I have a cat6 wired home network and am facing some issues when terminating the cables on two cables so I can connect to my switch. I have crimped about 5 other cables but two remain elusive.
The cat6 sockets installed by the electrician should have been configured with T568B setup, like the others.
However when I connect a network tester (like this) the results are showing a wiring problem but I'm unsure how to resolve.
When I first connected the tester, the lights lit up as: 8, 7, 4, 3, 6, 5, 2, 1. I then discovered I had put the wires into the plug the wrong way around. So I re-crimped the cable.
However instead of lighting up 1-8 in sequence I am getting the following on two different cables: 1 (2 is not lit), 5, 6, 3, 4, 7, 8.
From what I can tell this means that there is a problem of cable 2 (orange) which may be not crimped properly (it worked before so isn't dead completely) and that the 5/6 and 3/4 are the wrong way around on the socket installed by the electrician. Given that it is the same in two rooms, it seems like an installation problem.
However the sockets in these two rooms are behind furniture so I would like to avoid moving it, opening the socket and re-wiring the socket.
So can I swap 5/6 and 3/4 in the plug to solve this problem? Anything else I should consider? I haven't been able to find much online about how to interpret the network tester results.
