    Hi,

    I'm new to this forum so very grateful for any help...

    I'm trying to wire up a Cat5e to Cat5e wall socket extension and I'm a little confused...

    I need to connect a machine in room A to a router in room B. Presently I have a very long Cat5e cable to do this. I've just run a length of Cable through the wall, with a view to terminating both ends with Cat 5e panels (to alleviate the need for a really long cable trailing across the floor).

    However, I'm unsure as to how I wire up the insides of the panels. Should I wire them up straight through or crossed-over?

    Thanks indeed for any help!

    Straight through. Plus you need to either wire it up under the 568A or 568B standard. Just pick one and wire up both ends the same way and you'll be fine.

    Yep, if you wire them all straight, you can make any adjustments with a crossover cable at one end, much less confusing. :)
