    so my room is getting renovated, including all electricals so i thought why leave the CAT6 wire dangling.

    Me: imma route cables like a boss
    *goes and buys stuff*

    *examines*

    what did i get myself into this time. :banghead:



    so what i want to do is route the incoming cable from ISP which looks like this
    [​IMG]
    into the wall socket for the RJ45 (female)
    this to me is the confusing part. i do have a multimeter and i can figure it out on my own, but i want to do it the right way.

    btw i just figured out the color coding. is it as easy as that?
    or is there some witchcraft required?

    Yes the color coding is that easy. Probably.

    Can you please resize the images?

    check the image size, i think you will reconsider. images are compressed automatically by the phone.

    image sizes are 500kb, 325kb and 900kb.

    Looks like the ISP just took out the green and brown wires. You have white orange, orange, white blue and blue. Just color code to the punch down you have.

    Is the wall jack just going to run to another wall jack where you will connect to a router or something?
    If so, you can wire it straight and the patch cable(s) will take care of the 3 & 6 crossover.

    Oh ... then yes, it's that easy.
    Just remove the RJ45 plug from the wire and punch down the wires into 1,2,3 and 6 on the jack.
    Troubleshooting is easy. If it doesn't work, you did it wrong. :D

    Going for an advanced degree in hand tools? :laugh: J/K

    Network wiring isn't rocket surgery. The nice thing is that if you get it wrong, nothing blows up.
    When I worked for GE I had a bad day and wired about a dozen drops that connected to MRI systems wrong. They actually worked, but not well. I quietly fixed the problem when I realized what I had done and blamed it on excessive gamma radiation from a solar flare. :D

    I want fiber optic.

    I am seriously thinking about some new switches with fiber uplink ports, I'm sure I can figure out something to do with the bandwidth.
