    I'm trying to connect two jacks together using a cat 5 cable. One
    jack will be connected to a computer, the other a router. It'll be
    like this; computer <-> patch cable <-> jack <-> cable <-> jack
    <-> patch cable <-> router.

    Can I use 568B pin-out on both jacks?

    Try this site for connector pinouts. Being in an electronic and PC world it
    sure helps to have a fabulous resource like this on the web. They used to
    have a downloadable version of the guide so you might want that for future
    ref.

    I should have mentioned to pick A or B and stick with it. All jacks on the
    same run must use the pinout. All future in-wall runs should also be the
    same. Patch cords don't matter because they are 1 to 1 connected unless you
    use a X-over cable for direct connect PC to PC.

    I personally used B to do my place.
