    Re: House Lan cables & Connections

    Lol, would have never thought to ask if the wires were all spliced together.

    There's something else you need to be aware of. It is not good enough to simply wire the ends pin to pin since two of the twisted pairs are split. It would still work, but not reliably due to heavy signal degradation and noise. Take a look at the color sequence of a purchased ethernet cable for reference. The color sequence should be as shown below. You'll often see the green and orange swapped - it really makes no difference, it's just color.

    Also if for some reason you need a cross-over cable (although it doesn't seem like it in this case), just swap 1&3 and 2&6 on one end.
