I have reported this issue to line 6, detailing them what the issue with the cable us and why they are not working. I even did a video explaining the issue. The original neutrik connectors have a special spacer inside to keep the rj45 connect straight, this was missing in the latest cables. They finally shipped me out a cable that was built properly. This is an assembly issue at some point, not sure who makes these cables for line 6. So call them and they will help you, I received great support. I also purchased my cable from Sweetwater.
