What about the PoE-switch I linked above? Will it work too?
I just added a third camera so I can confirm that this works if you have to connect three POE cameras off a single cable.Also ordered this 4-port-device from Aliexpress, gonna try it too.
I can't read German, but looking at the pictures, it looks like you have to plug in that switch. It would work if you are able to plug in that switch. Assuming that your NVR does not require a one port to one camera mapping.What about the PoE-switch I linked above? Will it work too?
Okay, I bought this one on Aliexpress, gonna see if it works. If not, I'll try your recommendation with the MMF/MFF-splitter.and no, that 4 port switch is powered by and re-distributes PoE.
this one: 4 Port IEEE802.3af PoE Extender for IP camera Extend 120m transmission distance | eBay
also avilabel on Ali express and Amazon...
How do I crimp them then?@manwald. Since you crimp your own cables, maybe you can make your own splitters if you have an RJ45 inline coupler. You just need one coupler. Split the cable near your NVR and crimp two RJ45 male ends (both will reach your NVR). On the camera side, do the same. One end should reach one camera. They other end needs to be coupled to reach the 2nd camera. You would be able to get it done ASAP instead of wait for Aliexpress delivery.
You want to use pins 1,2,3, and 6. This is twisted pair cable, so you want to keep your pairs together. Do this:How do I crimp them then?
I have 8 different cables inside my ethernet-cable, 4 pairs (brown, orange, blue, green with each a corresponding white).
Which cables should I connect to which part of my connector? I'm using these ones from METZ CONNECT (TIA-568A):

I'm not familiar with your connector so I can't really tell you what the pins are.Okay, thanks for your tips!
Could you just tell me which pins on my shown connectors are which?
And can I also use PoE that was with only 4 wires?
Will 100Mb be enough for a 2MP Dahua IPC-HDW5231R-Z?
@reflection I crimped all of my cables with the shown connectors, that has a color sheme on it showing the 4 pairs: blue/blue-withe, green/green-white, brown/brown-white and orange/orange-white. I used exactly this order on all cables in my house, and this is the only one that behaves this strange.
What do you mean with 'They should be 1-2, 3-6, 4-5, 7-8.'?
Is this something between TIA-568A or B?
I run and terminate my own cables and have never followed T568a or T568b. There are no issues with older Ethernet devices as long as you follow the guidance I mentioned (1-2, 3-6, 4-5, 7-8 matching on both ends). The issue is if someone uses a certain color scheme on one side, and another person uses a different scheme on the other end.The wiring scheme should be T568a termination for both ends of all cables with connectors. All government low voltage network wiring contractors, VOIP, Nocs, Telco's are all required to use T568a. T568b is not a backwards compatible wiring protocol. Therefore you could run into problems using an older switch, hub, hardware on newer hardware like ip cameras and nvr's.
