I've recently run a network cable in my house (but no cable service yet). One end of the table has the connector left intact, the other end's connector had to be removed the run the cable. I added a new punch-down connector that end.
Here's the problem: The connector is a CAT6A RJ45. The package gave me punch-downs for 568A and 568B. I'm not entirely sure of the difference, but I believe I used 568A on that connection. When I hooked a tester to the wire, my wire/light sequence was:
factory connector: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8
my connector: 3-6-1-4-5-2-7-8
Whenever I've tested connections elsewhere the wire-sequences match. I'm guessing that my cable is wrong and that I need to rewire the punch-down connector. Can someone confirm?
Also, if I need to fix this, which is wire-1, 2, 3, 4, etc. on the connector. See attached image for the wiring instructions. There is no wire-1 marked and I hate to experiment by re-punching multiple time.
