"Help me Techsupport, you're my only hope" cut patch/ethernet cable, tester says OK, no internet [pictures] Open | Networking
**Intro:** Before creating this support ticket, if I may call it that way, I had the scene from the Star Wars movie in my head, where Leia creat the hologram for Obi-Wan.This thread feels like my last hope indeed, because I created two diffirent threads in German communities, people had a few ideas, but nothing worked.
tl:dr; Added new end with a kit to a ethernet cable, the tester shows OK, but my PC has no internet, when using the new cable.
**Story:** Moved into a new appartment and after having a cable across the hallway for a few months, I decided to drill two holes, use the existing cable canals for power lines and guide my new cable through the walls to the PC.
Label on cable: Cat7 S/FTP 600 MHz Patch Kabel 4x2xAWG26-LSZH (20meters, 65 feet)
The first pictures show, why I had to do so and the second one has multiple pictures of the cable and the tester.The issue: The tester runs down from 1 to 8 on both ends, the ground doesn't blink, but my PC has no internet, the icon tray shows the globe instead of the internet icon.
- Do you have any idea what is going on? Is the tester wrong? Is it maybe software/setting based issue?
- Should I also redo the orginal end, which goes into the router?
- There is RJ45 T-568a and T-568b, I have b, because orange is pin1. Both ends of are T-568b,
- My end is missing the metal part, therefor the tester don't show ground BUT I think I can ignore that, because there are other cables without ground. Maybe the networkcard (mainboard) knows that I have Cat7 cable plugedin, it notices that ground is missing and therefor it doesn't work. Maybe all Cat7 cables must have ground?
**Thank you!** Thank you for your time reading, I hope you can help me out. Feel really sad, because I need a lot of motivation to do it and it seems very simple and now after that much work, the cable is not working.Do you need any more information?
I am confused about: The cable has 8 wires, which are in 4 pairs. Each pair is shielded through a foil. The green & white and blue & white made me some troubles, blue's white goes with green and same thing with the green pair. After I add et the new end of the cable, the tester showed me 1-2-5-4-3-6-7-8.
