Cat6 RJ45 connectors

Recommended Posts

Can anyone here suggest some decent Cat 6 RJ45 connectors? I bought some off amazon and they don't seem to have any guides for the cables, consequently I've crimped my first pair and none of the cables worked! :(

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong or not but I spoke to a couple of people and they said it is a lot easier with connectors that have guides.

The ones you've linked to are the ones I have. I'm not sure what you mean by internal guides, I do have the separate block for CAT 6 in there already.

 

Guess its just user error then :(

normally they have "channels" that the copper cables slide into, you need to double / triple check they are in correctly. i always do it from the non clip end because it is easier to see if the copper cables are in the correct "channels" also check the sides and make sure they are flush to the top. If they are not, when you crimp it a connector might not go through the wire and it wont work

 

hope this helps

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
