2013-01-18 19:24:32rev. 7ERROR FIXEDYour diagram labeled "EIA/TIA 568B Ethernet UTP cable" is displaying the arrangement for 568A.APPROVED
2013-04-09 06:16:12rev. 8INCORRECTGreat article, but 100 Base TX uses Pins 1,2,3 & 6, not 4,5,7,8APPROVED
2013-06-07 17:21:47rev. 8ERROR FIXEDIn table "EIA/TIA 568A or AT&T 258A Ethernet UTP cable" column incorrectly named "EIA/TIA 568B or AT&T 258A cable colors"APPROVED
2013-07-25 17:33:44rev. 11ERROR FIXEDThe table shown for EIA/TIA 568A is actually EIA/TIA 568B and vice-versa. The pinout tables are the wrong way around. This isn't personal opinion; every other reference found on the internet so far has 568A starting with green/white at pin 1.APPROVED
2013-09-09 20:24:55rev. 20CORRECTLooks great to me, was having a hard time finding a 568B that would correctly work for the male end of a cable that had been tied toa Leviton female wall jack using 568BAPPROVED
2013-10-30 04:36:46rev. 20ERROR FIXEDIn the box, 100Base-TX, 100Mbps should be 2 pairs pinf 1,2,3,6 and not 4,5,7,8.APPROVED
2013-11-25 19:14:59rev. 20ERROR FIXEDon the chart referencing wires used 100BASE-TX says it uses 4,5,7,8. 7 and 8 are used for POE and not data transmissionAPPROVED

2017-06-11 16:29:32rev. 27CORRECTYes Error on main page within the "IF it doesn't work" Did you align wires in correct order on both ends of cable? Is pin 1 of connector wired with white-orange (EIA/TIA 568B) or white-green (EIA/TIA 568B) on both ends of cable? i believe one should read (EIA/TIA 568A)APPROVED
