How to Wire Your Own Cables

Industry Standard CAT-5 Pin-out
The images below depict the cable pin-outs for straight-through and cross-over Cat-5
Ethernet cables that conform to EIA/TIA industry standard for 568 A and B. IF the first and
second pin are orange, the cable is 568B. If the first and second pins are green, the cable is
568A. If one end of the cable is A and the other end is B then you now have a cross-over.

CAT-5 Straight-through Cable Pin Assignments

CAT-5 Cross-over Cable Pin Assignments

Symptoms associated with incorrect wiring include:

• No connectivity
• Radio not negotiating correctly
• Needing to be set to 10 Half Duplex (HDX) or 10 Full Duplex (FDX)
• Connectivity to the radio only at a very short distance

1. Use the programming cable (CBLDAT-1) supplied with your Access5800 or

Access5830 AP and TrangoLINK-10 to connect to the RJ11 port of the radio to the
serial port of the PC.
2. Run a terminal emulation program, such as HyperTerminal™
3. Set the communication parameters as shown in the following table:

Parameter Value
Baud Rate 9600
Data Bits 8
Stop Bits 1
Parity None
Flow Control none
MDI and MDI-X Devices
Media dependent interface (MDI) is the IEEE standard for the interface to
unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable.

In order for two devices to communicate, the transmitter of one device must
connect to the receiver of the other device. The connection is established through
a crossover function, which can be a crossover cable or a port that implements
the crossover function internally.

Ports that implement the crossover function internally are known as MDI-X
ports, where X refers to the crossover function.

Note: For the transmitter of one device to connect to the receiver of another device, the
total number of crossovers must always be an odd number.

The following sections describe the use of straight-through and crossover cables
for connecting MDI and MDI-X devices.

MDI-X to MDI Cable Connections

BayStack 350 switches use MDI-X ports that allow you to connect directly to
end stations without using crossover cables (Figure B-2).

MDI-X to MDI-X Cable Connections

If you are connecting the BayStack 350 switch to a device that also implements
MDI-X ports, use a crossover cable (Figure B-3).
