Boys I’m very proud of myself. My house had these telephone lines that I re-headed as ethernet. Works really well and now I don’t need to tear down any walls. It’s obviously vulnerable to interference but that apparently is not a problem because I’m using it right now.
>>2413118You put EJ45 jacks on a cat5 cable? Thats not exactly that hard.
>>2413118Partially pictured: I put up a piece of plywood and screwed some shelf rails to it. The shelves themselves are held on with 3M tape bc I didn’t have the right length of screws, but it seems okay. The modem, router, and switch are sitting here. I can’t wait for the Internet guy to see this setup tomorrow (upgrading my service).
>>2413120Yeah it wasn’t hard, the happiness comes primarily from not having to open walls and run new 6A.
>>2413118>telephone linesthat's cat5it's four twisted pairsit's basically made for ethernetand you don't pull the jacket back like thatit gets pinched by the clamp when you crimp it
>>2413132>you don't pull the jacket back like that>it gets pinched by the clamp when you crimp itI know thanks. The reason it’s pulled back so far is that I overestimated how much wire I needed to poke it through the head effectively. It was my first time trying this.
>>2413120that picture shows cat III cable.it will work but I doubt he is getting gigabit speeds.
>>2413118dont be a pussy op. post iperf/jperf test.
>>2413118those arn't fucking telephone lines you cuck
>>2413118imagine limiting your speeds and introducing interference because you're using old junk cable
I hate cables buried in walls. I always run new cables suspended from the ceiling with cup hooks
>>2413118>>2413122youre a retard if you think that you have to rip down walls to run a wire. also the sheathing is supposed to terminate in the connector.
>>2413456Pfft fuck that, across the floor and held down with gaffa tape is the only way. Yes it does fit under the door.
>>2413461>youre a retard>the sheathing is supposed to terminate in the connector.this
>>2413293if all 4 pairs are crimped and it's a short run you will get gigabit, done it hundreds of times>WISP guy
>>2413293>it will work but I doubt he is getting gigabit speeds.I'm getting 700Mb on speed test, although I haven't checked if it's the ISP or the cable
>>2413158>my first timewell congrats on popping your cherrytip for next time: you can pull that much backand it makes ordering and flattening the pairs easierbut you can trim away the untwisted wires to length and then seat the connector over the jacketso what if you lose a half inch of little wires?you'll make some idiot scrapper's day
when i bought my house, plan #1 was to run ethernet. I discovered that somebody had ran 2x cat5e ethernet from one of the bedrooms and did a half-assed job terminating it... leading all the way to the living room... just sitting behind the wall. i traced it using a line testing tool, cut out a square and put a faceplate.very thankful I didn't have to crawl to that part of the attic. got that shit terminated for my media pc and wife's xbox.
