What exactly are you asking? CAT5 has TWO different wiring patterns. On of them isn't widely used. That said, CAT5 has only 8 wires. What type of port are you trying to adapt to?

How is a 9 pin serial port going to get you on the net? Maybe you know something I don't.

Try the link below. google Cat 5 wiring diagram for other info.

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.

There are 9 and 25 pin serial connectors/adapter that have a RJ-45 jack for connection. They are used to make serial connection with a RJ-45 patch cord. Just be cause it has the jack doesn't mean it;s an ethernet connection. The RJ-45 serial jack is used on point of sale equipment and control ports of network equipment.

I am always learning something. However, the OP did state the word Internet.

I am still confused.

3 wires are needed for most rs-232c systems. Most times they didn't actually use a rj-45 it was a dec or other connector that had the clip on the side.

Slipp is a different deal also.

Like wizard-fred said, these are commonly used on POS machines. They have other uses too...e.g. a straight thru adaptor, a null modem adaptor and a CAT cable makes a null modem cable and gives the option of making up a 3' or 100' cable.

I still don't know what rbauder is trying to do though. Maybe connect an external modem to a pc?

If the OP hadn't mentioned going on the Internet I wouldn't have responded at all.

Some have never seen connectors used for other purposes. Original 25 pin female for serial, 15 pin video for serial, 25 pin for SCSI. I just assume that he assumes the RJ-45 is for ethernet/internet.

Now I am confused too. The OP never mentioned RJ-45. I assumed the 9 pin the OP was referring to was a serial port on a motherboard.

He did mention CAT5 and "clip down" OtH. Sounds like he wants to terminate a serial cable with an RJ45 end.

OK, too bad the OP hasn't come back to explain what they are trying to do.

My impression is that he has a RJ-45 jack with wire leads in colors specified with pins for db-9 connector. He wanted to know which color goes for what pin number. I have seen such jacks in connector kits.

I understand what both ends of the custom cable would be.

I don't understand how that will get them on the internet.

He's making an assumption that a network connector must mean a network connection.

I am not clear on what hardware you are connecting to but it sounds like you need a crossover connection. Look at the link below.

If you are working with CAT5 cable there should be only 8 wires in the cable. It isn't clear to me how you are ending up with an extra wire.

If I am not mistaken the part linked above may be an adapter to use CAT5 cable on a serial printer. I could be wrong.

"an ihub goes from 9pin serial to ethernet to connect a reciever to the internet".

What is a receiver to the internet (Modem)? I am still not clear what you are trying to accomplish with the custom cable. If we understood better we might have another method to accomplish the same thing.

a IHub connects an fta reciever to a modom from a 9 pin serial to ethernet i read on a fta site that a dongal cable would do the same thing that is what iam working on so that is the connection i need. on the reciever the 9 pin serial connects to com port 1 one for programming after it is programmed that serial port needs to connect to the internet threw an ethernet port for (iks)internet key sharing .so all i need is a cable that goes from 9pin to ethernet or just some kind of connector that does that

After doing some Googling it appears you are trying to circumvent paying for services with your cutom cable and hacking the dongle key.
