How To Make A CAT5 Network Cable
Recently I remodeled the attached garage into an additional room (which will include my revised ham shack) so that it became a functional area. Before hanging the dry wall I ran both electrical circuits and a network circuit so that I could not only supply power to the whole room but also 2 circuits for my ham radio equipment and computers. After pulling the CAT5 cables I had to terminate them for hooking up the wireless router and computers. This video shows and explains the exact sequence of the individual multicolored CAT5 wires and the order they need to be slipped into the connectors before they are crimped. WRITE DOWN THE WIRE COLOR CODE ORDER GIVEN IN THE VIDEO TO USE WHEN YOU ARE READY TO MAKE THE CONNECTIONS.
