There two types of cables, it depends on what you want to use the cable for, they are straight-through and Cross over cable. We are going to learn straight-through cable first.
I mean cables that transfer network connection from a switch or hub to a system,
There is a colour code for this type of cable, first of all you will need some things as your tools; you will need a crimping tool and a Lan Tester,
Then you will need a network cable and R-J 45 probably Cat-6 or Cat-5.
The colour code for this cable we are talking about is;
Orange White, Orange, Green White, Blue, Blue White , Green, Brown White, Brown.
And it is the same for both ends of the cable.
The next thing to do is to arrange the cables in the R-J 45 this way:
Then the next thing is to crimp it to get the job done. You also do the same thing on the other end. After doing that it is now time to test your job for accuracy, a normal tester usually has 1-8 numbers signifying the 8 diffferent wires in the cable, if anyone skips or it reads a number before its turn you know that
the job is not done well. but if the tester reads serially from 1-8, you got it right.
The second type of crimping is used when you want to connect to same devices to each other like, connecting a computer to a computer.
The colour code for this cable is
Orange White, Orange, Green White, Blue, Blue White , Green, Brown White, Brown. for one end and
Green White, Green, Orange White, Brown White, Brown, Orange, Blue, Blue White for the other end
After doing that it is now time to test enjoy.
Note that this cable cannot be tested for accuracy because it will not read in the tester, so if it do not connect between the system you just recrimp it.
