I went to bestbuy, picked up a cat5e cable and a female to female connector. cable wont plug into radio, mic wont plug into connector. this was the only connector they had , in stock or on the computer. which cable did any of you folks use and which female to female connector did you use? at 18.99 per cable and 8.99 per connector I would like to get my next visit right. thanks
Something is amiss. The radio uses standard RJ45 connectors both on the microphone and the head unit. I know because I have about 1,000 RJ45 connectors here that I use for making my own network cables up and it was those I used to make my own cable.
The connectors are a few cents and cables with connectors on the end a few dollars, $8.99 for a single connector is twice what I'd expect to pay for a pre-made cable and coupler combined . All you need is a bog standard PC network cable and one of these :http://www.amazon.com/QVS-CC936-RJ45-Female-Coupler/dp/B00007E86X
