|I am trying to connect a couple of PCs to a hub via a wall plate using a 568A style RJ45 connector, should I use straight trus from hub to wall mount and wall mount to PC |
Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 25 Jan 2004
You are correct. From a hub to a wall plate the wiring should be straight-through, meaning conductor #1 of the hub plug is connected to conductor #1 of the wall palte and so on. The only places for a cross-over is between two hubs (if no special switching uplink port provided) or between two PCs without hubs.
