Question about Leviton (102-5G108-RW5)
It doesn't matter whether you use the 568A or 568B wiring as long as you use the same at both ends. (If you use A at one end and B at the other you wind up with a crossover cable, handy for some applications but not what you need.) The easiest way to check a cable is with a cable tester, and then all you need to do is look at LEDs to see any problems. You can also use an ohmmeter to check that each wire goes the right place, but it's more work.
When using insulation displacement connectors, be sure you're using a punch-down tool to seat the wires in the appropriate slots. You can use the plastic tool often supplied with these connectors, or you can get a better quality spring-loaded one at reasonable cost. Don't rely on the plastic "stuffer cap" since it sometimes doesn't push the wire down fully into the metal contacts. I often find a wire that looks seated, but isn't, is what is causing the trouble. Also, especially if the lighting's not good, it's easy to mix up wires. Punching to the 568A code at one end and B at the other is not a hard mistake to make.
