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?

I may actually be insane.

I'm sure you will be able to buy them online somewhere, you'd need some sort of crimping tool to actually fit it though.

Try going to a local computer shop/store, they'll probably sort you out for a small fee, or possibly even free :)

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.

dude, i'll tell you a little secret. the order of the wires doesn't matter. the key is to get the wiring order on both ends of the cable the same. the order that it is supposed go in is:

(with the little tab thing facing down)
green
white stripe green
blue
orange
white stripe orange
white stripe blue
brown
white stripe brown

oDin.

Edit: all i want for xmas is the ablility to spell

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
