Hi I bought some tools to wire a Cat6 cable between my Fibre ONT to a wall outlet.

I'm confused because every site tells you a different colour order.
But the important thing is to match the order of both ends ...

But the wall jack has weird numbering 


Let's say I ignore the numbers, and put the wires in this order at the wall outlet, what is the order at the RJ45 end?
PS what home tool can i use to punch into this jack?

wire them for T-568A at both ends

those colours are correct for the pins numbers. don't worry about what other sites say as the layouts (how they're wired internally) vary.

what brand is that, btw?

buy yourself a proper punch down tool with cutting function and network tester.  both are very cheap.  using the wrong tool to force the wires into that is likely to result in the pins being spread too much, leaving you with dodgy connections.

Sorry but no 'home' tool is used for these jacks - you need an AT&T 110 punch down tool ( note NOT a Krone punch down tool as used in BT jkpts)

 

 

The jack you have can be wire either from the outside -> in or from the inside -> out, the 110 tool can be used on this jack either way around

Use T-568A for NZ domestic use - The Pin numbering is for a RJ45 Plug

Thanks for the advice on the numbering ... more questions sorry

1. I'm so near yet so far!! Interweb suggests I can use a skinny flat screwdriver ... that's all i got!
2. I bought some real cheap RJ45 heads from Aliexpress ... hopefully that will work ... but ... so near yet so far still!

So buy the proper tool or write all the outlets you use a screwdriver on off. It doesnt work long term reliably.

All I have got have been fine. Except for one lot of coloured ones where the plastic was too brittle and the retaining tab just snapped off.

Did you buy the correct one? 110 and Krone are not compatible.

Thanks ... luckily it was a basic 110.

EVEN more luckily it turns out my crimping kit (cheap crimper and a basic stripper) has a 110 punch tool function on the stripper!

Glad to report that my UFB router is where it needs to be!

Always put the wire wire from inside -> out — its not a telephone jack! Don't follow the numbering, just follow the colour markings and note which way around the orange and green are for the "A" version of wiring. Keep the amount of untwisted wire as short as possible and ensure its fully punched into the slot. One cable per outlet and each cable goes directly back to the central convergence point; theres no daisychain like we used to do with phone wiring.

Have you got a cable tester? You can get ones like this:


Off TradeMe for about five bucks. They're basic, but at least they'll confirm that all your wires are connected and in the correct order.

I can see, so I don't need a cable tester.
Anyway, I've done it, happy days gigatown! Although there isn't much content that can/need to be downloaded at 100MBps
