    Hi. Ive just bought some Cat5e faceplates for my home network install.
    And ive stumbled accross a little snag.
    When wiring them up it has two options to switch around with the wires.
    I can have option A which will wire up in this order.
    Green/White
    Green
    Orange/White
    Orange

    Or i can have option B with this order
    Orange/White
    Orange
    Green/White
    Green

    These are the left side of the module. The right side only let me do it in one order which is:
    Blue
    Blue/White
    Brown/White
    Brown

    Thanks
