Ethernet Cable
Create a Straight and Crossover cable

In a straight through cable, pins on one end correspond exactly to the corresponding pins on the other end (pin 1 to pin 1, pin 2 to pin 2, etc.). Using the same wiring (a given color wire connects to a given number pin, the same at both ends) at each end yields a straight through cable.

An Ethernet crossover cable is a type of Ethernet cable used to connect computing devices together directly where they would normally be connected via a network switch, hub or router, such as directly connecting two personal computers via their network adapters.

In this tutorial i will explain how to create a straight and crossover networking cable. In a Straight cable both ends are the same color. On the other hand a Crossover cable have a specific color combination. Follow the tutorial and learn how to create this. Its a good skill to know if you are into networking.


Here are some tool you will need to do this work correctly. Wire cutter, a rj45 crimper, rj45 cable and the rj45 heads.

Step 1:

Cut the shielding off the cable, which will expose the 4 pairs of wires. Blue, Green, Orange and Brown. When it comes to creating a straight through cable the color combination does not matter. What ever the color of the first end is, make the second end the same.

When it comes to RJ45 Standards its different. The standard rj45 colors are:

White Orange
White Green
White Blue
White Brown

Step 2:

Line the wires according to the image below. This is the rj45 Straight through standard colors. This will be the same color on both ends of the cable.

Cut the excess wire off, i usually leave half inch. This usually fits in the head perfect.

Above is the final cut. The White Orange is Pin 1 and Brown is Pin 8.

Pin Outs ( tab facing down and pins away from you )

Step 3:

RJ45 Head, When placing the wires into the head try to line it up length wise. Similar to what is shown couple images above.


In the image above you can see how the wires are inserted into the rj45 head.

Make sure the wires reach the copper / gold pins. This is important because its what connect the wires to what ever you plug the cable into.

Now, use the crimper can crimp the wires and you are finished. Below is the wiring diagram for a straight and crossover cable. You can create the crossover the exact way just change the wire position according to the image below.
