    thanks, it seems we have found the problem :banghead: i didnt even try to push the loadbars all the way in as it seemed unlikely that you could push them in. i have tried it today, i couldn't fit them in for like 10 minutes, then i have tried to push in the loadbar without the wires. it finally clicked in, but i cant load the wires anymore. i guess my connectors are just crappy, as those loadbars are pretty hard to push in

    Your crimper should push a bit of plastic on the end into the jacket of the cable which stops the cable from falling away.

    You should be able to look at the end of the crimped connector and verify that the pins are making contact. Better yet, get a cheap network cable tester and it will tell you if the job was done right every time.
