Upload to imgur and copy the link from there.
I’ve seen the picture from the email notification I received. From what I can see it’s wired incorrectly. They need chopping off and replacing with the wires in the order shown in the link I provided above.
Don’t use electricians for network wiring.
What he’s done will checkout with a basic network tester. It would probably also work with very short cables.
There should be a pair connected to the centre two pins. Then another pair split so that goes either side of centre. Finally one pair to each side.
Thanks Bremen, I will have a look at the weekend.
Will update this thread.
Are there any tools I should use?
To put plugs on you need a crimp tool.
Cool will purchase one this evening. Thanks once again.
green and blue are in the wrong place. it should be white/orange > orange > white/green > blue > white/blue > green > white/brown > brown
If you are going to crimp your own plugs on try and get the jacket under the cable clamp.
If it’s solid core cable you also have the option of putting faceplates on.
Not sure they are solid core. Is it easy to check?
It is if you chop the plugs off.
It’s probably written on the jacket as well.
Yeah cables definitely cabled wrong.
Pairs 1 and 3 aren't done right, as about a million people have said now.
Wired incorrectly and badly. Only met one electrician that terminates will. Tidied up after about twenty that didn't do a good job!
Just waiting on some crimpers and plugs to arrive then will work on correcting them. Probably early next week now, shall update the thread.
Your network tester, are you checking both ends? The remote end is the important one on cheap testers..
You want the tester to flash them in order 1-8.
A cable miswired as that one is will pass a basic continuity test as the correct pins are connected to each other.
The cable will fail because two of the pairs have been split.
@Bazzards You want to end up with something like this -
As @bremen1874 mentions, make sure you get the cable jacket under the clamp so the plug is securely attached to the cable.
Thanks Visibleman, that's what I will aim for.
