Re: cable router

Make sure that you have followed the router manufacturer's instructions to configure the router to work with Virgin. Typically this would include entering your Virgin username and password into the connection section of the router's configuration menus.

I have two computers. One is connected to the internet with a cat 5 cable. I bought a new cable for the new computer which is a fastcat 5. However, I cannot get this computer to work on the internet. If i...

I'm assuming that you have a modem or a modem and router combination with multiple cat5 ourputs. You have tried both computers with the Cat5 cable and they both work fine. If this is the case, I would suspect that you have a faulty fastcat 5 cable.

I only want to know the meaning of the different colours of cables that are used in crossover cables?

the standard colours for CAT5(e) or CAT6 ethernet cable are:

green, green stripe
blue, blue stripe
orange, orang stripe
brown, brown stripe

the typical setup for an ethernet connection in an RJ45 (the crystal end with the connection tab towards you) is

1 green stripe gclosen.jpg
2 green
3 orange stripe
4 blue
5 blue stripe
6 orange
7 brown stripe
8 brown

Wires 1 & 2 are used to transmit data from the PC to the router/modem (TX) and wires 3 & 6 are used to recieve information from the modem/router (RX). in this fasion, information flows along one pair or another and is expected to arrive at that pinout. the router/hub/modem takes care of the transition to the next cable or out to the internet.

In a crossover cable ONE end is configured as above, but the colours for wires 1, 2, 3, and 6 are exchanged so that when no hardware is between the two PCs/components the signal is transmited at wire 1 & 2 and recieved on pins 3 & 6 on the other system/component. the other colours are placed for backward compatibilitiy and other applications, such as power over ethernet.

following the standard above allows anybody familiar with RJ45 connections repair a connection with a standard colour code and pattern without having to see the other end. If you know you need to replace one end of a patch cable, you use the standard termination.

I keep losing my wireless connection inside my home. My modem is in the basement and I want to use my laptop upstairs. I use an N router and have cable internet. My house is also wired with Cat 5 wiring...

Well , the connection upstairs depends on the capabilities of the router that how much coverage it can give for the wireless clients associated.

Since , it is a N-router so try upgrading the drivers for it , the technical term will be firmware.Upgrade the firmware of the router to the latest one and you might have your issue resolved.

Make sure you can go online directly to the modem. If that is confirmed, you can connect the router directly to the modem and install it using the setup CD that came with it.

How to solve the lan problem

With only Cat 5 UTP cable segments, the maximum length for any cable segment is 100 meters, make sure that you don't exceed this. Also crossover cables are for switch to switch connections. You must use a straight thru cable from PC to switch port

I have a broadband DSL modem/router in my home office. I also have 2 CAT5e ports there. I want to feed the Internet signal from the router (one of the ports on the back) through a CAT5e point up to my...

Hi Joe,

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.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Jason

Belkin N Wireless Router doesn't connect to Modem

If router is brand new you should have a set up disk. the set up disk will walk you through it or you might log onto Belkin site to see a walk through set up. If you can access internet from modem to router to internet. That means router is functioning properly. To go completely wireless you will need to secure your network and setup your access codes. Definitely use the setup disk to do this. A unsecured wireless network is a nightmare waiting to happen. Good luck

Replacing dsl modem

yes, that should work.. the only problem may be the Default Gateway address that could have been manually configured.. I would look at the config of the router and make sure you have this information written down, but otherwise it should be just plug and play (pray).. :)
