(Please excuse me if I use the improper terminology; I'm an amateur who knows enough to be dangerous, but not enough to really be useful)
I'm setting up a home network and am having issues with getting all of my wall plates to work. I have 6 throughout my house located in strategic places, but only one of them is working.
I've verified that it's a cable problem, because I can plug my laptop directly in to my switch and access the network, but if I go through the wall plate, I don't get any connection.
However, I'm reasonably confident that everything is wired correctly (568B), because I've used a tone generator on both ends of each wall plate cable and see the lights come on in the proper 1-8 sequence, with no skips, just like it does with the wall plate that does work.
I'm at a loss as to how I should diagnose the issue further. The wiring seems to be correct on all the wall plates, but only one is actually working. Where should I be looking next?
