Im trying to wire my house, and I'm confused on how to connect the cable to these wall inserts.

They are kind of color coded, but I don't which ones to plug the white's into.

    The whites will be whatever color striped, like in the article. It doesn't really matter what order the wires are in as long as you use the same sequence on each end, but in the wikipedia article the proper orders are shown.

    Your link helped me figure it out, this thing is numbered so I see which pins get the orange/white and green and the green/white and orange.


    Thanks.

    yours should be straight through or patch which is

    orange\white orange green\white blue blue\white green brown\white brown'

    unless you're wiring directly to a computer across the house

    In the words of the ancients, one should make his decision within the space of seven breaths. It is a matter of being determined and having the spirit to break through to the other side

    Dude, a patch cable would be the opposite of straight through...

    Edit: just for clarity, if you're wiring in the walls so that you have ethernet jacks like you have a phone and coaxial jack, then you want straight through. If you're trying to wire 2 devices together that aren't networking devices like switches, hubs, or routers then you want a patch cable.

    Edit x2, fuck me, jumped the gun. Its been a while since I talked network cables. Carry on, and disregard this post.

    Rollover is used for a variety of tasks, but in my experience it's mostly used when connecting a RS232 Serial port to a router/gateway/firewall/switch console port.

    doesn't hurt to leave slack in the wall/ceiling. You can coil up a few feet and if for whatever reason in the future if you or someone else needs to move the outlet to an adjacent wall it's doable without having to run a new entire cable.

    If you wire one end wrong or it doesn't punch down and make contact well you just snip the end and do it again, takes all of 2 minutes.

    I wired way too many school labs back in the day and will forever remember the: orange/white orange green/white blue blue/white green brown/white brown.
