I have just purchased a few Cat6 network cables from ebay and I have looked at the end of the RJ45 connector and all the pairs inside are straight and not staggered compared to my other Cat6 cable that I got a few months ago.
If you are unsure what I mean they have a look at this picture http://www.dnrdataconnection.com/productImages/223.jpg the load bar clearly shows the arrangement of the pairs being staggered.
I have made lots of Cat5 cables but never a Cat6 so not sure if it matters?
Can any one shed some light on this please.
Looks like the cable is using Cat5e connectors and not Cat6 ones, will this make any difference?
