ehternet wiring question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was wondering if would work to buy an premade ethernet cable and cut off on of the ends and replace it with a keystone jack.

 

I want to do this because I have only one or two spots that I want to plug the cable into the wall, and it would be wastful to buy in bulk for about 30 ft of cable.

Should work just fine :)

Putting the 'heads' on the ends is a bit difficult though

Rule 51. No matter what it is, it is somebody's fetish. No exceptions.


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

I do that sort of stuff for my job (Network Consultant/Engineer) so no... not at all :)

Most of the premade cables I have found dont use t568 wiring at all. It's always something really weird.

I guess you can, but I would not :)

 

Stranded wires are the normal ones for premade ethernet, as they are more flexible :)
Solid wires are best for permanent installs

 

I dont know if it really matters much in the real world, but that is at least the theory behind it - i have never used stranded wires for permanent or outdoor installs :)
