GE Ethernet Wall Plate Wiring Diagram

Wiring a GE ethernet wall plate can be a very confusing and tedious task, but with the right directions and hints you will be able to install the network wall plates in a jiffy.  Before we start wiring the Cat5 network wall plates, let me tell you a story.  I recently installed a couple of GE ethernet wall plates with the coaxial connection for cable or satellite tv in my apartment, to bridge the gap between the walls between my two rooms.

After looking at the directions that GE provided to install the GE ethernet wall plate.  I realized that they were really confusing, uninformative and plainly just piss poor directions. So I decided to write this how to guide on install GE ethernet cable wall plate to make your job easier.  This should also work for other network wall plate brands, just make sure that you match up the correct cable color with the right pin number.

To begin the installation of the cat5 network wall plates, you will first need to strip off about 2 inches of the plastic shield to expose the eight color wires inside.  Next you will then need strip off about 3/8 to 1/2 inch of the dielectric material to expose the copper conductor.

Remember to only strip off enough of the dielectric material that you will need to work with because if you expose too much copper conductor this could create crosstalk in the cable.  After you have stripped the cat5 cable to the proper length, will then need to use the following chart to wire a straight-though cable connection to the GE ethernet and coaxial wall plate.
