New Page - Connectors
« on: October 06, 2007, 11:04:55 PM »

Networking and Telephone Connectors

Bit of a minor one this...  but something thats been "in the background" for a while, but never got linked properly.

Was just really created when trying to help users identify the type of connector they needed for networking purposes. 
Thought it was about time I actually added it to the main menu.

You might like to correct the spelling of 'moulded' (it says 'molded' in two places). :o

lol thanks eric - changed

(curses speil-cheekers)

- the honest truth is that I had actually typed moulded but when I ran it through the dreamweaver spell checker  it changed it  to "molded"
...  so I then checked dictionary.com - molded
- damn americans -  I have enough problems as it is with words like center/centre :/

You're dead right about spellcheckers. I'm using Firefox here, and despite my system being carefully set up to use British dictionaries, FF still wants to change my spellings to American. ???

Actually, a proper point... dunno if this would clutter that page too much or whether it's irrelevant info or not... but as you know you can plug an RJ-11 plug into an RJ-45 socket.

It seems that ADSL faceplates actually have RJ-45 sockets on them for some reason - don't know why, but they do.

Might be worth mentioning, probably not.. just thought i'd point it out :)

Nice extra little addition to the site though :)

Hmm.. some do perhaps, but the ADSL Nation and Clarity faceplates I have here both have RJ-11 sockets.

Funny, I bought one from Clarity... and it has an RJ-45 socket on it... I know this because I have an RJ-45 plug on the end of my wire cuz it was easier to crimp!! (my crimping tool doesn't have an RJ-11 hole and so the router end was a bit of a botch job!!)

I think I may owe you a partial apology. On closer inspection, my Clarity faceplate does have an RJ-45 (they describe it on their site as RJ11/RJ45), but the ADSL Nation one is definitely RJ-11.

No worries... apology partially accepted ;)

I haven't seen the ADSL Nation ones... I know the original BT ones (which is essentially what Clarity sells) are RJ-45.

Your lucky, my dictionary in my brain has a lot of blank pages in it ( as I suffer from word blindness ).
I'm just hoping it is not going to affect my 14 year old daughters future like it did me, because I think she suffering from it as well.
With computers and the like in this modern age she has a lot of things to help her to overcome it.
Going on forums like this one has helped me a lot, as it took a lot of courage to make my first post.

Ah yes, it can be a wild place out there, particularly for people who have difficulties with words. It's not a subject I have any personal knowledge of, but I would imagine that your daughter could do a lot worse than participate in a few forums like this.
