Do you know how to make a network cable? They are simple. They are easy. Today we will know how to make a network cable that is running category 5e or a category 5e patch cable. So we are going to have a length of cable that we’ve got. One about 10 feet and we are going to need a two modular plugs rj45. We also have our cat6 which is also about 10 feet, and we have a category 6 modular plug, and also we will be needing a rj45 crimping tool. It seems you can pick up your local hardware store on depot lowers, that kind of thing. You can buy them online. They are relatively inexpensive and you can use these tools to make a hundreds of cables. People always ask what is the difference between cat5e and cat6. First and foremost cat6 is a bigger cable.
It is a higher standard of cable and it is able to shoot gigabite networks down with a lot less crosstalk which is the noise that is made when electricity is running over the wires talking to each other and it slows down your network if you have too much crosstal. So cat5e will be good for gigabite. Cat6 is just better for gigabite networks if you find cat5 cable which does not have the e. It will not work for gigabit networks at all. Also, if you are doing this out of your home, cat6 is expensive by comparison with the cat5e. We were talking about like 30 feet versus cat5e which is like 15-16. But it is expensive to have a cat6. So unless you really need the higher standard cable, get cat5. It’ll do just fine. Scar the cable sheet so that you can break away the sheet and expose the conductors inside. Use it very gently. When you are going to scar the cable with kick cable wire and with the cutter, and you are going to bend the cable and you can see the real stress. These wires are designed to allow the users to have a better experience of having a fast internet.
