Have had a few problems with internet connection lately , dropouts & disconnections , Bought a new Fritz.Box to replace my getting old Billion 7402 VGP . Problems still persist , currently have a C10 Central Line Filter , with a short run of phone cable to wall plate currently separated into 2 x ethernet plugs on wall , one is for phone other for ADSL , I do run VOIP calls however do still also have a PSTN paid phone connection . I today ran a CAT6 cable in conduit from Central Line Filter down wall into where my computer / router is , later I will be running CAT6 to Lounge Room for TV , PS3 & HDD Recorder , Later still another 2 x CAT6 cables into Bedroom ( all separate runs are < 50 metres ) . I have purchased a Gigabit 8 port switch to make all these connections ( at a later date ) , for now I want to make sure that the connection from the Central Line Filter to 2 x Ethernet wall plates is correct . I have read that to get Gigabit speeds I need to keep double twisted pairs ( unsure ? ) . My question / help needed is what / which / how many wires do i hook up to have this connection correct & run at Gigabit speeds ? What colour wires to use on the CAT6 cable & where they get Krone'd into female wall plate connectors , keeping the same set up as I currently have , 1 Ethernet plug for Phone & 1 Ethernet plug for ADSL . The connectors I am using are Clipsal Actassi CAT6 RJ45 Jacks . I have tried to find this on many forums & searching on Google but cannot find the answers directly I am looking for . I live in South Australia and would appreciate any help that anyone can give so that this new connection will hopefully run at Gigabit speeds & resolve my disconnection / dropout problems . My brother works for the ISP I use & has done a line check on my number & has come back all good , I have replaced my Router , replaced new quality CAT6 patch cables so am guessing the connection from within my premises is the problem that needs to be fixed . Any help would be greatly appreciated !
The dropouts are the router not syncin to adsl , not wifi dropouts . Replacing the old crusty phone cable with new CAT6 , a few years ago I had trouble with noisy line on the phone & internet dropping out heaps , I had a cabler guy around & he checked continuity thorugh the line & said there was a problem , however there was still good pairs on same line , so he changed them over . He said possible cause was mice chewing cables or cable had been kinked on a sharp edge etc . Since living here I have never pulled / touch the cable , but now it is giving me grief again I am replacing with a new cable & placing it in 20 mm flexible conduit .
