Wondering if anyone knows off the top of their head about this. I’ve wired oodles of my own RJ-45 (male) cables, as well as keystone jacks (female) Cat5e|Cat6 over the years.
Today though I’m going to wire keystone jack on one end(A), and on the other end(B) a standard RJ-45 connector. (normally I would do keystone jacks on both ends, but in this rare circumstance I prefer the destination end having RJ-45 dangling ends, and of course in the rack keeping with keystone jacks for patch panel)
- End (A) - keystone jack:
- End (B) - RJ-45 connector:
The RJ-45 end uses TypeA wiring.
What I’m wondering is if since I’m mixing RJ-45 and keystone jack ends, if I should wire the keystone jack IN REVERSE or not.
(i’ve seen a handfull of other forum posts with similar confusion/questions)
