I was just making new short UTP cables, and I was happy that when I checked the cable through an Ethernet Cable Tester, all 8 wires were straight to each other and was perfect. When I plugged the UTP cable in the laptop, and plugged another end in the router, I was getting nothing, and then after some time, it started flashing. The lights stopped flashing, then started flashing, and then stopped, and it kept like that!
I am confused as to why is it doing so, after all, all 8 wires were straight connected to each other. It should work, but it's not working! Sometimes, it gets connected, but takes a lot of time, and the rest of the time, the lights flash, and then stop flashing (the lights in the ethernet port plug area)!
And it's a straight cable!
Can anyone help me out with this issue please?
