 Question by curtis S posted 21 Jun 2005
I am trying to finish the wiring done by the first guy. Basically, he has the keystone jack installed, and I just need to put a RJ45 end on the other end of the cable. The wiring on the keystone jack is:
W/Bl - Bl - W/Or - Or - W/Gr - Gr - Wbr - br

What I am stuck with is what order do I put the wires for the RJ45 jack

Any help would be great

Dear curtis,
Somewhere (hopefully) on the jack should be a marking A or B alternately T568A or T568B. You should match the wiring type on the other end. For the color code on this see:
and pick which scheme matches.
