The wires/colors in a category 5e cable run in pairs. They should be tightly twisted together, mostly white with a blue tracer. mostly blue with a white tracer- mostly white with an orange tracer- mostly orange with a white tracer, mostly white with a green tracer- mostly green with a whte tracer, and mostly white with a brown tracer- mostly brown with a white tracer.The jack you have sounds like a standard telephone or cat. 3 jack. If the jack is being used for a standard telephone line, you'll need to connect one of the wire pairs(usually the white/blue pair) to the green and red terminals on the jack.Make sure that the same pair is also terminated at the main telephone junction.

    RCA Packaging clearly states "Terminates in-wall Cat5e installations" and RJ45 Wall Plate. So I have the same question solid colors Green, Brown, Blue and Orange wires match up bult all white with trace Grn, Blu, Org and Brn don't match up with colors available of Yellow, White, Red and Black. So with the wall plate locking tab up from the wire side wires to recepticle are (going clockwise from 1 o'clock): Green, Yellow, Brown, White, (continuing clockwise at 7 oclock) Blue, Orange, Black, Red (10 o'clock position). So for a straght through how do the wires match up?

    That color code is all wrong for standard cat 5 wire. it sounds like an older color code. Heres a old color code to new color code chart to help convert it.

    White/blue = Green
    Blue/white =Red
    White/orange = Black
    Orange/ white = Yellow
    White/green = White
    Green/white = Blue
    White/brown = Brown
    Brown/white = Gray

GE Network & Coax Wall Plate has 8 wires of solid colors. My CAT5E cable has 8 wires, only 4 of which are solid and correspond to 4 of the solid colors on the wall plate. The other 4 wires on the CAT5E...


Hello

Your cat5 will make up 4 pair. org/org/wht being one pair and so on.

So as long as you keep them in pairs you will be ok.

Meaning. Pair one from cat5 org and org/wht to wall plate wht and brn.This would be one complete pair.So the wall plate colors are different from cat5 but as long as you stay in pairs and go from left to right on your conections you should be ok.

Cat5e Single Socket RJ45 Ethernet Network Face Plate


My preference is to use the T-568b if there is not already a standard where you are doing the installation at. The A and B are just different standards to terminate an ethernet cable.
TIA/EIA-568-A, T-568B RJ45 Wiring Standards

To answer your question..If you want a straight through connection you would use T-568B (or T-568A) at both ends of the cable.

T-568B T-568A

Wiring on a RCA RJ-45 wall jack


the RJ45 wallplate is not meant for ethernet. It's an 8P8C connector for a phone. Will it work as a network jack? Maybe. I wouldn't use it, but if you really want to try, wire it thusly:

1 Blue --- Orange/White
2 Orange --- Orange
3 Black --- Green/White
4 Red --- Blue
5 Green --- Blue/White
6 Yellow --- Green
7 Brown --- Brown/White
8 White --- Brown

I'd still recommend a CAT5 wallplate with a CAT5 jack.

What color wires were there ???
What kind of jack, a new one that had...
white blue/blue
white orange/orange
white green/ green
white brown/brown
?????

If so, the white/white blue would go to the same wires.
If you had red/green and black/yellow, the red/green should go to the white blue/blue.

Cat 5 Issue you replied to


The color is not so important as the cable follow the same standard on both ends.
It has been my misfortune to find non-standard wiring in a facility, so long as they keep the relationship of the pins the same it will work, if the installer did not then you cannot trust any of the work and MUST either redo it all or have it all tested and certified by a cometent network cable installer.

Cat 5 wiring issue


I know this is an old thread, but for the sake of helping someone else in the future, I just got off the phone with the Phillips Help Desk and this is the way they told me to wire it up the RJ-11 & RJ-45 combo jack I bought (PH60037):
  • RJ-45
  • Jack colors - CAT 5e
  • Blue - white/orange
  • Orange - Orange
  • Black - white/green
  • Red - Blue
  • Green - white/blue
  • Yellow - Green
  • Brown - white/brown
  • White - brown


  • RJ-11
  • White - white/green
  • Black - white/orange
  • Red - blue
  • Green - blue/white
  • Yellow - orange
  • Blue - green
He said it was the standard configuration used by the phone companies for some time.
Phillips Help Desk # for phones/PCs (800-233-8412)
Hope that helps someone else down the road.
