Morning all, currently doing extensive renovations and setting up a star configuration home network using a unifi poe switch as a hub.
Five points, three with a standard socket/wallplate, 2 with crimped RJ45 plugs to go into the back of unifi inwall APs.

Set up the switch and APs and are all good.

Initially the two crimped cables weren't working, one would provide power but no data, the other just had nothing. So I tested the APs on the sockets, two were good and one only provided power.

Got the electricians back to fix it, they went over everything and realised they'd messed some of it up. They redid it, tested it and said they were all up. Got home and plugged things in, the 3rd socket that had only provided power was now also working properly but the two crimped cables are still only providing power.

Electricians are going to look at it again but thought I'd try to get some insight in case we're missing something. Could there be a difference in the configuration between the sockets and the crimped plugs? Thought cable length might be an issue but none of them are particularly long and the socket that is now working is probably longer than one of the ones that isn't.

Any help would be much appreciated

Hey all,




Update on this, had a data specialist in to sort everything out. All the cables are now beautifully crimped and working perfectly. Network is now up and running as planned, thank you all for your help and input. 


Much happier chappy now :D
