Leviton Home Network Patch Panel Question

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.

SOURCE: Connecting Leviton Decora light 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

SOURCE: I am trying to replace a two wire light

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.

SOURCE: I have a leviton combination (2) switch... I want

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.

My linksys network switch is not connecting network computer, what can i do to get it back to work?


Do you have any activity lights on the Linksys? If not your switch has no power a hardware problem. Try to power off for 5 seconds and restore power on the Linksys unit. Try to shut down (do not restart) all computers. Are all the activity lights off? If not again power off the Linksys for five seconds and restore power. Power on the computers and verify the activity lights are now green for each computer. If the computers are not networked and the activity lights are green, check your network settings on your computers, which could have incorrect TCP/IP settings or workgroup. If one activity light is not green for that Ethernet connection, check your cable connection or replace the Ethernet cable. The workgroup should all be the same name. The TCP/IP address should be the same with the exception of the last set of host digits which should be unique to each computer address.

Adding new extension to Nortel Norstar Meridian Phone System


you should have a panel designated for the system phones only and a panel for your wall jacks.

you only need to take two wires from the designated phone extension you want to activate to the wall jack you need activated. If you have a RJ 45 panel all you need to do is patch one end to the system phone port and the other end to the wall jack port make sure on the back side of the panel that the wires are punched down. The thin wires will need to be punched down with a special punch tool that you can purchase from Home depot or Lowes depending on what kind of panel it is. White/Blue,Blue/White,White/Org.Org/White.White Green/Grn/White.White/Brown.Brown/White.Solid White with violet color stripe.Solid Violet with white stripe is the color code in which to punch down for each cable. What city are you in may i ask?

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

Check these things:
  1. Is you Ethernet adapter Active
  2. Is your Cable the correct one (NOT a cross over)
  3. Refresh your IP Address for your Ethernet Card
  4. Reboot your computer and power down your modem, then power the modem up AFTER your windows is logged on
  5. Verify your modem "really" can connect, use another computer.
  6. Verify the are no network issues with your ISP

Wiring cat 5 jack


If you're doing both ends, it doesn't matter. I tend to use "B" because if the other end is a patch panel, it natively (ie all wires in order) comes as a "B" panel. Less thinking on my part :-)

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.
