i've got a long cat 5 cable for my networking needs the only thing it's missing is that thing on the picture. so my question is can i get this somewhere online? so i can attach it to my cable on my own?
yea i though of going there, but i'm too lazy to make a trip in that direction so for now i am looking for some place online where i could get it. if i cant find it then i'll be going to stores around me
What your after is an RJ 45 connector, as mentioned you will require a special crimping tool, the connector itself can be bought from any electronics store.
If you are connecting it yourself be sure the pin out is correct for your application EG: PC to PC or through a hub, as each config requires a different pin out.
well as i connected it it's , on both ends with tab facing right
1 white with green
3 white with orange
5 white with blue
7 white with brown
right side. and as i said i tryed it for my dsl modem it worked. but as u say i hope it will work fine with router.
If you are going from PC - PC you use a straight through pin out
IE: pin1 to pin1, pin 2 to pin 2 etc. If you are going through a hub or router you need a crossover in the cable.
