The tip and ring wires (appearing as white and blue), should also be separated on the far end.
The white and blue are phone, the remaining are apparently Ethernet.
1000Base-T Ethernet only uses 4 wires. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabit_Ethernet#1000BASE-T
If they are not separated, you'll need to learn: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TIA/EIA-568
THEY ALSO CANNOT BE CONNECTED TO EACH OTHER WITHIN TWO DEGREES OF SEPARATION! ALL DEVICES ON YOUR PHYSICAL NETWORK MUST POSSESS UNIQUE MACs!
The way I'm reading it 1000Base-T require 4 pairs, not 4 wires. I should have been more specific, only one is ever connected to the network at a time, my bad. Is there any way to force a port into 100 Base-T mode?
I stand corrected, I misread and pasted in haste (knowing better ).
If the reaming pairs are correct, it should negotiate into 100....BUT it's miswired...
If you are certain this is why the LEDE link didn't come up...you could properly rewire the LEDE-end of the RJ-45 for 100Base-TX, only using those pairs.
