I have network jacks and phone jacks in my house. The phone and data are usually on the same cat5 cable. They used brown and green as the data and blue and sometimes orange as phone. Each cable connects to a 66 block in my garage. I have a dsl modem/router and a wireless switch with 4 ports.
I can connect the modem to the incoming coax cable in the garage and get a signal. I can then take a cat5 cable and connect the modem to the switch. I am then trying create a cat5 cable with a rj45 on one end, which I would connect to the switch, and bare wires on the other end, which I would connect to the 66 block. The only signal I get at the switch is from the modem. What am I doing wrong? I really don't have any extra length on the cables connecting the house to the 66 block so I can't really cut anything.
