Hi

I have recently had a small office built in my garage. I have 2 cat5e cables going from the house to the garage. I bought a flush mount panel and sockets from Jaycar, now I have no idea how to connect them. One socket is for a lan connection, the other a phone connection.

The socket connection photos are attached.

lan:

The lan socket almost makes sense as it has the colours on it, although I'm a little confused why pins 2 & 6 are both orange and green???

tel:

The tel socket is a bit of a mystery. I know that I need to connect the blue & blue/white wires, but no idea which pins to connect them to???

Cheers
Rayden

The phone jack simply require you to use the blue and white connections.

The data jack has colours for TIA 568A and TIA568B which are two different wiring standards. In your situation it doesn't really matter what one you use providing you stick to the same colours at each end.

Which blue & white connection? There are 2 of each colour.

Makes no difference, they will just be a 2nd pair if you're looping cables to another extension since you should ideally only be punching down 1 wire per connector.

Go with the 568A wiring, just because its the first one and sensible. If it makes sense then its easier to follow when something needs to be fixed later on.

568A should be used in NZ as it's the only one recognised in the AS/NZS standards.

It does make no difference though providing you know what standard you have used and keep it the same at both ends!

It is a little confusing on that faceplate but there are 2 Standards A or B which are represented on it.
I've never known why there is A or B types but as long as you use the same on both ends it should be ok (I've always used A because  as far as I know its the standard in NZ)

so looking at that.
A
1 Green/White
2 Green
3 Orange/White
4 Blue
5 Blue/White
6 Orange
7 Brown/White
8 Brown

B
1 Orange/White
2 Orange
3 Green/White
4 Blue
5 Blue/White
6 Green
7 Brown/White
8 Brown

Before I was paying attention I cabled everything up in the house as a crossover by using A jacks and a B patch panel. All still worked ok for 100M ethernet because of auto xover in everything, till I needed gigabit which didnt work.
