I've bought 4 RJ45 jacks + wall plate from TradeMe, but there is no colour scheme associated. I'm using to RJ45 jacks with a colour scheme on the jack. This one only has numbers. According to the ad is a Belden jack.

 

I've Googled a lot, but can't find a colour scheme :( Hopefully one of you knows this? See photos, on the first photo there are numbers 1-8 for each connector.

Maybe I can just follow the scheme T-568B from here: http://www.cableorganizer.com/telecom-datacom/network-instructions.htm and follow the numbering? E.g. 1 goes to white/orange?

Nope you need to know the scheme for the jack. Normally jacks have this on a sticker on them, but these are a different design since they're 10GB jacks.

 

Are you using these for the 10Gbps capabilities? If so you'll need to ensure they're punched down correctly...Or did you just pay a lot for regular jacks to use with cat5/6?

I won't use it for 10GB. They were $12.50 for 4 jacks + wall plate... So not expensive :)

Does this look likely? From what I can see, I reckon it's right, but you'll have a better idea than us. By the look of it, the scheme is identical across all their keystones - odd that they don't have it labelled on them though.

 

Let us know!

Somebody's losing serious money there.. or they're stolen from somewhere!

 

I'm not sure of the current trade price on these but I'm pretty sure they're about $15 per keystone.

Sorry to bother you...
