Cat5 Cable and not recognizing a hub
MSawyer Aug-23-00 03:06 PM
i have 7 allied telesyn lan edge at fasthubs and i purchased a 1000 ft roll of cat 5 cable, if i hook the old cat 5 cable to the hub it works fine but as soon as i hook the newer cable in it the systems cannot find the server at all i was wondering if there is a certain type of cable that must be used. it was my understanding that cat 5 cable was cat 5 cable short a couple exceptions ie... shielded and non-sheilded

And there is stranded and non-stranded. And you must use the appropriate CAT 5 RJ-45s for the kind of cable. See http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/cable/cable2.htm and http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/cable/cable7.htm for maximum cable lengths which are less than 1,000 feet. If you are within the maximum lengths, using the correct RJ-45s, and have a quality crimper, then the cable is probably not made properly. I would start by closely examining both ends and, if you canít see a defect, cut-off one of them and try again. Larry
