Wiring diagram for a converter from usb to ethernet

I want to make a converter that plugs into a usb port and the other has a RJ45 socket. I have a standard usb cable which I've stripped back to reveal 4 wires and a shield. I wish to put an RJ45 socket on this end. The result is that one end plugs into a usb port and the other end has an ethernet cable RJ45 plugged into it

How do I connect my pc to my router? There is no ether port in the back. Can it be done thru the sub?


There are more ways how to connect PC to router in your case.
My assumption is that your PC has no Ethernet port.

  1. Use wireless connection. Activate Wi-Fi card in your PC and connect it to router by wireless network.
  2. In case you do not have wireless router or you prefer cable link you can buy an USB Ethernet adapter.

What is the function of the red WAN socket on the back of my BT Homehub 5?


The red socket on the back of the HomeHub5 is to connect the Hub to an Openreach modem and thus provide a network facility for the whole house, wireless or via ethernet cable. Since the Homehuh 5 has the modem built in anyway it seems a bit redundant unless you have an RJ45 (ethernet) plug connecting to your telephone line rather than the more usual similar but slightly smaller RJ11 plug which goes in the grey socket.
By the way I thank you for your testimonial and could find no other way to answer it than answering this former question of yours! Maybe I'll find a better way later on !
Anyway all you need to connect your Netgear is to use an ethernet cable from one of the yellow ports on the HomeHub and then configure the Netgear as necessary to act as a wireless access point, or wired router. The HomeHub5 is however quite a good wireless access point working at both 2.4Ghz and 5GHz bands to give you the best speed, as well as the network ports (yellow) on the back.

I have a (like) phone chord and can't find where to put the other end. We have it plugged into the back of the router, need to know where to plug the other end.


Hi

It depends on which country you are in.

It depends what Broadband wiring setup you have.

It depends which type of cable you are talking about (see images 1 and 2 below)

In some countries, the RJ11 to RJ11 cable goes from this device into the phone Socket of an ADSL filter. One RJ45 to RJ45 cable goes from the Router into the Ethernet Socket of the ADSL Filter. Another RJ45 to RJ45 cable goes from the Router to the Computer. The ADSL Filter then goes into the Phone socket in the wall.

You need an ADSL Filter in every Phone Socket that has a telecommunications device attached to it (Fax Machines, Answering Machines, TV Set Top Boxes, games Consoles etc.). The ADSL filter separates Telehone, Voice & Fax Data traffic from Broadband traffic and allows all to share the same phone line with out conflict.

See Network Diagram below.

In some countiries or wiring setups, the RJ45 to RJ45 cable form the Router to the Wall does not need to go via the Phone Socket and can go directly into its own dedicated Ethernet Wall Socket.

The USB port on the printer is loose and therefore not communicating with my computer.


You can open up the printer and try to fix it, but in fact you will probably need a new part which will have to be soldered in.

An easier solution would be to use the parallel port connection, if there is one. Newer printers don't always have them, and I don't think the 3055 has one.

On the other hand, newer printers often have an ethernet connection, and you should be able to use this instead of the USB. I'm pretty sure the HP 3055 has an ethnet port. You'll need an RJ45 wire. You can get a USB to RJ45 adapter if you need to plug the other end of the cable into your PC's USB port (e.g. if your PC has only one ethernet port and you're already using it for broadband).

Hope that helps a bit. Good luck!

Rj45 socket repair


Your laptop has a card slot, it will take a pcmcia expansion card.
It may be cheaper to buy an ethernet card with a rj45 port, rather than trying to repair the laptops built in port.
I found some from about £10

How do i connect my printer with a usb to a Ethernet (RJ45) cable


Hi Tony,

I assumed you'd like to share the printer on network. I recommend to buy a printer server device that will connect USB port of printer and that device has RJ45 port that can be connected to router or switch hub to share the purpose. Hope this gives you an idea.

Best regards,
Rosener

Modem connection


Your modem should have a RJ11 (phone) jack and a RJ45 (ethernet) jack. Phone line-in to modem RJ11. Ethernet cable from RJ45 to modem to router; maybe labeled WAN or modem port . Ethernet from any of the switch ports (or the only one avail, depending on your model) to you pc if it has a ethernet card in it. After that it's all up to the configuration.

Wired internet


The "smaller" plug you're talking about is an RJ45 plug, used for dial-up Internet - you'll get nowhere with that. You have a couple of options if you want to hook up your Ethernet cable. As you mentioned, yes there are plenty of USB to Ethernet adaptors out there, this is the simplest way of getting an Ethernet port on your computer. There are also PCI Ethernet Cards if you fancy your chances at installing it inside the computer, this will make it a little tidier and they're usually a little cheaper too. Your PCI slots, once installed will have the plugs located at the back of your PC, horizontally angled at the bottom - you usually have at least 4 slots, at the max of 7.
