Plug onto network cable

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
First of all I hope this is the right section for my problem.

Okay, I have to put a network cable through a very small hole, too small to put the cable with the plug through it.

Now I have no clue on how to connect the cable to the plug, I just know that you need some gripper or however it's called....

Could anyone please give a detailed guide on how to do that, I'm a total newbie to networking...

What kind of cable? CAT5, CAT6? There are different ways of wiring each as well....

It's called a Crimper.

Well, it is fairly straight forward. All the wires need to go into the plug in the correct order. You then use a crimping too to attach the new plug and there you go.

It's a Cat6. Thanks to everybody!

@DuckieHo: Well, Online Dictionairies...

EDIT: What's that twisting for, I don't really get it..

EDIT2: A Cat6 cable is downwards compatible to a non-gigabit router, right?

All cables should be compatible for every device.

Correct me if I am wrong. It is the hardware (not the cables) that are the deciding factor.

Gigabit just enables all pins to be used. 100 Megabit just enables 4 (two sending, two receiving).

You should be good at getting Gigabit speeds aslong as you segmented your network with a gigabit switch/router/hub/or other networking device.

If you need any help just ask. This is why I am taking a Cisco class. (BTW, it is an extremely hard class to pass)

The difference between CAT5 and CAT6 cables is simply the thickness of the wires used (thicker wires for better transfers).

The twisting of the pairs helps prevent cross talk on the cable. Crosstalk, (in simple terms) would be data on one of the 8 wires in the cable leaking its info onto one of the other 7 cables.

Yes, those both use RJ-45 connectors, so they can be used with 100mbps equipment.

I think they figured that out right away. As in, right after the figured they could use electricity to send a telegraph signal. I remember thinking that it had to be an accident that they figured that out, lol.
