| rj-45 jack installation|
|I am new to network cabling and am installing a system in our new offices. When checking the system, we found that pins 3 and 5 cross over in the jack. Is this correct or have we got some defective jacks. Also, What is the purpose of this if it is correct?|

If they are cross overed INSIDE the jack (before the part where they go in parallel), it's fine. It's a technique for compensating exessive cross-talk between pairs.
This is how I understood your question. Please send me more info if that's not what you were looking for.
