Re: cat5 wiring

I have made my own cables but it is not worth it. Buy the ones already made and you will have much fewer problems down the road too (trust me). We started network at work from scratch and ended up with about 100 pc's. and I would never make my own again.

I need to wire a network cable into a wall plate purchased at home depot. the plug is not rj45 but a block with 8 screws and different colored wires. the problem is the colors don't match cat5e wire.any...

I have tried this, and my suggestion is to go back and get the proper wall jack. How much are headaches worth to you? If they are worth more than the wall plate, just **** it up and get the correct one.

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.

Require assistance in connecting cable to a single CAT5e configured wallplate

Well, what can I say? you only need a cat5 ethernet cable with rj45 plugs and plug one side in your computer and the other in the wallplate, beside that with this information I can not say anything else.

good luck

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

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).

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.
