Question about Leviton 5225WSP Switch and Outlet
Cable company trying to charge me $20 a pop to activate ethernet jacks in all my rooms, he activated one free of charge but I want all of them activated. He someone designated one as being ''hot'' and the rest are deactivated. I have the following setup in my closet:
1. The black box is the cable modem
- Theres an ethernet running from the cable modem to the Leivton switch, which is all the way down on the bottom left.
- Theres a coaxial, split to all cable drops obviously to give me cable TV
2. Theres the green patch panel in the center. As you can see theres this white ethernet cable pushed into the upper right. This one is interesting...becuase the rest are blue drops wired to the patch.
3. On the left hand side of the patch there are 4 ethernet cables plugged into, running from the patch to the 4 port switch.
4. Port 4 on the switch currently has its status light blinking and active, the rest are off. (Port 4 is obviously the drop he activated which is in my living room)
Now im trying to figure out...just how to activate the other ports on the switch. Maybe I need to take another look at the patch panel...I just dont know what hes doing to activate the switch ports. The wiring on the patch for all seems identical...as far as I can tell. Dont know if its 568A or B
Unless your switch is very, very different from all the other switches I have used, simply connecting the ports to live systems is all you need to do. Have you tried this?
It may be that the patch panel is not wired, and that is kind of a pain.

SOURCE: My tenant was complaining taht
The three black wire are as follows: One is the hot wire. One feeds the closet light. One feeds the lights for the kithen and bath. Turn off the power at the circuit breaker or fuse panel and disconnect all three black wires and be sure they aren't touching anything. Turn the power back on and using a test light or meter determine which black wire is live. Turn the power back off and mark the hot wire with a pen, marker, or piece of electrical tape. Connect the wire you marked with a wire nut to one of the other two black wires. Turn the power back on. If the closet light comes on, that is the wire that you want to connect to one of the terminals of the switch. If the lights in the kitchen and bath now work, leave these wires connected together and connect the third wire to one of the switch terminals. Turn the power back off. While the hot wire and the wire for the kitchen might have both connected to the switch terminal, this is no longer allowed by code. Instead take another piece of wire of the same type and connect it to the hot wire and the kitchen wire with the wire nut and connect the other end to the other switch terminal. There should be a green ground screw terminal attached to the metal frame of the switch. Using a green or bare copper wire connect this to the ground wires in the switch box. Reinstall the switch and turn the power back on. Everything should be good now. If the fuse blows or the breaker trips, replace the switch.

At the switch you have a feed wire coming in this brings in power which originates in the electric panel. You also have a feed or feeds goings out to other lts or switches, this you seem to have on the switch. instead of the closet switch loop.undo all the wires. find the only hot this is the one wire you can touch to the others and make different lts come on i reccomend getting a electric tester to do this. FInd the wire that goes to the closet lt. Once your sure put it to the side. wirenut all other wires together with the hot wire. this makes all other switches independantly hot. connect the hot to the switch and the closet lt to switch. I HOPE THIS MAKES SOME SENSE TO YOU . let me know if i can help

one of the white wires has power on it constantly....that wire connects to the black wire of the leviton.......the other white wire which has no power to it is going to whatever needs power so that wire connects to the red wire of the leviton....the green wire connects to the metal box where your mounting the leviton.

Don't break away the tab.
It sounds like you have Hot wire connected to wrong side of device.
Electricians don't guess, they test.
Separate wires. Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground.
Tester lights up on Hot wire.
Hot connects to brass screw(s). This will feed power into each switch.
Wires going to Load (lights) connect to each silver screw.
