to do this. Please advise?


The wiring is done as if you are building your own CAT5e wire. See the following URL: http://www.beginnercode.com/2006/11/09/connecting-network-cable-ends/ . There are other sites. As long as both ends are the same the cable will work (unless you want a crossover connection).

For a PDF version see: http://www.n-tron.com/pdf/cat5ecableschemes.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(Keystone jacks for ethernet come in two types: plug in RJ-45 and punch down the individual wires with the tool. All of the punch down jacks came with a diagram, had the wire arrangement indicated on the unit, and a cheap plastic punch down tool.)

Rewiring a house putting in a net work for the future . what cable cat5e ,cat5e screened , cat6 , cat6 screened . would cat5e screened be better than cat6 unscreened ? cables away from mains ,


I'm guessing when you say screened and unscreened you mean shielded or unshielded. Shielded wire is used when there is a higher possibility of electrical or RF interference. In a typical household those type of interferences are uncommon. As far as the Cat.5e or Cat. 6 decision, Cat 5e is tested to 150 Mhz. compared to a 250 Mhz. rating on Cat. 6 therefore with future speeds in mind I'd go with the Category 6.

All Cat 5e jacks and patch panels are color coded, making it simple to get the correct wire in the correct position on the jack or etc.

I have a cat5e wall plate(tph552) a cat5e wire4 colors don't match and 4 colors do ( brown,orange,blue,green,) are ok then wire has 4 that are white with (brown,orange,green,blue,)stripe. and wall plate...


The wires/colors in a category 5e cable run in pairs. They should be tightly twisted together, mostly white with a blue tracer. mostly blue with a white tracer- mostly white with an orange tracer- mostly orange with a white tracer, mostly white with a green tracer- mostly green with a whte tracer, and mostly white with a brown tracer- mostly brown with a white tracer.The jack you have sounds like a standard telephone or cat. 3 jack. If the jack is being used for a standard telephone line, you'll need to connect one of the wire pairs(usually the white/blue pair) to the green and red terminals on the jack.Make sure that the same pair is also terminated at the main telephone junction.

How do I wire up a cat 5e socket to extend my network.


hi, good morning, i'm here to help, the modules should be color coded and the cat 5e will have the same colored wiring when you strip off the jacket, you should use a puch down tool, punch down the 5e wires into the corresponding colors of the module, strip a small portion of the 5e jacket but not the inner pairs of cable, untwist the inner cables and insert and punch down the pairs, the modules should come with some kind of instructions, please let me know if i can be of anymore help

Wiring cat 5 jack


If you're doing both ends, it doesn't matter. I tend to use "B" because if the other end is a patch panel, it natively (ie all wires in order) comes as a "B" panel. Less thinking on my part :-)

Lan cable Setting for Switch & PC to PC LAN Connection.


If you are asking about connecting two computers together with a hub or switch, plug them into the switch/hub with standard patch cables (cat 5e or cat 6).

If you are asking about connecting two computers together directly using a LAN cable, then you will need a "Crossover" cable (cat 5e) wired specially (oranges transposed at one end for the common -B pattern) for direct LAN connection.
