Ethernet Cable Color Coding Diagram
The T-568A and T-568B are two standards set by the TIA/EIA for the crimping of RJ-45 connectors.
Ethernet Cables have 8 color coded wires. There are two standards: T-568A and T-568B
If you wired both ends of the cable the same then it is called a straight through cable. This is the most common type of cable and are used to connect computer to switches or routers.
A Crossover cable can be used to connect two devices together directly. It reverses the sending and receiving pairs on one the one end of the cable. To create a crossover cable, you need to wire the one end of the cable with T-568A and the other end with T-568B.
