    I made a lag switch with what I believe to be a Cat5 cable (doubt it's cat5e, it's pretty old). I tried using the solid orange wire (or at least what I though was the orange wire) and didn't work, it would just immediately disconnect me every time. I then went to try the solid green wire, and then found out I cut the brown wire, not the orange wire, but proceeded with the green anyway. Again it did the same thing, I tried using the switch, and the second I turn it on, I get disconnected. So then I go to use the sold orange wire, and once again, same thing happens, I flip it on, and it disconnects me from the PlayStation network. any help?

    P.S. I have it hooked up like this:
    Modem -> Linksys router -> lag switch -> PS3 and when I tried hooking it up Modem -> lag switch -> Linksys router -> ps3, even though the lag switch wasn't on (technically off), my router couldn't get an internet connection.

    I made a Lag Switch for my nephew to use on his XBOX360 and all it keeps doing is disconnecting/signing him out of XBOX Live. I have tried both methods (Cutting and Splicing the Orange Wire and Cutting and Splicing the Green Wire) multiple times and still does not work. I have even tried Manually configuring the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway ID and the DNS Server. But even when I did that, it still doesn't work for him. Some help or advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    I used the green wire. And it works perfect. As for your setup:

    Modem----[LagSwitch]--------Router------Ps3/Xbox360


    This is the only good setup that will work. You should try that one.
