The "patch panels" why are the red cat5e cables running from one of the patch panels to the other? what is the point in doing that?


I was thinking the same? so the red cable go to all your rooms then wire to the top patch panel behind it? you could just plug the red cables into the switch.

Re: 500mb - Only getting 90mbs - Wired Connection

hmm... i think the grey/white cables come out of the back of the patch panel..... not sure which one.....but they are the ones that go to all our rooms I think. I can trace them into the cavities from the attic so it must be them.

as for the red and blue, i'm confused....the reds i think are just did but he didnt want to leave the patch panel on top with empty ports by the look of it.

Re: 500mb - Only getting 90mbs - Wired Connection

Must be a reason. Why 2 patch panels if only one is to the sockets? Was there 2 BB suppliers and a simple failover using two sets of patch leads? Personally I’d just replace the switch at this point. Detailed investigations can follow by using a cable tester for continuity between patch points and outlets 😊
