Make Network Cable Right Way

Making Network Cable Right Way

Making a network cable is familiar with an Ethernet cable, requires a few steps to ensure it is done correctly. Here are the steps to make a network cable:

Gather the necessary tools: You will need a crimped tool, a network cable tester, an Ethernet cable, and two RJ45 connectors.

Strip the cable: Use a wire stripper to remove about 1.5 inches of the outer jacket from the Ethernet cable. This will expose four twisted pairs of wires inside.

Untwist the pairs: Untwist the pairs of wires and arrange them in the correct order. The correct order is a typical print with the connector packages or can finds online.

The order should be as follows: white/orange, orange, white/green, blue, white/blue, green, white/brown, and brown.

Trim the wires: Use wire cutters to trim the wires so they are all the same length, about 1/2 inch.

Insert each wire into the appropriate slot in the connector. The wire order should match the order printed on the connector packaging.

Crimp the connector: Use the crimped tool to crimp the connector onto the cable, and ensure that it’s safely joining together.

Repeat on the other end: Repeat the above steps on the other end of the cable, ensuring that the wire order matches.

Test the cable: Use a network cable tester to ensure that the cable is working correctly.

By following these steps, you can make a network cable that will allow you to connect devices to a network.
