Once I tried to talk to someone over the phone, and could not figured
out why a plugged in CAT5 cable wouldn't work. After 20 minutes like
this, it ocurred to me some of those CAT5 tab can be bent or broken
easily, so I ask the guy, plug it in again and MAKE SURE it CLICKS.
What click he asks? I go, push all the way in until you feel it
Just a little amusing story.
