I have tried many different combo's of ports and moving computers around, all with the same results. The wire is cat5, and from all the things I have tried it all points to the wire. Has anyone ever had a problem with the cable itself ?
I bought the cat5 cable from an electrical supply company and my brother crimped the connectors on the ends for me, he has done this many times at work and I don't think the connectors are the problem, but you never know. I was thinking about getting different wire and trying that. I is a pain to fish the wire through the house so I would like to be sure before I did that.
Thanks again.

Unless you can find somewhere to rent a cable tester or something then your gonna have to fish cables. It defintately sounds like the problem, unless the cable is being seriously compromised by some kind of electrical problem.

When you fish the cable with preferrably cat6 cables, use a steel pipe or something to that affect to shield the cables from interferences since you're going long distances for ethernet.
