I do not do a lot of network cabling, can someone answer this question. An IT guy insisted that I must use all four pairs on every network connection but I understand that only 2 pairs are actually used 12,36. Usually Orange/White / Green/White. I have tired this and it does work I have heard that this is for 10/100 but on a Gigabit network yes all four pairs are used. Can someone clear this up for me? Thanks
