I'm assuming you are trying to build your own patch cable..

Also assuming you are trying to create a straight through cable and not a crossover cable

The order of the wires depends on which wiring standard (568-A or 568-B) you are using. Most cables that I've purchased here tend to be in the 568B standard which (starting from pin 1) is layed out:

Orange/White
Orange
Green/White
Blue
Blue/White
Green
Brown/White
Brown

You can wire for the A standard as well (there is no functional difference between the two) just make sure you stay consistent with one standard.

edit: google holds a wealth of info on making your own patch cables.. including here, here, and here.
