If you've tested the cable and your not getting a link light, there is a posibility that either the port in the switch or the network card is bad.You can try moving the cable to an existing working port on the switch to see if it links up. If not then try another device like a laptop or printer with a NIC card on the cable

    Just so i've got it straight, the cable was termed in B standard tested good, and theres no link light. I'd re-test the connections to see if there's a partial connection on one of the crimp ends.

    When your saying link are you talking about a link light or access to your network? also, whats the footage on the wire you ran?

  • pc_aguinaldo Oct 07, 2010

    link= no connection/ no light

    laptop/pc to hub
    laptop/pc to modem

What network cable does a belkin N600 use RJ11or RJ12


Look again. Those "RJ11/RJ12" are not 2-pair/3-pair small Telco jacks but rather the 4-pair lager size found in Telco data com circuits (ancient DS0/T1 technology) and commonly now for Ethernet often referred as Local Area Network, LAN, data communications at 10 up to 1000 Mbps.
An RJ45 is larger and can not fit into an RJ11/RJ12 jack. The smaller RJ11/RJ11 will insert and make contact with the inner pins but if the line is active the Belkin device now has/will have a blown port. Don't!

Your Belkin N600 expects one Ethernet cable from a cable or DSL modem into the WAN or Internet port on the Belkin N600 for link through your carrier to Internet.

A four port gang of Ethernet RJ45 plugs is also present and is where your in-house PCs and Ethernet peripherals plug in. On the OEM website usually there is a colored quick setup guide to help you.

Some OEMs designate a yellow Ethernet wire from cable/DSL/satellite modem to WAN port and blue for internal LAN devices to try to reinforce outside verses after the NAT firewall inside the router for your internal LAN. The signal doesn't care about color it's for you.

The internally generated WiFi or WLAN (wireless LAN) is part of the LAN side but allows WiFi radio connection to client devices.


The 4-pair Ethernet cables have 8 conductors wIth the wire end of the plug to you and the contacts held upwards you will note the four pairs and their colors blue, orange, green and brown each with one conductor of the pair white with the color and then the color solid or more correctly the color with white stripe. Signals are on pins (left to right) 1&2, 3&6. On standard cable both ends are the same - a straight through, for hub to client. A cross-over cable takes 1&2 to 3 &6 on the opposite end and vice versa. This was for client to client or hub to hub connections before auto-sensing ports showed up to make the signals swap if needed automatically found in most equipment today. Some cables from OEMs have the correct physical size and pinouts, but only use the 2 signaling pairs. It is best to use these short distances and preferably away from rf noise like in modem to WAN port connections.

The twists per inch in the cable and interweave determines frequency response which defines CAT 3, CAT5, CAT5e and CAT6 level of Ethernet cables. CAT5 is fine else CAT5e/CAT6. CAT3 is generally considered now for telco use only, but can be pressed into into service short haul. (Won't get the 328 ft rated reliably above 10baseT speeds).

You may run across Ethernet with PoE this means on unused pairs a device like a video camera is fed power as well as data connectivity over its Ethernet connection. Follow directions to put power to the correct location as needed and look for any recommended grounding requirements, especially with antennas.

Prices vary widely depending upon bubble packaging and the store overhead generally $6-$12 for about 6 ft or 2 m.

If you want to make your own then RTFM and understand millage may vary until you get the right tools and parts and practice while adhering to standards. I find it more cost effective to use pre-made & tested cables except if failure at an end then I repair followed by testing to re-qualify the cable to not degrade its use.


OBTW - Generally the USB was for single computer use at lower speeds of earlier service speeds below 3-6 Mbps - usually don't.

Wanna connect mulitple computers to my Printer


Hi,
Yes, you can definitely share one printer to multiple computers. All you need to have is a ethernet hub or some call it network hub and Cat5 cable. Ethernet Hub is a simple, small and inexpensive gadget to connect multiple computers together.For the Cat5 cable is popularly known as LAN cable. For you to share your printer, connect it on a ethernet hub as well as your computers using a Cat5 cable. Once everything is connected to the Ethernet hub fix the network and that's it. Everyone that is on the network can use the printer.
I hope I answered your question.
Thanks a lot!

I am having problem with my network. I am wondering why the new cabling I made I having problem connecting to my assisting network. I use belden cat5e and did not even exceed 30 meters lenght. pls help..


Ethernet cables can be 100 meters in length. I would imagine you didn't punch the cable correct.
Make sure you have the wires in the correct order if they are not it wont work. Just stick to making straight through cables as most routers, switches and hubs are now smart enough to reverse logic if needed.
Here is wiring of A to A http://networkcable-tester.com/2011/05/23/cat-5-wiring-5/ You can also buy ethernet tester to see which pins are not connected correctly.
If your having trouble making cables I'd suggest just buying some from www.monoprice.com they only cost about $4 for 18' cables

HI, I have two 3com patch panels 3C17302 Superstack 3 Switch 4250T, connected to a switch panel. One of the patch panels does not work e.g. the connected pc's are not able to have Lan connection. Only...


I don't know anything about these units, nor do I have time to source any docs for you, but maybe you can try connecting a PC directly to the port your patch panel is connecting the the switch from, you can at least see if that port is working.
My next and only other suggestion is to invest in a "LAN cable tester". In my area, you can find cheap ones for U$20.
The tester will allow you to check connectivity between any two ports, and allows you to test both patch links and individual CAT5/6 cables.
Good luck!

Setup belkin wireless network


Hi,
1.Connect a Cat5 cable into the Ethernet port on the back of your cable or DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Connect to Modem Internet/WAN" port on the back of the Belkin Router.
2.Connect a Cat5 cable into the "Ethernet" port on the back of any desktop or stationary computers and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports on the back of the Belkin Router. Start with port one and work your way up with subsequent computer connections.
3.Turn the Belkin Router on by plugging the router into a power outlet. Allow 30 seconds for the router to fully boot up. All computers tethered to the modem via a Cat5 cable have access to the Internet.
4.Open the Wi-Fi Wizard on your laptop and turn on the Wi-Fi antenna. Once turned on, the Wizard finds all network connections in your area. Connect to your network to establish an Internet connection. Complete this step for each computer not tethered to the Belkin Router with a Cat5 cable.

Thanks for using Fixya

How do i hook up a router


Let's proceed first with the physical connectivity. Please follow the steps below:

1. Make sure that your computer is working when directly connected to the modem.

2. Connect the CAT5 cable of your modem to the WAN port of your GWA504.

3. You should have another CAT5 cable. That CAT5 cable will be connected to any one of the LAN ports on the back of that router.

4. Connect the other end of the CAT5 cable to the network card of your computer.

5. After the physical connection, just let me know and we will proceed with the next steps. Because your statement is very broad. We have to consider lots of things here. Please reply so that I could further assist you.

IBM ThinkPad T20


Wow, a lot of information but I'm unclear as to what you are trying to do.

Are you connecting the T20 directly to the T40 using a cat5 cable and then trying to access the internet on the T20 via the modem?

Connecting the two computer together using a normal cat5 will not work, you need to use a crossover cable otherwise you are connecting the send to the send and the receive to the receive.
You can also use a hub, a switch or a router if you have any of those on hand.

As for the modem, I suggest you unplug the telephone line from the modem and plug it into a phone and see if you can hear a dial tone. If you cannot hear a tone either the extension is bad (replace) or you outlet is defective. If you can hear a tone, the modem card may be defective.

Cable modems


I have heard of people doing it.
However, you will need to pay the cable company for an additional line / service, as the MAC address of the modem has to be registered with them in order for it to work.

Connection problem between modem router and hub


Sounds like you may need what is called a "Crossover Cable' connecting your router to your hub, or if either device has an uplink port, use it on one device to connect to normal port on other device. Here are instructions for making your own cables: http://www.lanshack.com/make-cat5E.aspx
