    Has anyone seen/have a cat6 cable wiring diagrams somewhere. Any links is
    great. There's plenty of CAT5, but not Cat6.. Thanks.

  2. Cat 6 cabling is the same thing as Cat 5. The only difference is that the
    testing criteria are higher for Cat 6.

    Thanks Matthew, but then why if I used Cat5 (Not Cat5 enhanced) cable to
    connect a Gigabit NIC to a Gigabit Swith port I cannot get Gigabit speed but
    only 10/100MB speed. The Manufacturer told me that I must use Cat5e or Cat6
    cable to get gigabit speed.

    Has to do with the twists per foot, cable construction, etc. Nothing to do
    with the cable pinout.

    Dumb question time: Why are you asking if the manufacturer told you
    to use Cat5e or better cable?

    There's no difference in the pinout, it's the cable's capabilities.
    Get CAT5e or CAT6 patch cables and your issue will go away.

    Re: Cat6 wiring

    Cat 6 wiring is one of the most standard Gigabit Ethernet as compared to other protocols that is compatible with Cat 5, 5e or 3 cable standards. Cat 6 wiring has more featured specification that can be used for crosstalk and system noise.

    As Cat5 and Cat6 are nearly the same you could try to follow the instructions in this tutorial. I never set up one so I can't help you more. ;)
