Network wiring

Specs: Windows XP
I want to go straight from an RJ45 wall jack - (568B) to an RJ45 Connector - (568B) with out a patch panel to a switch. It will not test properly with a tester, I'm getting a mis-wire indication. What do I need to do to correct the problem

Your question doesn't make any sense.

Perhaps this will help:

LOL

Jennifer, I think the OP is asking for a patch cable. You know, a cable that goes from the RJ-45 keystone outlet in the wall to the NIC.

JoeS - what's not testing correctly, your cable running through the wall or the patch cable you have?

Oh and just for the record, if your wall outlet is punched with the B standard, you can use a patch cable with either the A or B standard. Both will work just fine, you don't have to have the standards match.

Let me try again, I have 10 computers I want to network together. I am running wire from a RJ45 wall jack punched down as 568B straight to a 24port switch with RJ45 connectors pin as 568B (I don't have a patch panel available so I will not be using either a patch panel or patch cables). I will then connect the computers using patch cables to connect the computer from the ethernet card to the RJ45 wall connector. When this is all connected I should have all 10 computers on the network, seeing each other.
I am punching something down wrong becauce I'm getting a mis-wire indication on my tester. I test this by putting the end with the connector (which will go to the switch) into my tester and the other end, using a known good patch cable into the wall jack.

Ok, so far, so good!

Ok, what exactly is the tester telling you? The ones I use (we have two) show me which wires are crossed. Knowing this, I just have to isolate which RJ-45 plug is wired incorrectly by looking at it.

With whichever cable is testing bad, if you have a cheap tester that just has blinking lights (the next best thing to useless FYI) the only thing you can do is take a close look at the ends and see which is wired incorrectly and then redo that end.

The tester cannot test the wiring unless both ends of the wire, or at least the circuit are connected to the tester. It has to be a loop.

Cable from wall, end of wire at switch, unplugged from switch and plugged into the removable tester plug.

If you just plugged you cable into the tester, it won't test, there has to be a complete loop back to the tester.

We were the unwilling, led by the unqualified, to do the unnecessary, for the ungrateful.
