RJ-45 Connector Suggestion

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,

So, I have a bunch of pre-made cables at work. A handful of them have broken connectors, so I figured I'd re-crimp them. I brought in my trusty crimper and bag of RJ-45 connectors only to find out that the wiring in these cat5e cables are too thick for my RJ-45 connectors. I'm a bit baffled. They're standard Cat5/5e connectors and work with all the other cables, except for these light-blue 5e cables. I didn't think there was a difference, but maybe I need to pick up some Cat6 connectors? Would cat6 connector allow for higher gauge wiring?

Thanks,
-Rob

Cat 6 is designed for slightly larger gauge cables, and should work iff guage is the reason that you're having trouble with these connectors.
