Customer Reviews

2 Phone and Ethernet Wall Plate - White is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product is so-so I figured it out on how to as no instructions or details on the plate. Start with BLUE wire on plate and go clockwise 1-8 in the following order: Orange/white, Orange, Green/white, Blue, Blue/white, Green, Brown/white, Brown. Home Depot should know better than to sell "as seen on TV" items, almost took it back with ripped up packaging and all. Home Depot, try Made in America....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fairly cheap and no wiring diagram So network cable has 4 pairs of wires, 4 solid colors and then 4 with the same colors striped with white... You open up this CE Tech wall plate and look at the back of the Ethernet jack... red, orange, black, solid white, yellow, what?!?! And of course no diagram explaining how to translate to A or B networking standard.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reasonable Product Read the review of "gre1" of April 6th, 2014 and found that to be very helpful, but wanted to clarify a bit as well. Here's how I matched up the wire colors, and it worked: Plate Colors---------->Cable Colors Blue-------------------->Orange/White Orange---------------->Orange Black------------------->Green/White Red---------------------->Blue Green------------------->Blue/White Yellow------------------->Green Brown------------------->Brown/White White-------------------->Brown I've uploaded a photo (or tried, webpage seems stuck), and despite appearances, this is how it's wired. For the phone jack, I only used Red & Green, and they were properly coded. I did used the little cut-out to where the wire goes in, and I think it saved me from shearing them off. Bought a box to go into the wall (Carlon, Model # B114RB, Internet # 100404027,Store SKU # 202460, 1 Gang 14 cu in.) to which this attached (~$1), as it was made for a finished wall (vice new construction). Placed the face of the box against the wall, traced the outline, then used a utility knife to cut the drywall. Placed it to avoid studs and where the wires would reach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Works great and is easy to install and connect. Wiring diagrams provided for connection of CAT5. One drawback is that there are no wiring diagrams for the RJ11 connector with CAT5 wiring. Make sure you know which wires to use before connecting for phone line.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just What I Was Looking For I installed five of these plates in my home network and I have been very happy with them. I have not rated this product higher because of the quality issues mentioned below, but I like the simplicity and reliability of the screw-down terminals, especially for the four-conductor telephone cabling throughout my home. The labeling for phone and computer on the face plate is a nice touch and the plate color (white) matched my other plates. A few miscellaneous comments: As mentioned by other reviewers, this product comes with no instructions at all and the “color-coded terminals for simple wiring” used on the plate do not match standard CAT5 conductor colors. Without the wiring instructions posted by a previous reviewer or an Ethernet cable tester, this product is mostly useless. However, with the instructions, I had no problem connecting these plates to my network. I will post the instructions too, just in case. The screw terminal wells on the back of the plate have a small relief notch to accept the lead you are attaching. A little more patience and effort is required to use all of these notches but if they are not used the cable lead being attached can get pinched between the screw and the screw well and this can damage or cut your wire. Don’t ask me how I know this. Using the relief gaps also helps to arrange and spread your conductors in an orderly manner. Be sure to remove enough of the cable jacket to allow the conductors to be arranged accordingly. About one quarter of the jacks on the plates I purchased were very stiff (phone jacks and computer jacks). That is, they did not readily grab the plug and click in. At first I thought the jack was faulty, the fit felt very sloppy. An extra measure of force was required to initially seat the connection. After that, the plugs and jacks seamed to seat properly with a familiar click. Here are the wiring instructions from a previous reviewer. I printed the instructions, laminated them with clear tape and left them in the electrical box for the next smuck who comes along to work on the plate. Good luck! Wiring instructions: Start with the blue wire on the plate and go clockwise (1 – 8) in the following order: Orange/White, Orange, Green/White, Blue, Blue/White, Green, Brown/White, Brown.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Time Bought 2 of these and color code doesn't correspond to CAT 5/5E wire color code and still haven't found an example on-line of the correlation. Very irritating

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless Only compatible with Chinese ethernet not USA. Still haven't found the instructions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wiring is not correct to 568 cat5 standards The product does work well but you will have to spend some time moving the wires around to get it correct. Here is the correct wiring diagram for this product starting top left counterclockwise Brown White/Brown Green White/Blue Blue White/Green Orange White/Orange Product is always great put a wire diagram should be included if the wiring is not standard.
