      Cabling from NTE5 to extension sockets

      Re cabling from NTE5 to extension sockets.
      As this seems to be a crucial piece of the jigsaw, would the
      doubling up of wires between both sockets eg 2 wires on krone 2
      and 2 wires on krone 5 at both ends (obviously the same colours all the way through)make any difference to quality etc?

      Moved to Cabling and Faceplate Help

      The colours of the wires is irrelevant other than for ease of identification but you need to take care when putting two wires into each connector. IDC "punch down" connectors are designed to take a single unstripped wire by having two small blades which cut through the insulation when the wire is pushed in with the krone tool. You run the chance of problems if you try to put two wires into the same IDC connector unless it is designed for that purpose - which not all are. Just make sure you use a proper krone tool and not the end of a screwdriver.

      Or maybe I'm misunderstanding what you want to do?

      No no you've got the right idea, my query is will it improve things if done correctly?

      Hi Nevisguy.
      The colours which should be used are

      Blue with white rings to 2
      White with blue rings to 5

      If you are using the ring wire then this is Orange with white rings to 3
      Now as to your question. I think you mean is there any advantage to using two pairs ( say Blue and orange with white rings to 2 and White with blue and orange ring to 5 )
      The answer is NO. infact on long lines this leads to mismatch which results in worse performance.
