I purchased this CAT6A cable: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01M0VB4YD/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and did some network cables by myself in various lengths ranging from 1 metre up to 75 metres. I'm not testing these cables from my gigabit poe switch to the actual devices (ptz cameras) and on the switch itself, even though the devices are powered up and I can still a very clear feed, only the 100mbps led turns on - the 1000mbps led stays off.
I then tried the same test but using some CAT5e cable I have and the 1000mpbs turns on without any issues.
For the RJ45 terminators I used https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01K9Z4K7Y/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
In terms of testing, I only have a continuity tester and all cables done seem to have no problems with this.
I'm wondering what could possibly be the wrong thing I'm doing here. I highly doubt it's a cable issue so i'm throwing the blame either on my selection of connectors or the way i'm terminating these ends. Just in case, here's photos of this: https://i.stack.imgur.com/PxcVd.jpg
Any help would be greatly appreciated as i'm slowly running out of options. Thanks!
