Clarification on network connection
by ndbrown81 - 3/28/13 7:22 AM
I wired my house with cat6, terminated into keystone jacks & plugs, etc. I could only get one of the two downstairs outlets to connect to the internet but was only testing one outlet at a time (ie. patch cable to computer). I re-punched the other jack several times, tested the wires, etc. but could not get an internet connection on the 2nd jack (all cabling is connected via switch) Finally, I plugged in both jacks to computers and suddenly both jacks were working fine. Is there any explanation for this? I'm glad they're working, but cannot think of a reason why connecting both at the same time would suddenly make the "non-functional" jack work. THanks.
