 RJ-45 Won't Fit into Router

I bought a bulk cat 5 cable from lowe's and had to buy RJ-45 Connectors to put on the ends. The RJ-45's I purchased will not fit into the port on the back of my router??? It alsmost fits?? Will it fit after I crimp the wire in it? Am I missing something? Is there something I do not know as I made sure RJ-45 was the one I needed. Please help!! Thank you

Dear Chris,

The model and make of the router would be helpful information. Without that there is nothing I can help you with as there are a few different routers depending on who your service provider is and what kind of broadband service your have.
