TrendNet 8-wire Ethernet Pinout

July 27, 2021 Leave a comment

An outdoor TV-IP314PI of ours left the network after about a year of direct weather exposure. Turns out the camera’s keystone jack pins had corroded due to my poor weatherproofing of them. In cutting off the end it was clear this wasn’t traditional ethernet 8-wire coloring (4 solid, 4 banded) but instead had 8 solid colors: white, brown, blue, gray, purple, green, yellow, and orange.

white (pin 8), brown, blue, gray, purple, green, yellow, and orange (pin 1).

Cutting into its inline keystone jack (not pictured) we see the ethernet pinout is as follows:

  • 1 Orange
  • 2 yellow
  • 3 green
  • 4 purple
  • 5 gray
  • 6 blue
  • 7 brown
  • 8 white

This translates into the following T-568B punch-down arrangement with a replacement keystone jack (listed starting from top-right and going clockwise):

  • 8 White
  • 7 Brown
  • 4 Blue
  • 5 Green
  • 3 Gray
  • 6 Purple
  • 1 Orange
  • 2 Yellow
Using RJ45 T-568B punchdown with Monoprice 5384 keystone jacks.
It worked, camera is back on network!
