I have a load of CAT-5 network cable.
it doesnt have the plastik ends, but i have bough some.
ive also borrows a crimper tool kit which is used to attach the cable to the plastic ends.
in the crimping toolkit, if a large (multi) tool which looks like a pair of plyers,
if has a cutting part, and wire bareing part, and abouther part which i believe is used to insert the wires in the socket, and lock them in.
in the tool kit is also a small plastic tool...looks asif it may be used to grip wires ?
looks a bit like the tiny tiny gun will smith uses in MEN IN BLACK (the first film)
i need to know...
How to i wire to cable as a normal netowrk cable ?
how do i wire the cable as a crossover cable ?
(basically, i need to know what order colours need to go for each)
ALSO... i will probably be making a little junction box part way through the cable so i can change it from crossever to straight. (i need crossover for normal use between my 2 PC's, but i need straight so i can use it on a HUB for LAN parties)
ALSO... i dont have an instruction manual, and cant figure out how to use the tool
anyone have any experiance ?
