Title: Replacing Cat cable to antenna
Post by: Itsbob on August 10, 2021, 11:29:48 PM
Hi all,
I'm relocating my antenna and abandoning my old antenna cable. 
I assume the RJ45 connectors get wired as a straight through t568b to t568b
or would they be t568b to t568a cross over? Does anyone know for sure?

Thank you

Hi
You are correct with your first option

RJ45 connectors get wired as a straight through t568b to t568b
Good luck getting it back online.

Hi Michael
Thanks for the conformation.  Turns out the replacement cable had a break in it and it wasn't till i replaced it with another one that things came back alive. There was a sharp kink in the cable around the middle of the span so i wasn't quite comfortable with it either. Waisted 5 rj45 connectors only to find out though.
Thanks for the the help just the same.
Bob
