Networking cables are used to connect one network device to other network devices or to connect two or more computers to share printer, scanner etc. Different types of network cables like Coaxial cable, Optical fiber cable, Twisted Pair cables are used depending on the network's topology, protocol and size. The devices can be separated by a few meters (e.g. via Ethernet) or nearly unlimited distances (e.g. via the interconnections of the Internet).

    Ethernet RJ45 connection wiring and cable  Nowdays ethernet is a most common networking standard for LAN (local area network) communication. The ethernet cable used to wire a RJ45 connector of network interface card to a hub, switch or network outlet. The cable is called wipe, patch cord, straight-thru cable.

    Ethernet 10 / 100 Mbit (RJ45 cat 5) network cable wiring This is most common cable for 10/100Base-T ethernet networks. This cable will work with both 10Base-T (10 Mbit ethernet) and 100Base-TX (100 Mbit ethernet) and is used to connect a network interface card to a hub or network outlet. These cables are sometimes called wipes.

    Ethernet 10/100/1000 Mbit crossover cable This cable can be used to connect two computers together without a hub, or to connect two hubs together (without using an uplink port). If you are connecting two hubs together and one of them has an uplink port, use a straight cable. Most hubs nowadays are autosensing.
