Hi Fellas

need some help punching in t he wires to a network socket.
I am using the cat5 cable to pipe round audio visual signals aroun the house.
The cable comes twisted and i was wondering if i need to untwistr them for the socket???
It has an "A" and a "B" configuration on the socket on one side it looks like this

1. A green/white B orange /white
2. A green B orange
5. A blue/white B blue/white
4. A Blue B blue

And on the other side

6. A orange B green
3. A orange/white B green/white
8. A brown B brown
7. A brown/white B brown/white

Now obviously this is more sockets than can be filled with 4 twisted pairs....Do I untwist them?
Any help appreiated.

Wow. That is a brilliant website. Many thanks indeed.
Just a little note
I will have to run about 10 meters of cable ouside of the house and pinned agaist the wall....
Does this really create a problem with lightning etc??

Jeez I hope not, as that is how part of mine is done! :D

I guess in extreme cicumstances it could be, if you are going to place it at a very high point on your house it could be a possible path to ground for lightning, but with trees, other TV aerials around I would think it's highly unlikely.

Good luck! Making holes inside the house seems fine, but as soon as I start making holes outside to inside my bottle rather goes too!

I have aerial, network uplink (hub to hub) and sat cable all running around and into the house. I was worried, but after all neatly done in appropriately coloured cables, trunking, pins etc it all looks very neat.

Remember to put in drip loops where necessary, fill any holes with sealer and cover with cable entry covers, and I'm sure you'll be very happy with the result.

The only problem with CAT5 outside is that it's not designed for it so over the years it may deteriorate. Not sure how long that would take but a long time. Also, running betwwen two buildings with seperate earths is against building regs (found out to my cost).

Anyway, I've done it before with no probs so go for it. Make sure to gun some silicone in the hole to seal it up or water will find it's way in.
