Hi All,

So I just started cabling my new place (last weekend), using Cat5E Leviton jacks which had the T568B sticker, so that is what I followed..

From what I have now read, I should have gone with 568A.

Does it really matter? Should I move my desk out again and change the first 8 over?

Thanks heaps,

Brad

As long as you use the same at both ends there are no issues.

At lease you didn't do what I've encountered a few times lately and try and make your own T568C standard..

I've come across two instances lately of cabling that's been punched down to jacks and also just crimped to RJ45's using somebody's own standard. The key reason Ethernet works is because of the concept of a twisted pair - having the legs of the TX or RX pair on different pairs will cause issues which is exactly what was happening.
