Are you looking for cat5 straight through cable or crossover??

option 1 (straight through)
each pin correspond to the other end in the same spot.

If all the cables are colored the same then you need an ohm meter to identify them.

Option 2: (crossover)


Pin 1 correspond to pin 3
Pin 2 correpond to pin 6
Pin 3 to Pin 1
Pin 6 to Pin 2

network cable stopped being recognized


rj45 (cat5) sockets have 8 internal tensioned wire prongs, (six are used for cat5 ethernet)
use weakens the tension and they can be dislodged sideways vertically or disconnected from the internal cabling. Likewise solder connnections to the motherboard fail.
a possible fix is to power down the pc, and with a jewellers screwdriver ensure that all the internal wires are present, straight, aligned, and protruding across the opening.
If there are missing wires(broken) then the rj45 socket shoould be replaced at your local pc store, (not walmart)a796c91.jpg
