How to wire a LAN cable with an RJ45 connector

Crimping is a process of making a network cable into a complete and perfect network cable so that it can be used. A simple definition of crimping is making a network cable.

Many errors occur when you try to crimp the LAN cable yourself, it can lead to network failures such as network disconnection and other glitches. Before crimping the cable, you should know the color arrangement of the UTP cable to be arranged beforehand. There are 2 types of UTP cable, straight cable and crossover cable.

  1. Straight cable

Cables in particular are often used to connect different devices, for example: computers with hubs, computers with switches. When arranging the straight cables, the arrangement is the same at both ends, namely:

  • White-orange
  • orange
  • White green
  • blue
  • White blue
  • green
  • White Brown
  • chocolate
  1. Cross cable

Cross (cross), is often used to connect the same device, for example: computer to computer, hub to hub, switch to switch. For the standard arrangement of cables at the two different ends, namely a straight cable arrangement at the first end, while the second end is arranged as follows.

  • White green
  • green
  • White-orange
  • blue
  • White blue
  • orange
  • White Brown
  • chocolate

Now that you know the arrangement of UTP cables, here are the steps for crimping LAN cables with the arrangement of cables used being a straight cable arrangement.

Tools needed:

  • UTP cable
  • RJ-45 connector
  • Crimping pliers
  • LAN tester

Tutorials

1. The first step is to prepare equipment in the form of a UTP cable, an RJ-45 connector, a crimping tool, and a LAN tester.

2. Cut the end of the UTP cable with the crimping tool, then arrange the cables in the order Straight according to the color of the cable arrangement.

3. Unwrap and straighten the cable, then plug it into the RJ-4 connector.

4. Make sure the cable is level and touches the copper end of the RJ-45 connector.

5. Then crimp with the crimping tool.

6. After this test with LAN Tester.

This is a tutorial on crimping LAN cables, hopefully it will be useful.
