 Cat 6 connectors
Can someone please tell me the color code for making Cat 6 patch cables (the order the wires go into the RJ45 connector)??

Dear Dan ,

In this case CAT6 is not different from CAT5. Use the same pin layout from here: T568A/B.
If you are making straight-through cable, use T568A on one end and T568A on another.
If you are making cross-over cable, use T568A on one end and T568B on another.
