I bought some CAT7 cable and combined it with CAT7 RJ45 plug connectors (used my tongs to build the cable).
But its speed running slow (10MBits only) and the non-managed Netgear Switch doesn’t has the 100 MBit LED running, instead the 10 MBit LED shows up only.
Cable seems fine and so the registered jacks, but I was not sure how to connect the cable guard to the RJ45 plugs.
Formation test seems to work, except the cable guard wasn’t found.
Has this some to do with the EIA/TIA 568B norms, or is that a result of NOT having the cable guard tie onto the RJ45 plugs ?
Maybe I just need a managed switch ?!
