Maybe you put a RJ45 on the end of the wire but termination was more of a 10base2 (50 ohm system) idea.
Now that you have all this wired you have to figure out where the trouble is.
DO NOT MAKE YOUR OWN CABLES. I find most folk can't get the wire pairs right.
So does the Cat 5 cable from the BT HomeHub to the loft work when plugged into a laptop?
Hope one of you geniuses out there can help figure this out!
I have a BT HomeHub 4 on my ground floor.
I have a Cat 5 cable from the BT HomeHub to the loft.
In the loft I have a Netgear GS108 switch
I have Cat 5 (and Cat 6) cables running from the loft to various rooms where I would like internet connectivity, these are terminated with RJ-45.
I was expecting that I could plug in a PC into any of these RJ-45's and get connected but it doesn't work
Is that thinking above correct?
Is that GS108 switch capable of doing that job?
Thanks for your help and suggestions!
