How to hook up network wires. already wired
Nov 23, 2010, 2:10 PM
Hello all. i just moved into a new place and it is wired for ethernet. All the wires are unhooked in the panel.
when i look at the instructions it says to use standard color code and T568A wiring.
now on the block where i attach the wires it is different colors from the T568A diagram.
should i do the T568A diagram or follow the colors? if so can anyone tell me the order?
i have attached pics of the block and panel.
i can do the switch work once the wires are hooked up.
i have a ethernet tester to tone out the lines. i just need some help getting it hooked into the block correctly. any tips/help would be great.

punch down the wires by colour. Start with white/blue, blue, white/orange, orange, etc...
the rest of the wiring is done by the circuit board.

in the pic the board below is for the phone.
so i should follow the colors on the unit and not worry about what the T568A says?
