    Is there such a thing as ethernet jacks with screw terminal connectors instead of punchdown? I'm having trouble getting my punchdown jacks to connect and I swear I've seen jacks with screw terminals, or did I imagine it? :worried:

    Unfortunately, a failed punchdown will leave you with a cable that has approximately the same performance as shouting across the parking lot.

    After much faffing about last night I discovered that my problem was due to one of the wires not having it's insulation cut properly when I punched it down. FINDING that problem required going up and down stairs more times that I care to contemplate.

    This is more what I was thinking, though I thought i had seen one that actually went into a keystone port.
