    I'm wiring up two ethernet sockets with great difficulty!

    With trial, error and persistence I now have all the lights except 5 and 6 lit up.

    However I'm not sure which colours they correspond to, if anyone has any advice on how I can narrow down the offending connections - then I can concentrate my effort on them.

    I guess I'll have to keep going back and forth between each socket and doing it too.


    o h i think i found what i'm looking for, striped blue and green.

    The numbers and colours still match - even if the layout wasn't the same.

    After several hours... i finally got it working.

    I had it working at one point and as i put the socket in the wall a cable broke.. a cable that was getting shorter and shorter.......
