How to wire it depends upon the application? Are you making a "straight" or "crossover" cable?

This article illustrates the correct way.

I make mine all the time. You need a cat 5 crimper and good eyes. It does take some practice. There is a A and B wiring method. I think I use B method but whatever you do use the same method on both ends of the cable.
