Making Your Own Network Cables
 
No matter whether you're putting together a small home network, or maintaining a major network in your office, you'll need network cables. If you decide to make your own Cat 5 cable, you'll save a lot of money in the long run, as buying rolls of cable, a baggie of RJ-45 connectors, and the necessary tools will be a lot cheaper and pay for itself in a short period of time if you have an ongoing need. PC911 shows you how easy it is to make your own network cables.

RJ45 Wiring Diagram (gif)
 
Color-coded wiring chart for network RJ-45 patch cable termination. Diagram for EIA/TIA 568b. EIA/TIA 568a, reverse the orange and the green wires. Cross-over cable, wire one end as TIA 568b and the other end as 568-a. Home-made patch cables are for emergency use ONLY. Commercial patch cables are FAR BETTER. 1. Made of flexible, stranded wire, 2. RJ45 connectors penetrate the stranded wire and hold the mechanical-electrical connection better. 3. Precision-built and certified for Cat5e/CAT-6 specifications (not just tested for direct current (DC) continuity). 4. Support for the wire at it's entrance. IT AIN'T CHEEP TO SAVE MONEY ON PATCH CABLES!!
