I have been trying to create my own CAT6 cable lengths, but have been having problems with achieving a connection.
Every diagram that I have seen online doesn't match my wires exactly.
I have an orange, blue, green and brown solid wires. When you strip the protective sheathing off, each color is twisted with a solid white wire, not striped like every diagram shows and explains.
The outside of the sheath says CAT6 and I have been using CAT6 connector but every time I make a connector, I am not registering a connection once it is plugged in.
Someone mentioned that maybe I'm not crimping down hard enough, so I even went as far as to strip down the sheathing on each individual wire to help with connections and that didn't help.
I've made sure that, when I am inserting the wire, they are not crossing. The order in which I am inserting them into the connector is:
If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
