We recommend using all 8 conductors in a CAT 5 wire as
For Ground = Use 4 conductors - One from each twisted
pair! - Use all the stripes.
For Data = Use 2 conductors
For 5V = Use 2 conductors
Just rewired the job today (yes on Sunday) and this worked perfectly.
Used all stripes for ground, Solid blue and solid green for 5v, and Solid Orange and solid brown for Data.
I think it has a lot to do with redundancy and isolating the ground, but regardless it colved the problem.
NO press and pray in this house!
