Don’t you just love working on someone else’s Structured Cabling installation….not!. An existing customer asked if we could connect some CAT5 outlets up as they have moved into a different office (same building) but their IT guy couldn’t get a connection to the internet for them although he had plugged up the outlets correctly

On arrival I could see these two outlets, 21/22 were plugged up in the communications room correctly but nothing worked.

Being an engineer I always have my fitting kit in the boot, on plugging in a tone set I discovered these are not 21/22 but 11/12 so there you go, another good outcome for the customer and as they made nice tea no bill either …..I’ll get them next time !
