chevrolux: That is the wrong tool! You want a 110 tool.....



Also, did you test your cable tester with a patch cord to check for blown LEDs?

As for 568A vs 568B it is a preference, in NZ we use 568A.


I have two of those as well and had been trying to use them but there wasn't enough clearance in the keystone jacks I had to insert them fully. I'll give those a crack with the new Dynamix ones when they arrive. I did check the cable tester on a factory patch cord and it worked as intended, no blown LED's.

I did a bit of reading (mainly US based sites) and came to the conclusion that the B standard was the way to go, have to admit never actually looked for NZ specifically. Have noted that there are far more accessories for the A standard available in NZ than B.

Also, for flush plates for mounting keystones on the wall, look at www.electricaldirectltd.co.nz. They do PDL at trade prices.

An update on the wiring situation: the patch panel finally arrived today. I've now wired up all the keystone jacks (Dynamix using T568A) and the patch panel and all six lines happily pass on the network tester and in a real world test.

As I type the guys are finishing off the fibre install internally. All going to plan within an hour or so we should be running off fibre via the wired network (with wireless for phones and tablets).

A patch panel was defiantly the way to go (so much easier than wiring on RJ45 plugs). Once I got use to the punch down tool (using the one I originally mentioned) wiring up the keystone jacks was easy enough (if a little fiddly).

My next task is to install a phone jack in the network cupboard so that the router doesn't need to sit in the lounge next to the main phone (tomorrows task I think...)

Thanks for everyone's input!

Can you not just patch this through one of your newly installed RJ45s?
