Question regarding cat5 Jacks Pt. 2

I've installed tooless Cat5 jacks on both ends of my cable using the T568A convention;
PIN NUMBER COLOR 1 Green/White 2 Green 3 Orange/White 4 Blue 5 Blue/White 6 Orange 7 Brown/White 8 Brown
I purchased a Cat5e patch cord and noticed that these wire colors do not match my jack colors.
They are set up the following way looking left to right with the snap release pointed up and the connection towards you:
orange/white, orange, blue/white, blue, green/white, green, brown/white, brown
Is this a problem ?? I feel that if as long as there is 8 wires, regardles of the color coming out of the router, there is a path to send and recieve data.
Am I correct ??
Thanks, Ray

together. One for the signal and one for a ground. This prevents what is called cross talk, or one wire's signal mixing with the next wire. Just looking at what you have , it may be that one is what they call a crossover cable. That is some of the wires are reversed from one plug to the next. They are made that way for several reasons. One is that you can hook 2 computers together with the crossover cable without a router. It only works for two computers that way in a network. The cables are not interchangable..

On convention Blue is first pair but if you are just extending a cable, all it matters is signal goes over on one on one basis without crossing over.(straight thru cable). So in this case it won't matter. Tony

Ignore colors on purchased preassembled cables. Often they are made by machines and have only a single color.
There are two types of cables, straight and twisted pair. There are two types of sockets 568A and 568B. There is no such thing as a 568A/568B cable so all you really want to do is know if its straight or cross-over.

You can't relate the wire to the socket per-se.

Be sure to use good quality stuff and do good crimps. 100Mb full duplex can be tough if your install is not good. I use toenail clippers to trim off the wire beyond the connector edge. I also when possible use store bought cable for outside of wall stuff. its just touchy getting that 100Mb not to fall back to 10Mb or half-duplex.
