RJ45 Crimp Connectors

Q: RJ45 Crimp Connectors

Is there really much difference in the ones for solid or stranded wire?

I have always used the same ones for either wire and never really noticed if they were for stranded or solid wire.

So, if I were to get the ones for standed wire, would it be terribly wrong to use them for solid wire too?

Hey Guys,

I need to get a crimp tool to make a few ethernet wires. I have been looking at the prices on those things and they are extremely high (upwards of $50!).

I just need something to get the job done and that will work fine? Do you have to go with an expensive crimp tool to get good results, or can you go with a generic brand?

Where should I look to buy them? Which have you used/liked?

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.

I'm currently in the process of creating a 15-17m long cat5 ethernet connection between two 10/100 hubs. Only problem is, after connecting both ends with the RJ45 connectors and plugging one end into the uplink port and the other into the other hubs standard port I am getting constant collisions. My HUBS manual refers that this is due to faulty wiring however I've checked both ends of wire with the ethernet tester which has verified that all 8 pins are connected with no non-parralell wires! Could another problem have caused this, I've heard that pushing the wires to far into the connector can cause problems and by the looks of it I have......
 

A:Help me Crimp my Wires!!

Normally to connect 2 network devices, you'll need to use a crossover cable. Some network devices have uplink ports that contain an internal crossover allowing a standard patch cable to work. You may want to try creating a crossover cable and see if that solves your issue.

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.

Therefore I have a ppoe network cable that comes out which I connect to my computer as a RJ45
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??

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.

I'm looking into buying the new Carbon X1 2017 as soon as it comes out. I tend to need an ethernet connection often and want handling with ethernet cables as effortless as possible .   On my current laptop (Dell XPS 15, Win10Pro64) I use an ethernet-USB3 adapter. Honestly, these adapters are crap and constantly annoy me. Mine seems to re-install it's driver (or at least somehow initiate thru the system) every time I plug the adapter in. 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...

Howdy Gents,
This could very well be a dumb question, but I'm an ignoramus when it comes to coaxial cabling. So, here goes:

I have a cable ISP. The data cable comes up through the basement into the cable modem upstairs in the family room, which is connected to a wireless router.

We recently finished the basement, and as I described in another thread, I want to wire a network switch down there. (I want to set up a small wired techbench without creating a subnet.)

So here's the plan:
Replace the existing cable walljack with an RJ45/CATV walljack like one of these. Then, run a cat5e from the router to the walljack down into the basement and into the switch.

Now, question:
Does it matter whether the jack specifies that it's for CATV (cable tv?) Or is all coaxial just coaxial?

That walljack should be fine. If you have a choice of quality, go for the "gold" standard as you want to reduce signal loss as much as possible.

WiFi is fine, but by no means as good as wired. Are Acer providing replacements free of charge for these failed adapters. To be honest its a really very poor design - there is too much weight onthe cable and I suspect that this has caused the internal widers to break. This shoudl have been a rigid piece of kit and not as it is designed.Not at all happy with this feature on the laptop.Any thoughts/advice before I go direct to Acer on this issue?CheersPer

Honestly? i would contact Acer support service, 2 adapters broken is not a standard behaviour.

Hi All,

Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as obtaining a replacement RJ45 port housing as the present one has broken retainers.

Many thanks,

Craig

As far as I know RJ45 port is soldered on the mainboard. So you must disassemble whole notebook, remove the port, find new one and solder it on the right place.
Do you want to do this alone? I mean do you have experience with this stuff?

HI; Looking at the specs page links below, there is no mention of an ethernet port. https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-envy-15-as000-notebook-pc-touch/10862137/model/12206205/docu... http://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/GetPDF.aspx/c05176355.pdf However, looking at the service manual, chapter 1, page 2, the service manual shows there is a 10/100 ethernet connection. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05128309 The driver page has ethernet drivers... https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-envy-15-as000-notebook-pc-touch/10862137/model/1... The user guide, chapter 2, page 7 shows the ethernet port is on the left side of the PC. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05125670
