Fixing a Cat 5e Wall outlet
Although I’m no professional when it comes to fixing wires or re-wiring as I would have preferred to have done today, I fixed my internet and now I’m able to access it where I wasn’t before. I had to buy a few tools, such as scissors, some tape and a few other things.
I really should have bought some glue.
However for some reason I didn’t think of that, so instead the wire inside the Cat 5e Wall outlet which broke inside, is connecting freely without any glue or tape wrapped around it. The two points of the wires are just touching, enabling myself to access the internet.
Here is my ‘progress’ so far:
If I had a soldering machine, this would be fixed within a second. Alas I do not have a soldering machine, and I tried other ways and methods however they produced 0 results.
For now, I’m not even going to touch what I’ve worked on, it is actually working perfectly for me now and I have no issues with it as of now! However if I brake it, or if the wires come off each other, then I’ll probably look into a more permanent solution and I’ll work on it more.
But damn, that was annoying. I’m actually quite proud I fixed this! Plus, the fact I noticed or found out what the issue was. Apparently I was tugging too much on the RJ45 wire, and somehow or the other it broke one of the wires inside.
I fixed it. I soldered the wires back together, then placed everything back inside the box compartment. I don’t live at place anymore, however the next person who does, and if he or she purchases an internet connection, they’ll have no problem with the wall port.
