Carefully strip about 1 inch of the outer insulation without damaging the inner wires.
Untwist the inner wires and arrange them according to the T568B or T568A standard.
Trim the untwisted wires to about 0.5 inches from the insulation.
Insert the wires into the RJ45 connector, ensuring they are in the correct order.
Place the connector into the crimping tool and press down firmly to secure the connector to the cable.
Use a cable tester to ensure that the connections are correct.
