So in my house I dropped lines to all the bedrooms, loft, living room, etc.. I dropped 6 lines from the patch panel up to the attic down walls to rooms all lines are less than 60ft. 4 of the 6 work. On all of the connections I did the exact same thing.I punch down on the patch panel on the other end I have a keystone jack, I use a tester to make sure everything is working, on the two that dont work, the tester flashes green on each number but no5. It skips No5. So what am I doing wrong for it to flash green on all numbers but one.
Please help not sure what I am doing wrong but this is driving me crazy. The two that dont work are both skipping No5. I double and triple check the patch panel and the keystone jack but I dont see whats wrong. I even changed the location on the patch panel and tried and new keystone jack, same results.
Everything was purchased at monoprice, the 300 ft of cable, patch panel, keystone jacks... I even bought another brand of keystone jack still doesnt work.
So, on one end of the cable, you twist pairs together, example: green and white-green On the other end of the cable, you use a volt meter continuity tester to verify that there is electrical connection looping back. You can also use a battery and a small lightbulb.
