You can avoid this cable thing altogether with a wireless adapter. For personal use I use wireless adapter to gonnect to the DSL modem, no cables or crimpers. However I also have the usual ethernet cable. This video es more suitable for people who are constantly installing cables for homes or business, the guy constantly cutting cables and crimping all day.
Should have pointed out that you should make sure(by looking through the end of the connector) that each wire is making a connection. At least I was taught that back in middle school, though that’s generally if you notice you aren’t able to connect to a network.
hey, thanks for the response I fixed the problem went back to the crimping tool to push the blades in a bit further as when I looked a little closer it seemed some had not pushed through the jacket and as to them not staying clicked in the Ethernet port the crimping tool flattened the clip on the top so had to pull that up a bit.
It is a big deal… you want as much blue as possible as the shielding locks the crimp to the shielding and helps prevent it from being detached. DO NOT CUT THE 8 WIRES UNTIL YOU HAVE THEM IN ORDER. When you untwist the 4 pairs bend the line back and forth several times and smoothen them out with your thumb and index finger. Before you cut the lines should be in order smooth side by side and ready to be inserted into the crimp end. If you want the line to last longer buy cable boots.
Hey did you push the cables in the head far enough before crimping? …and when you crimp the RJ45 head use enough pressure or the little blades wont go far down to allow it to clear certain ports. You may also have defective heads like I got once. Get some from Homedepot or Radio Shack.
I’ve run into a little issue if anyone could help that’ll be great. I made an Ethernet cable with a reel of cat5e, did exactly as done in this video to add the ends but now the rj45 ends will not clip into my ethernet port on my computer or router, but do on my cable tester and the cable passed the tester, nor is the cable deteced when put into the Ethernet ports if anyone knows why this is please let me know your’ll be a great help stuck with a rubbish WiFi dongle at the moment.
