Rj45 cable

Q: Rj45 cable

My new Win10 laptop only has a Rj45 input. If I buy a Rj45 cable one end will probably fit into the Rj45 opening on the laptop but the other end will be too small to fit into the ethernet opening in the back of my modem/router. How would I get the Rj45 to fit my modem/router opening?
Is there some sort of an adapter that would allow the Rj45 cable to be plugged into the back of my modem/router with the larger opening?

In the last couple of days I can only connect to the internet if I hook up my router to the PC via a RJ45 cable.

Before this I would just turn th PC on and it would connect no problem. Now I get all lights on exccept the @ light. As soon as I connect the RJ45, it connects within seconds.

Basically, I'm trying to set up a link between my PC and Laptop so I can shift about 5GB worth of files from the PC to the Laptop using a crossover RJ45 cable. Plugged it in and set up the Networking Wizard (both computers run on Windows XP), on the Laptop, I can see that both computers show up in the same Workgroup but when I try to access the files on the PC icon, it won't let me access it, telling me that I don't have access to use the network resource etc etc... and the network path isn't found. Firewalls have been turned off and administrator status is on both computers.

I would be grateful if anyone could help me establish a network between these 2 computers as it shouldn't be difficult to do but I'm struggling!

A friend is installing some RJ45 (CAT6) for me. He said boots wouldn't hurt and that I could look for some.

I've seen some debate on types of boots. That's not what I am interested in here.
I've found a certain type of boot that I would like to identify.

I do NOT want: THESE
It seems as though the tab protectors could make things unwieldy.

Notebook: HP Pavilion zv5434rs PC series, refurbished
Operating software: XP, ? pro or home
Problem: Can't connect to Internet via broadband
RJ45 Adapter: Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC #2

I have always gotten the message "Network cable not connected" when I've tried to connect this notebook to my existing DSL connection, even when using the network cable that is now connecting my PC to the net to post this message (so, the cable works). I contacted HP's online chat service yesterday about it and received some good help. Unfortunately, it didn't work. One of the things they gave me was an updated driver for the Realtek adapter (above). If that didn't work I was to reset the TCP/IP settings by typing "etsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" in the open field. Before getting offline to try these things, I confirmed with the tech that I was connecting the notebook correctly by inserting the RJ45 plug in the above adapter and the RJ11adapter into the phone jack. He said yes, and I should also check the cable and adapter, too. Well, neither the driver nor the reset worked; I knew the cable was okay but I got new RJ45 and RJ11 plugs. Those did not work, either. While poking around, though, I've noticed in Device Manager that the adapter properties are not picking up the new driver. I installed it correctly last night, and this morning went in and redid it all manually; it all went well, and I rebooted, and the device propert... Read more

A:Getting notebook RJ45 adapter to recognize driver/cable

Just a follow-up, in case anyone else has the problem. Finally did get through to HP, and they had me download an updated BIOS and then reinstall the drivers with the Application Recovery Disk. It did not help. HP kind of ran out of ideas, and I decided to use the OS disk to repair the Windows XP that came on the system. Unfortunately, this is a refurbished notebook, and I assumed the seller (Radio Shack) had cleaned it up first. Apparently not; it asked for the administrative password before it would repair the OS. Of course, I didn't have it. The folks at Radio Shack couldn't help me, either.

So I bought a new Dell notebook. :-(

But I suspect, if the problem was the BIOS, that the OS probably got corrupted and likely repairing it, or at worst, reinstalling it would have solved the problem. If that didn't work, I was going to upgrade to XP Professional.

The data connections are the same on both.
The CAT 6 you want to buy has better conductors anyway,
as it is designed for higher frequencies.
You just don't have the outer shield web in the cable for it to clamp to.

As a habit I try to avoid stringing cable without RJ45 connectors already installed but I recently installed a 110 ft. Cat 5e cable that require manually connected (female) RJ45's at each end. When I tested the cable my tester blinked from 1-8 on one end and 8-1 on the other end. I used A type configuration on both ends. Any expertise appreciated...

A:RJ45 connectors

With the order of continuity being different on each end, it isn't possible you used the same order on both ends. The problem is going to be figuring out which end is wrong. Get out your magnifying glass a look closely.

My guess is that you flipped the RJ45 connector when inserting wires into one of the ends. All of the instructions I've seen tell me to hold the retainer clip downward then gives me the order in which to insert the wires, left to right. You probably did it holding the retainer clip down on one end and up on the other.

A:RJ45 Networking

What's the REAL way to network only two notebooks with an RJ45 crossover cable?Click to expand...

Connect one end of the cable to one notebook and the other end to the second notebook. Done; they are networked.

I assume that you really want to enable file and printer sharing; here is a "wizard" way ...

Run the Network Setup wizard (found in Control Panel of XP). Tell it each of your computers connects to the internet via "residential gateway" and that you want to enable file and printer sharing. Create a disk at the end only if you have a Windows PC other than XP or 2k Pro or newer.

Windows XP firewall (if SP2 or SP3) will be properly configured by the wizard (but make sure it is not set to “No Exceptions&#8221. You must uninstall or properly configure any 3rd party firewalls on each machine. Unique computer names and same workgroup, of course.

The Shared Documents folder is automatically shared. Any other folders (or drives) or printers you want to share, just right click on them and sharing ... . When sharing a printer, accept the offer to load other drivers if your other PCs have different Operating System(s).

When you first go into My Network Places there will be nothing there. The first time you click on 'View Workgroup computers' will probably result in great disappointment.

My wireless router is downstairs in our living room, next to a telephone socket where it is connected (I believe the telephone connection is RJ12?). The telephone line extends up to a bedroom upstairs (cabled outside the house), where a telephone socket is presented in the bedroom.

The wireless signal doesn't reach the upstairs bedroom, I have tried Ethernet over power but the performance is average, so I had an idea. Why don't I run an Ethernet cable alongside the telephone cable, outside the house, between the two rooms? It makes sense to me. So my question is, can I buy a faceplate with an RJ12 and RJ45 socket presented, both downstairs and upstairs?

It should be noted that the socket downstairs has a test socket behind the faceplate, I am not sure if this would cause a problem? I'd rather take this route than have to install a separate RJ45 socket in each room if at all possible.

I hope this makes sense and if so, is it possible?

Thanks for reading!
 

A:RJ12 and RJ45 faceplate?

You can buy standard sized electrical faceplates that have one to six rectangular cutouts in them in them. The cutouts can accept snap in clips from the same manufacturer as the faceplate that contain various types of sockets. These sockets typically include RJ45, RJ11, Coaxial F, RCA Phono jacks, Phone jacks and spring loaded wire clips. There are also blank filler clips in case you are not putting jacks into all of the cutouts right away.

I bought an RJ45 splitter from Cables To Go. I installed it on one of the out ports on a Linksys 4-port wireless router. I have all the other ports in use, and just wanted to hook in two computers that will never be in use at the same time. One of the out pots on the splitter works fine, the other will not allow a connection. I found a website that offers instructions for building a splitter and the wiring diagram from the website matches the diagram that appears on the back of the CtoG splitter. Also, a description of the use of the homemade splitter seems to be exactly what I am trying to do. I have considered two possibilities, one being that the CtoG splitter is just bad. I also got to thinking that the wired ports on the router may already be "split". Anyone have any suggestions?





 

A:Rj45 splitter problem?

hmm; you would be better off geting a cheap hub.

With the 'splitter' or a hub connected to a router, there's an issue that you may not be aware of - - IP address conflicts.

A major point of a router is to ensure each device gets a unique IP address assignment (using the DHCP feature). With a splitter (or hub), all connections see all the traffic so DHCP is ineffective. The only way to still use them is to have the connected devices
manually configured for all the TCP settings.

From my wireless connection I ppoe cable instead of phone cable, so the end is an RJ45 connector, my router input for wireless is RJ11, so if i convert that RJ45 to RJ11 and connect to the router.. that should be able to project the wireless connection right??

But I want to connect that network cable to a wireless router which has an input of RJ11 (PHONE JACK) input for internet. So i need I convertor to convert the RJ45 TO RJ11.

If I do that, the router will generate its own IP address and so there will be a conflict between both routers as both will try to generate an ip address, so if i put the second router which is a Thomson TG585 to have static ip address and convert the router to a repeater, it should be able to project that internet connection signal as wireless??

Who thinks thats possible??

About 60% of the time the system looses the IP configuration and I have to re-type the IP address. Also the system gets confused occasionally when I connecte/disconnect the adpater and tells me that my IP is already in use. I suspect this happens because the adapter is embedded in the system via software, not hardware. I really hope this is much, much better with the X1, as it comes with a designated connector for this... still, I need a dongle to connect an RJ45 cable which is a good source of error. Maybe someone who is actually using the OneLink+ to RJ45 adapter can give me a bit of insight, what happens in the system with this connector.Does the ethernet port actually disappear from the system, when there is no OneLink+ to RJ45 adapter connected? Do I need to re-configure the settings every time the adapter is plugged in?I think it would be great if the ethernet connection just sits there in the system and keeps it's configuration neatly, also if the RJ45 adapter is not connected. Can anyone explain ?Thank you...

i recently bought a new laptop (Compaq presarrio 500) with windows vista on it . I am having problems connecting to an external device called a DVR that records cameras .

i am connecting to it via rj45 connection, i can connect with it via another computer but when i try my lapttop it wont see it being there.I am not sure if its vista's setting causing the problem or the laptop but i do notice when i plug in the rj45 to the laptop and the device the little light on the socket desnt come on.

There isn't an overall problem with the network of the laptop as i am using it to connect onto the internet.

This problem is quiet inportant for me considering the only reason why i bought the laptop was for this application.

Any help would be greatly appreshated thanks.

You'll need to add a network card to the system -- if the model has a free PCIe slot,

If not, you'll need a USB to Ethernet adapter.

is there any more conectors othere than rj11 and rj45. becuz the kinds we bought fit really tightly into the slot. and the lil clip mechanism dose not even have to be pushed to take it out i can just pull it
 

A:is there any more conectors othere than rj11 and rj45

Yes, there are other kinds on RJ connectors other than RJ-11 and RJ-45.

A tight fit is not unknown. You didn't say the more important thing, does it work once the connector is pushed in, maybe with more force than normal?

If so, your problem is more than likely one of manufacturing tolerances more than the wrong connector. Connectors can be made just a wee bit over sized or undersized depending on the machine settings or dies that make them.

If it works, inspect the connector. If the amount of plastic seems a bit fat, you can trim it by laying a piece of fine sandpaper flat on the table. Rub the connector over it to remove a bit of the material, pulling usually works better than pushing. Normally you do this on the sides first. Be very careful not to position it to remove any of the metal of the wiring part. Usually you are trying to remove material on the outside surfaces, this will allow it to fit better.

Use care and short strokes and inspect after each stroke. Test the fit frequently. Don't have to remove much to improve the fit.
