The memory aid
I use for crimping Cat 5
for 10/100 base T
First arrange the wiring
in the following pattern:
Always alternate between colours
So after arranging you should have:
Green GreenTrace Blue Bluetrace Orange OrangeTrace Brown BrownTrace
Next swap the OrangeTrace, and the BlueTrace, to end up with:
Greeen GreenTrace Blue OrangeTrace Orange BlueTrace Brown BrownTrace
giving the optimal configuration
for 10/100 baseT transmission.
Crimp, and serve with fresh parsley, on a bed of hot pasta.
Note that this is not the same colour pattern as the IEEE standard wiring spec, but it is the same wiring.
