When talking about Ethernet cables, there are two kinds of cables you can make, Straight Through and Crossover. Straight through Ethernet cables are the standard cable used for almost all purposes, and are often called “patch cables”. It is highly recommended you duplicate the color order as shown on the left. This configuration allows for longer wire runs. Meanwhile, the purpose of a Crossover Ethernet cable is to directly connect one computer to another computer (or device) without going through a router, switch or hub. The following cat 5 wire diagram shows the networking structure of the wiring.
