This video lecture explains the pins and wiring in Ethernet cables http://cablesupply.com/patch-cords/7-ethernet-patch-cord-cat5e.html and RJ45 plugs http://cablesupply.com/rj45-jacks-rj45-connectors/210-ethernet-rj45-modular-plugs-10-pack.html. We look at the 568A and 568B color codes, what they mean, and why they’re important. We also discuss when and why to use a straight-through cable versus a crossover cable.
