It seems you are using dial up connection at home that is through telephone line. In hotel you are using broadband or any other connection. For both pathch cables and their connectors are different. One is RJ45 other is RJ11. You can identify yourself by checking cable patching.

Do you mean that you tested the patch lead that connects the patch panel and the hub?
The RJ45 connection at the workstation (one end) and the RJ45 connection at the patch panel (at the other end)?
If these checked out OK then the RJ45 connection at the hub could be faulty, try a different port on the hub, do you get a link light?
The LAN card in the conputer could be faulty, try another computer at the "faulty" workstation to check the network connection.
How are you connecting to the port in the back of your router? if you have crimped a male plug on to some UTP cable then this may be the problem. UTP cable has a solid condutor and needs a different male crimp plug than UTP patch cable, which has stranded conductors.
I suggest you connect the UTP cable between the office and the loft to an RJ45 wall or surface socket in the office, use a terminating tool designed for the make and type of outlet you use, i.e. if using an ADC socket use the ADC termination tool. The sockets are designed for solid cable and have a colour code for you to follow. Then use a factory terminated patch cord between this socket and the router port.
I assume you have terminated the cable from the office onto one of the patch panel ports and want to use a patch cord to patch from this incoming socket to the sockets that are terminated onto the cables going to your other rooms. If you have access to a laptop connect this directly into the router port and ensure you have an internet connection, then plug the patch cord connecting the loft port into the router and take the laptop into the loft and ensure you have a connection at the incoming port on the patch panel. If you get the connnection there then use a factory patch cord to patch to a room you would like a connection in and then take the laptop to that outlet and ensure you have a connection.
If you want to run outlets in multiple rooms without re-patching every time then you will need to have an active switch in your loft and connect the port from the office to this and then patch out of the switch ports to the various room outlets.
ok, i think what you mean is this. Crossover cable is for connecting 2 computers together without the need for a router. also called pc-to-pc. Straight cables need the use of a router or hub to connect 2 computers together. Hope this helps, if not let me know more info.
I am going to suggest with that message, the the TV does not understand the signals it is getting from the PC.
Reboot the laptop while connected to the TV, and turn the TV off, then On, while the PC is connected. If you continue to get the message, look in the manual for the TV to determine the reason for the message.
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.
You can use hub for that matter. Use RJ-45 Cables (Crossover) for connecting just two computers and connect each unit with the cable inserted from your cpu to the hub. To create an RJ45 local area network in Windows, you will need: Several computers running Windows (computers running two different versions of Windows can be part of the same network); Ethernet cards on a PCI or ISA port (with an RJ45 plug) or built into the motherboard. When applicable, make sure the diodes on the back of the network card light up when the computer is on and that a cable is plugged in.
2) I determined the IP addresses of all my computers and tried to "ping" them but could not "ping" any of them. I can "ping" the IP address of the computer I am working from but I don't think that helps in TS this situation.
3) I'm wondering if my router is fully set up correctly. Do each of the computers have to be "saved" in the router's settings?
