    568A and 568B wiring question

    I always use B unless matching existing. I will say that A makes it easier to use 2 phone lines or a 2 pair digital phone with 4 pair cable since the blue and orange pairs are in the same positions as USOC.

    Networking and wiring question

    The issue is not the plate, the issue is that it's using couplers, IE the wires coming out of the wall would have plugs crimped on, then plugged into the coupler. Get a 6 port plate and 6 punchdown jacks if you go that route.

    Acrobat Reader DC crashes when trying to print

    This turned out to be an issue with the Xerox network print driver. I uninstalled, installed as an IP printer using drivers from Xerox's site and everything works. Just an FYI in case someone else runs into this.
