Help! Modular Cat5 outlets
Can someone ou there please help .... 1 PC upstairs & 3 PC's downstairs, all
running WinXP (1 also Linux).
Have installed cabling between the floors and am trying to install Connectix
(made by Carling Systems) Cat5 modular wall outlets - 1 upstairs for PC's to
connect to & 1 downstairs to link to the Unex 5 Port hub.
However I cannot for the life of me fathom out exactly how the wiring
physically connects to the outlets.
I have absolutely no problem with the colour coding as to which wire goes
where - but how the *#~* do I attach the wires?
Do they need stripping, or does the metal blade-type things do that as you
pressure the slim-jacketed cables into them?
I have tried Maplins where I bought them from, who haven't a clue, and there
is no indication on the packaging (despite the fact that it says
Maybe someone out there somewhere has the answer - before I go wireless -
having already done the hard bit.
Cheers for any help,

And with time my ideals change
I want to spend all of my time
The way where it should be spent"
