Network switch and wall plate


Novice Member
Hi all....quick question. Can I plug an Ethernet cable from the back of a switch and then wire this to a wall plate to create a network socket?

As long as you wire the RJ45 plug and wall sockets correctly then it will work fine (or use wall sockets at each end to make the wiring terminations a bit easier). Use the TIA 568 B scheme and a basic punch-down tool and you are good to go. Add a crimp tool if you want to use the RJ45 plugs to run the cable straight into a switch.
