Hey this is an odd question it's driving me crazy. I am running internet up the hill to a cabin on my property. The setup is as follows... Modem > Router > cat5 to coupler to cat5 (this is what i'm connected on right now, and it works up to this point..) Now, I'm down at my house with the internet hardwired to my laptop. I have a cable run from where I sit, up through the forest, to the cabin. I have triple-checked the wire colors and re-crimped the ends 3 times each to be sure that's not the problem. When I unplug from this cable (only 3 ft) and plug in the cable to the cabin, then walk up and plug into the other end (302ft) at the cabin, the computer says "Network cable unplugged" (pause) "Identifying" (pause) "Network cable unplugged" (pause) "Identifying" etc etc.... it simply repeats the same message over and over. I have tried static IP - no luck I have tried DHCP (won't assign an IP to my computer) I have checked the cable for breaks, kinks, snags - there are none The computer shows no packets received in the status, only sent. Internet, network, nothing works.... plz help. i will try anything. as far as I know, I am well inside of the 328ft cat5 length (100m) limitation, and I have no interference whatsover... HALPS!
