A UTP cable have 8 wires. As straight through cable have only 4 functional wires as 1 2 3 6 . Can i use remaining 4 wires with straight through wire config to connect another device? i.e: one end of utp cable is connected to router ethernet interface and other end with 2 ip phones or 2 switches using one straight through wire ? Is it possible to do so? I think no.but want you guys expert opinion. Thank you
You'd have to make sure your pinouts were correct and that you're not using poe because I believe it uses another pair of unused wire. Also, you'll never get Gb speeds out of it because you need all 4 pair for gb ethernet.
That being said, your standard straight though is:
ow o gw b bw g brW br
On one connection, you could use:
1 2 3 6
ow o gw g
The other connection would be
4 5 7 8
b bw brW br
I must say that you will more than like experience crosstalk, corrupted data, and generally any other anomalies that would occur with a bad cable. Although, it may work flawlessly as I've never done this.
Hmmmm ok, so how can do it ? Can you please explain. For one connector i will use 1 2 3 and 6th wire, and for other connector 4 5 7 and 8th? If so then on the other end of cable all eight wires are together in a RJ45 connector which is connected to router's ethernet interface. What do you think that it works? I did in the same way but it wasn't working.May be i did something wrong to make cable. But if it is possible then please expalin how?
