Re: Home network issues


[re: RLG] [link to this post]
 
Are you saying you've wired up all the sockets and then tested them with a cable tester and it shows the sockets are wired up correctly?

I take it you are aware that ethernet is point-to-point, at each end you have to have a device (like a PC or a router) or an ethernet switch? You can't split cables or share them?

All wired up correctly and have been tested, no sharing of cables.

I think the only reason it wouldn't work is if you've split the twisted pairs, so that one wire of the pair goes to the wrong place.

I use a cable tester like this http://www.screwfix.com/p/philex-network-cable-teste...

I have a cable tester and I've tested them all with no cores crossed over.

My problem is that when trying to connect to the internet via the ethernet ports, most of them are not working.
What do you mean by not working? Does the PC report it has a network connection?

No internet connection. Point to point test is fine.

To me, when you say "no Internet connection" that is not the same as "no network connection".

Does your PC report that it has a network connection but you just can't get the internet working?
