Hey guys, Here's the situation. Today I switched from one room, to another in the house. The router & cable modem stay in my room. There is a patch cable, going from my room, to my old room. Then, that patch cable connects to a coupler, and then a black cable connects to the other end of the coupler and connects to the other computer in the kitchen. The problem comes in that her computer was constantly saying that it was connected to the internet, and then disconnected. Then, I went out and reversed the cables on the black wire, so that they match with the opposite wire... basically making the two wires opposite of each other so it should make a straight through... now it's just flat out saying she's got an unplugged ethernet cable. What can I do in order to make this work? Here is a cheapo diagram I made for someone else so you can see the situation. Think ya guys can help me? The blank area between the red cable and the blue cable is supposed to be the coupler. I don't know what the wiring scheme for going through a coupler is supposed to be, whether it's reversed or what... I don't even know if that's the problem. When her patch cable is connected to my router [before I switched the wiring scheme] the router showed it as an active connection.
