What's the proper wiring for a keystone jack

I have wired Ethernet 5e and put it from one room to another.  I have plugged in my computer (via a patch cable) to the wall mounted Keystone Jack in room 1, and in room two I connected the keystone jack (via a patch cable) to my wireless router's ethernet port.  The router (and computer) work fine over a wireless USB adapter, but although I get the two little computers down in the notification area / system tray that say I am connected, I can't access my network nor the internet. The DNS server and Default Gateway are blank in the Status dialog window of that connection.

Now I looked online to see if the problem is my wiring, but I see
http://www.9thtee.com/networkingts.htm
on this page one order for the wires going into a keystone jack, but my keystone jack shows a different order for the 'A' standard. My keystone jacks show
Green, Green-White, Orange-White, Blue-White, Blue, Orange,  Brown, Brown-White

which is right?

All three show what your link shows, which the only issue is 4 and 5, which should be blue and then blue-white.

as long as both keystone jack is the same wiring on both it shoudl work. there is a standard but only for the sake of someone else coming and working with your jacks.

But my Keystone Jacks being connected according to the Diagram on the jack, does that mean that the patch cables I use at the ends of the keystone jack have to be wired like the keystone jacks too? I currently am using the 768-B standard for my patch cables.

Do you mean 568-B?

IMHO: All connections should use the same wiring standards.   If you use 568-A wiring on the jacks, then you should use 568-A patch cables.  If you use 568-B wiring on the jacks, then you should use 568-B cables.

i agree standards are standards for a reason. if you are using 568-b on your jacks then ensure they are both b. your cables cab be a or b but must be the same at each end of the cable. For simplicity i too woud reccomend using all 568-B.

Okay, I just followed the diagram on the jack itself because it must be internally routed via some kind of chip.
All is good now, thanks.
