Question about Leviton (102-5G108-RW5)

1 Answer

I've connected both ends of a Cat5e cable using the GigaMax 5e snap-in connectors. At each end, I used the T568B wiring standard. Then, I connected my computer to one end of my cable assembly via a 3 ft pre-assembled Cat5E cable. Then I connected the other end of my cable assembly to my modem via a 3 ft pre-assembled Cat5E cable. Result: No internet. I already eliminated the modem, and the two other Cat5e pre-assembled cable assemblies as possible problems, since I still have internet on my other two computers. On the cable assembly I am building, should I be using T568B wiring standard at both ends, or just one end ? Is there an easy test to check continuity?

It doesn't matter whether you use the 568A or 568B wiring as long as you use the same at both ends. (If you use A at one end and B at the other you wind up with a crossover cable, handy for some applications but not what you need.) The easiest way to check a cable is with a cable tester, and then all you need to do is look at LEDs to see any problems. You can also use an ohmmeter to check that each wire goes the right place, but it's more work.

When using insulation displacement connectors, be sure you're using a punch-down tool to seat the wires in the appropriate slots. You can use the plastic tool often supplied with these connectors, or you can get a better quality spring-loaded one at reasonable cost. Don't rely on the plastic "stuffer cap" since it sometimes doesn't push the wire down fully into the metal contacts. I often find a wire that looks seated, but isn't, is what is causing the trouble. Also, especially if the lighting's not good, it's easy to mix up wires. Punching to the 568A code at one end and B at the other is not a hard mistake to make.

When do I use T568A vs. T568B in Ethernet cabling


The only difference between both are just color codes. T568A is recognized by US government and T568B is old AT&T standard and you will find this standard in general everywhere. So as long you have both side same color code than no problem if you will mix T568A on one end and T568B on another it will become cross cable so don't forget to check both the end should have same standard.
Cheers!!

I have wired (2) cat5e connectors using 568B and still seem to be getting collisions and no connectivity. I have re-wired these several times making sure I am the same on both sides. Any ideas?


I would make sure you have the wires pushed all of the way to the end so that it's reaching the metal connector at the tip. Often times there is a wire or two not reaching the very tip and therefor is not fully connected.

Hello I need to hardwire a tripplite n001-010-bl catse cable to a belkin cat5e keystone jack bel-r6d024-ab5e I do not know the correct wiring configuration to do this. Please advise?


The wiring is done as if you are building your own CAT5e wire. See the following URL: http://www.beginnercode.com/2006/11/09/connecting-network-cable-ends/ . There are other sites. As long as both ends are the same the cable will work (unless you want a crossover connection).

For a PDF version see: http://www.n-tron.com/pdf/cat5ecableschemes.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(Keystone jacks for ethernet come in two types: plug in RJ-45 and punch down the individual wires with the tool. All of the punch down jacks came with a diagram, had the wire arrangement indicated on the unit, and a cheap plastic punch down tool.)

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.

Cat5e jack by leviton has eight slots, but my cat5 cable only has 4 wires in it. I punched the wires down on the back four connectors. As long as I do the same on my ends, this should work right? Please...


Cat5 has eight wires, anything less is for telephone. Your cabe is for telephone if it has 4 wires. Either return the cable and get 8-wire cat5 or go to another store for your cat5 wire.

Plz explain me exactly for which purpose RJ-45 cable used ?


RJ -45 is a type of connector used on cat5, cat5e....etc cables to connect networked devices...the RJ stands for registered jack but there is really not much you really need to know about it....a RJ 45 JACK is a little bigger than a telephone jack, you'll notice the female type of input on your computer or laptop and the male end will be on the end of the cable that goes into this jack....hope this helps

100 Ft. Cat 5e Cable damaged


I suggest soldering them, it is real easy and I could walk you through how but it would still work if you twist the together and elecrtical tape them off. Also were at on the cat 5 is it exsposed? If it is near the end you could just put a new plug on it.

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 :-)
