How do i connect my network sockets

Ighemuno
I have a problem connecting my network cable to the socket and at the other end of the plug. Please i need somebody to the colours of wire that goes into each holes of the socket, and colours that goes into each pin of the plugs. And also how to connect the cable that connects the system and the socket.
Thanks

Here's hoping that I'm not violating any copyright laws but you could take a look at these sites...

If you are talking about Ethernet, then you use what's called a punch-down tool to connect the individual wires to both the ethernet plug on the end of the cable as well as the ethernet jack in the wall. Often a package of ethernet jacks will come with a simple plastic punch-down tool, as it's similar to a small flat-blade screwdriver.

the most common pair-sequence for the wires is called EIA-568B, which is outlined in the following link:

hi

The wiring pairing and termination will depend on what type of therthernet wire you plan to make (theres Type A , type B and cross over and others as well,
for a basic straight thru (really all you have to do is ensure you do the same wiring pattern on both ends of the wire. heres some more info

to go off on a discussion about TCP/IP sockets and protocols, layers and the stack, but maybe we should give a noob a break...

And of course he could be using PowerLine networking, which would limit the colors to black, white, and green, here in the States, anyway....

Of course he has probably pried the door to the telco closet in his apartment building off, and has found an Ethernet switch....now he's trying to figure out how to connect his phone line to the switch with little more than TR to guide him.

And I resisted the temptation to advise him to weld, solder, or use large quantities of construction adhesive to connect the cable to the connector and/or socket.

GBIC/SFP/X2 ? Which standard 1000BaseSX, 1000BaseLX, 1000BaseTX ? Could also be DWDM of 10Gbps, 40Gbps or even 100Gbps

God I love the sound of Liebert's in the morning (through the earplugs).
