Wondering if anyone can shed some light on a issue I have. I have run a 30m ethernet run from my modem/router underneath the house down to the garage where I am currently setting up my office. I have checked and rechecked my connections even bridging out pairs at each end to make sure I get the same resistance at the other end. The wiring is the same at both ends and all the cables check out but when I attach a computer or router in the garage it doesn't work. Things I have noticed as I am using a old siemans speedstream modem/router is that if I plug the network cable straight out of the router to the garage the port led's blink slowly and together - I get no service at the other end. If I plug it through another router before sending it down the garage the leds blink correctly though the computer in the garage recognises it is connected to a network with limtied or no connectivity to the internet. If I plug the router in at the garage before the computer the router complains it gets no ip address. Do you think the issue is in the wiring or do I need to upgrade to a better router/hub/switch? Thanks in advance - Staffee - (running good quality cat 5e cable and using cat 6 plugs)
