Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Skywalker Good after I broke the wiring code, Included here
This product was useless until I broke the wiring code. I have seen two other reviews and both had the same issue, probably returned it!! Any way, I hope this helps as I just wired my entire home using these, again, after breaking the wiring code as the product does not come with directions at all....
Orange stipe to Blue
Orange to Orange
Green stripe to Black
Blue to Red
Blue stripe to Green
Green to yellow
Brown stripe to brown
solid brown to white
Worked great after I figured that out!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by skohlmey Doesn't work with 'old work' boxes
Poor design. The dual ethernet wall plate can NOT be used with gang boxes (normal or low-voltage) designed for existing wall (i.e. old work). The connecting block on the back of the wall plate is too large to fit into anything other that certain boxes designed for new construction.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SynAck Horrible connection
The connection in these wall plates is horrible and led to physical connection issues (despite passing basic cable validation testing). Save yourself the headache and purchase a modular keystone jack and punch down tool.

I'm not hard to please. I just want an outlet to work, and it does. An added bonus would be ease of use, but this unit does nothing in that department. So, good enough.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Works as intended...
Product works as expected and installation was easy for someone with a high level of technical knowledge when it comes to wiring ethernet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by computerguy How To Wire
A wiring guide would be nice but I assume they don't have the wire colors on the jack the same as the Ethernet colors because you can wire this 2 ways.
Standard Ethernet wiring is:
Orange White, Orange, Green White, Blue, Blue White, Green, Brown White, Brown.
Hold the jack so that you are looking at the terminals with 3 on the left, 2 on top, and 3 on the right. Starting with the bottom left, connect the wires corresponding to the colors above, working your way up and around to the bottom right. When crimping your connector at the other end, hold the RJ45 so that the tab is facing away from you and the metal connectors are facing up. The left most wire should start with Orange White and continue to the right with the colors in order as above.
If your RJ45 is already crimped, hold the connector as above and look at the wires. If the left most wire is Orange White, then wire the jacks as described above. If the right most wire is Orange White, then wire the jacks the same way except start on the bottom right and work your way up and around to the bottom left.
