I plugged in my notebook via cat5e patch cable to a terminated jack (we had some consultants do the runs), I get no signal not even an indication that it is connected but has no DHCP. I try another cable and it still fails. After about 5 minutes I try another cable and it finally works. I take the cable that was not working and try it and now it works? What is going on?
Network drops are as follows:
office rj45 jack>cable going to server room>patch panel>3 ft cat5e cable>network switches
