    I have a Zyxel modem and Linksys router. Modem and/or router are very picky what networkcable is used. Out of 5 cables, only the one which is 30ft long works OK. All other cables are much shorter and have a downloadspeed that's OK, but upload is nearly zero.
    So I pull my hair out...:wacko:

    Yes, they are all exactly like T568B. Checked them with a cable checker.:confused:

    so u tested the resistance on each cable?

    router firmware then.
    i had a linksys that would do similar.. was the auto sense 10/100 speed selection.

    driver also for lan card.
