<strong>Bad cable termination</strong>
Network cables are terminated at a data jack. Says Dani: &#8220;All of the pairs here are untwisted, and all of this cable is exposed from its sheath. It&#8217;s a terrible termination. If you were to test this you&#8217;d probably get a fail. You should bring your sheath right up to the jack and you should keep it twisted right up until the point at which it&#8217;s punched down. The more crosstalk you have, the worse the integrity of your data link.&#8221;
