Question about Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router
My modem is connected to my router. The router then is connected to my hub. I have a linksys 5 port workgroup hub. ALL OF THIS WORKS. I can put a cables off the hub to my 2 computers and all works too. The problem.... We wired our office so we did not need a cable running from one end to the other across the floor. The in wall connections all test good. However when we connect the hub to the wall jack and try to get signal on the other end of the office, it does not work. I've been told by two computer people it should. What are we doing wrong? We even took the in connection at the wall from the router and jumped it straight into the other wall connection and it does produce signal at the other end of the office. Cannot a hub send the signal to the other end of the office?
OK - I'm trying to visualize your setup...interesting!
In other words: You checked the cables and they are all working fine?
Test all involved patch cables either with a cable tester or by plugging in a computer and see if there are any problems. amke sure the patch cables are "straight through", either 568A or 568B identical on both ends of the cable.
Do you have the chance to use another hub or switch for testing purposes?
Just come back here and leave a comment with your findings - I'm happy to help.

The key is "it tested fine with the electrician". Yeah, how is it wired?
Category cabling has a specific order that the wires go in. You can pick any combination of wires you want, but the ones that work are pairs of 54 12 36 and 78, on both ends.
Get someone to test it with a DATA tester and I'll bet you find the problem.
