CAT5 Cable Wiring CAT5 Cable Wiring

Cable in your left hand, connector in your right, clip away from you. This is assuming you're eventually going to want to compress the connection with your right hand.

When you jam the cable into the connector, the colors should read (top to bottom):

Green Mate
Orange Mate
Blue Mate
Brown Mate

This Pattern is TIA/EIA 568A From "Ethernet, the Definitive Guide" by Charles E. Spurgeon--O'Reilly. My shop standardized on this one so that's the one I use.
