 100Base/10Base Patch Cable
Dear Support:

I am rather new at the cabling process. I have found your site to be very informative and helpful. Thank you!

What I am looking for is the pinout diagram of a 10base / 100base patch cable; not a crossover, as I've already found that on your site. I can't seem to find the diagram for the patch cable. Can you please help me on this?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Marc,

For the straight-trough patch cable please refer to T568A pin payout. The only consideration would be to keep both ends of the cord the same T568A pin layout scheme.
You may prefer to choose T568B instead, but it really doesn't matter as far as you keep both ends the same.
For the pin layouts mentioned, please browse here:
