All I'm trying to do is take a cable from my router and have it connect into a wall jack where I can then plug in ANOTHER cable from there and run it to my PC. It seems simple enough but I can't get it to work. I'm pretty sure the problem is in the wiring of the wall jack, even though that seems pretty straightforward as well. You just match the colors...durrrr. I can plug a cable straight into the same socket, run it directly to a pc and it works fine, so I don't know what the hell.

Anybody have any experience in doing this? Is there some kind of secret to getting these to work?

Wireless blows though. I've got enough radiation pulsating through my body.

It depends on the router (some need a crossover cable some don't) and the wiring of the wall jack, but there are really only 2 configurations for ethernet.

Green-GreenWhite-Orange-BlueWhite-Blue-OrangeWhite-Brown-BrownWhite

Orange-OrangeWhite-Green-BlueWhite-Blue-GreenWhite-Brown-BrownWhite

Basically it will either be the same set at both ends or one at one end one at the other, you'll need to trial and error to work out which one.

Why not put the PC into the router?

I don't get it.

Router is upstairs (going to one computer), another computer is downstairs. I guess I could just have cords dangling all over the place but I thought a wall jack would look a little nicer than a hole in the wall.

I should have known I'd never get a serious answer here.

That's my mistake I guess.

Tezmyster is correct. I just did what you're trying to do too -- screw wireless. My linksys router worked with:

Orange-OrangeWhite-Green-BlueWhite-Blue-GreenWhite-Brown-BrownWhite

Look carefully because I wired it Green - GreenWhite -Blue - BlueWhite the first time.

I still don't get it.

if you're going to put a jack in, just put a jack in that you can plug one of the computers into to and than have the jack go to the router.

PC1------------->jack------------------->router<-----------------PC2

Anybody have any experience in doing this? Is there some kind of secret to getting these to work?

I'm confuzzled. When you say same socket, do you mean the wall jack or the port on the router?

I've not wired ethernet jacks, but with serial sometimes you do not match colors/pins, you have to cross them like bama I think said. Have you Googled for a proper diagram?

Trust me, I'm confuzzlededed as well.

All I'm saying is that I can do this, like almost everybody does, and get a signal...

MODEM ----> ROUTER ------> PC

But if I try to do this I get nothing:

MODEM ----> ROUTER ------> Wall Jack ------> PC

Yes, it's obvious to find the problem, it isn't so obvious to fix it. That's why I'm here.

....ass.
