network Cables testing
Posted on 2004-09-20
I have installed a small network in my home by runnung the blue CAT5 Cable, I used wall mounted plugs on either end and then a patch cable to each computer, in a star network with a switch to link them all, all work but 1 cable, when I plug my Dick smith tester on it (it checks for continuinity only) all wires are connected when wire 1 is tested a light on the other end flashes same with line 2 through to 8, in order.
This one cable though flashs on the switch, and the computer does not pick it up, XP does not recognise a cable is plugged in
Anyone have any suggestions
