Hey Everyone, i've got a really odd networking problem.
I purchased a new home with CAT5E installed throughout the house, and the keystone wall jacks were installed prior to moving in.
Here is my issue:
On two of my wall plates the maximum speed I can get between a gigabit switch and a gigabit ethernet ready laptop is 100Mb.
On one of my wall plates it only works with one of my switches (my D-Link router won't even connect), and connects at a mere 10MB. Every single device, switch, and router on my network is Gigabit at Cat5E, and I can't figure out why devices are connecting so much slower.
1.) I removed the wall plate and varified the wires were settled in the jack, the person who did it used A (not b for wiring on both ends).
2.) The cable is Cat5E
3.) I noticed that some of the strands that are exposed have some minor damage to the shielding. I would consider these cuts small, but perhaps worth mentioning.
Any ideas why my fully gigabit network would be having so much trouble with these wall jacks?
Thanks in advance for your time.
