    Do I want the 568-B or 568-A? I just have a simple home network.

    call Macgyver...no really if you have a fry's electronics near you go there and for like 40 bucks you can buy like 1000ft of cat5 cable and then buy some connectors. With the info you are looking for you can sell the cat5 cables in certain increments on ebay or to friends and make a killing

    I still hate making cables, or repairing them for that matter. I used to have a song I made up to remember the colors, laugh all you want but it worked.
