I've lost count how many I pull a new run and it works. Going over the old cable we find a nail, staple, break or some other defect in the cable. One time the tech's crimp machine was a POC.
If you have trouble with CAT6 you should have same trouble with CAT5 but after so many calls, I doubt it's a CAT6 issue.
I'm at a loss for what is going on... I am hardwiring my basement for 9 ethernet drops and am having issues with 3 of the wires. I'm testing them with a Tempo Communications Coaxial and LAN Cable Tester (PA1594) and 2 of the 3 I'm using Legrand cat6 RJ45 WP3460WH Keystones at each end. I've wired them and tested and keep getting errors, but I know both ends are connected correctly as I've redone both sides several times very carefully, each time cutting more of the cat6 wire back.
Any ideas what could be causing this?? I'm going to use the female-to-female Legrand cat6 Keystones for the other problem wire which I plan on cutting off the plugs and re-wiring that one more time as well.
The other 6 that I have hooked up work just fine... They are a mix of female-to-female and the WP3460WH Keystones.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. It is holding me up from getting drywall up.
Thanks in advance,
