2009-11-06 14:02:31rev. 7ERROR FIXEDFrom a RJ45 connector perspective, the color of pin 1 of one side must be the same color as pin 8 on the other connector. This diagram implies the opposite. The pins are number from the left so pin 1 of connector 1 should have white-orange and pin 1 of the connector 2 should have brown.APPROVED

2012-01-07 10:00:10rev. 11You and everyone else on the net seem to have copied the same illustration...which is obviously wrong. Pin one on the router connector is in the same place as pin one on the workstation connector. The white/orange wire connected to pin one on the router side is connected to the opposite pin on the workstation side...pin eight.
