I have a heap of cat5e cable left over from when I wired up the house network so I figured maybe it would be easier to make my own crossover cable to talk to LOR with DMX. Is it just a matter of buying the connectors putting the wires in the appropriate places and crimping the connector on. Is there anything I need to look for in a rj45 connector that will make connecting easier or are they all the same. Any tricks. I need to buy connectors and crimpers but figure the cheapo crimpers will do the job as I will probably only ever make a few cables.
