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



EDIT:

2. There is no difference in connectivity between 568B and 568A cables. Either wiring should work fine on any system*. (*see notes below)

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.

Yeah, I bought a crimper ,25 caps and 30 ft of cable at the hardware store , if I made 2 15 ft cables and sold them I could pay for everything I bought :p
