Re: Transceiver problem

You don't mention what router you are trying to work with.

If you are using a router that uses an external transceiver for the Ethernet connection, then make sure the transceiver has the setting for "SQE" turned off (it's also called "heartbeat").

If your router does not use an external transceiver, then chances are your cable is bad (bad crimp, improper pair ordering, broken/crushed/stretched).

Try plugging in the other end into a different port or switch and see if the error changes or goes away: the problem can be on the other end.

Good Luck

Transceiver problem

Hi Scott,

I think the problem is the cable! The following pin-out is required:

                                        1 ----- 1

                                        2 ----- 2

                                        3 ----- 6

                                        4 ----- 5

                                        5 ----- 4

                                        6 ----- 3

                                        7 ----- 7

                                        8 ----- 8 

We used this and the fault has disappeared!!

Regards,
