Using Cat6 Keystone on cat5E is fine, in fact Cat6 Connectors inc cat6 spec RJ45s are usualy higher spec/quality than Cat5 connectors..
Its most likely A bad termination, A Break in the Cat 5 Cable, or you have used the wrong RJ45 connectors for the type of Cat5...
I assume you would of used Cat5e Solid core for your runs, RJ45 crimp/ Modular for Solid cable must be used, If you use RJ45 Modular crimp connectors for Stranded cat 5 this can introduce issues especially on longer runs over 10-15mtrs,Using Stranded connectors on Solid Core can also Break the Wire where the pins press into the solid core wire..
