    Question Weird ethernet test result after new rj45 connector

    Hi I am replacing the rj45 connector on the end of a 100m ethernet cable. Every time I test the cable the tester gives a steady light number 1 and 5, and no other lights. I've even tried wiring into a socket and the same result. Any ideas / solutions welcomed! THANKYOU
