I have a linksys 4 port router and a dsl modem in my main computer room. The 3 computers in here are all connected to the router and work fine. I need to get a network connection to another part of the house. I bought a linksys switch an placed it in the garage were several of the cat5 cables that are unused meet. I want to connect my router to a wall plate and the other end directly to the switch in the garage. Then from the switch directly to the other room wall plate. I need to know what is the best connection set up at the wall plates and directly at the switch. Do I use standard A or B, and do I do any crossovering? What color code do I use at each of the 4 connections?

The wall plates should be color coded, just follow the color code, then tip the other end in the standard straight through patern (Orange/White, Orange, Green/White, Blue, Blue/White, Green, Brown/White, Brown). No need for a crossover, Modern switches and routers are autosensing.

Should look simular to this.

Just so you know here are the 2 standard wiring color codes:
T568A
Wire 1-White/Green
Wire 2-Green
Wire 3-White/Orange
Wire 4-Blue
Wire 5-White/Blue
Wire 6-Orange
Wire 7-White/Brown
Wire 8-Brown

T568B
Wire 1-White/Orange
Wire 2-Orange
Wire 3-White/Green
Wire 4-Blue
Wire 5-White/Blue
Wire 6-Green
Wire 7-White/Brown
Wire 8-Brown

Make sure both ends of termination use the same standard. Otherwise you are making a crossover connection.

I personally would recommend investing in a punchdown tool and punchdown style keystone jacks, from my experience, the tool free keystones do not work as well because the "punchdown" achieved by the dust cap clip isn't always 100% consistent across all wires
