| wall plate wiring for RJ45 jacks|
|<!=question>I need to connect my computer to a printer in the next room. I have cate5e wire and RJ45 jacks. If I use T568A wiring scheme should both jacks be wired the same? IE Pin #1 white/green and Pin #8 brown on both jacks. Thanks for your help. John Rule<!=question_end>|

I am not sure why you are using cat 5e cable for a printer unless it is net-workable and you are going to connect it via a hub. In any case cat 5e should be terminated using the same wiring scheme (T568A) at both ends. If a cross-over is needed, it should be done with a crossover patch cable.
