Is this possible?
I'm trying to wire two Ethernet jack ports into a trailer outback so two computers can plug into the wall at the same time. I have one long CAT6 cable with an rj45 connector on one end that is plugged into the router in the main house, and loose wires on the other end. I have two CAT6 punchdown keystone ports and I've wired one of the ports in with the two pairs: orange, w/orange & green, w/green. It works fine, the internet is connected and working on my computer. The second jack has not worked for me yet that needs to connect to the remaining blue, w/blue & brown, w/brown wires not worked for me yet. I've tried a few wiring schemes but I obviously am missing something.
Do I need to wire two jacks into the other side of this one cable and plug it into two ports in the router? Do I need a second cable when using CAT6 as opposed to CAT5 wiring? Is this even a possibility and is there a wiring scheme I just haven't tried yet for the blue/brown pairs?
Thanks in advance for the help, I'm trying my best two learn these things.
