comment Wiring my own RJ45 sockets - issues with a paticular outlet not negotiating at 1GB
dcdi.co.uk/product/302/network-cables/89/cat5e-stranded-utp/831/… is that not inivididual fine strands of wire twisted together? It's more flexible so they use this for patch cable. The cat5e cable with solid conductor i.e. solid core to electronics ppl. Am not correct? I used cat5e with solid cooper conductor for the the keystone jacks

comment Why doesn't my PC sync at gigabit ethernet speeds?
Actually I think the culprit might be a badly crimped RJ45. I have these connectors from maplin they have a cable guide with holes in it. For some reason everytime I try crimping the contacts slip and end up push away from the wire. So it looks like it's completely missed at least one of the 8 wires. what am I doing wrong? I must admit it's a cheapo crimper am using. I can't afford a proper professional one.

I have mine wired to the B standard i.e. w/orange,orange,whitegreen,blue, whiteblue, green, white brown, brown for the RJ45 plug. I'll check the socket now. It's labelled as to which pair goes where.

comment how does linux create it's device nodes in /dev
It turns out only selected device with google's vendor id and product number are capable of being recognised properly. You properly could get it working if you know the in and outs of the kernel. But I can't be bothered. Life too short for this.
