help with cat5e wire jack

help with cat5e wire jack

I am trying to wire some wall jacks I purchased from Amazon.


Here is a better image of it.

I have tried following the diagram on it and also many other examples online with no luck. Any suggestions on how to wire it?
For testing, I cut the end off a patch cat5e cable I had. So I know the male end is correct.

Cruising the feedback from your link, I noticed a review :

1.0 out of 5 stars The 568B wiring diagram on this product is wrong!
July 12, 2016
Verified Purchase
Wow -- just wow. The 568B wiring diagram on this product is wrong! If you follow the wiring diagram, you'll wire your jack wrong! Green should be blue and the blue is where the green should be. I haven't decided if I'm going to return the ones I haven't used yet, there is nothing functionally wrong here, but if you're not comfortable with this fluke, don't buy this.

First check the label on your jack to see if it was done wrong as the above review suggests.

RE: help with cat5e wire jack

To be sure, punch it down as indicated and wire map it with a tester. Take pics of how its punched down and the results of the tester as evidence that it's wrong, then fight tike H*%@! to get them replaced.

RE: help with cat5e wire jack

The colors by pin definition are correct. 568B is the most common, w/or,or,w/gn,bl,w/bl,gg,w/br,/b for pins one through eight.
