I have a Cat5e/phone wall face plate, the phone I can wire but the face plate has all solid color wire and the cat5 wire has 4 solid and 4 striped

RED
GREEN
BLUE
BROWN
WHITE
BLACK
YELLOW
ORANGE

So how would the cat5e wire connect top it. the directions said to just match colors

  1. I haven't taken the time to think about it, I just know from experience that simply matching colors doesn't work. Get a piece of paper and a diagram of a typical ethernet color chart. Assign the Red for instance to be the same as the Orange/White of a common ethernet cable. Then just take it from there. If you simply try matching the colors it causes some kind of parity issue. Perhaps someone who's put more thought into these things can explain why.

    Good luck!
  2. thanks, I decided to use a punch down jack instead. much simplier
  3. You'd want to use a punch down anyhow in this case to properly do it. Good job on doing it that way.
