Well if you are asking how it should be crimped, PC to PC regularly, if it is not a smart port LAN then you have to use a cross-over cat 5 cable. but it won't really matter if you have smart ports. for the PC to switch connection, same principle applies, but if they have smart ports, that the type of LAN cables should not matter.

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

How to share one utp connection into two


Hi,

for 10/100 connections you can do this (look on eBay for "Lan Splitter cable"). This is because for lower rate Ethernet there are spare pairs of wires in the cable. If you intend to run 1GBps then it needs all of the pairs in the cable and you will not be able to use the splitter.

The better solution would be to either use a switch in the room to break out the one cable you already have, or to run a parallel cable. As you may need extra LAN connections in the room in the future, the switch is generally the best method.

If this helps, please leave feedback - if not let me know and 'll try and help some more

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.

Difrence of lan wan


The Lan limit on unshielded twisted pair cable (UTP) is 300 ft for a local area network (lan). The cable uses the 802.3 Of course if fiber is used in a LAN then this # can be extended substantially.

Now the main difference between the LAN and Wide Area Network (WAN) is that LANs typically have 1 brodacast domain and froward packets at data link (layer 2 of the OSI) level using MAC addresses.

The WAN operates at the network level (layer 3 of the OSI). WANs are and reads IP addresses. Routers can extend far distances (as you said 40-60km) and band with depends on distance. the further away, the more attenuation on the line.

I hope this helps.

A wide area network
