I had my new house pre-wired with CAT5. I have been running my home pc wireless to date, but now the adapter has pooped out. I bought push down connectors and wired them according to the "A" standard (both ends the same), and connected it to the router. My pc tells me there is limited connectivity, and in the status, it shows bytes sent but none received. When i just connect it with a store-bought cable, it works great! Despite changing the connectors several times and moving the cat5 away from potential interference where i could, i cannot get it to function normal.
