You are talking about a crossover cable for connecting two computers together. I'll have to look it up. You need for a 100 mbps network right ?

if its a patch cable it doesn't really matter
as long as the wires are in the same order on both sides
but any way.....the proper order is
IEA/TIA 568B Wiring (100Base-TX)
T2 White/Orange 1
R2 Orange/White 2
T3 White/Green 3
R1 Blue/White 4
T1 White/Blue 5
R3 Green/White 6
T4 White/Brown 7
R4 Brown/White 8

I hope that this will help you

Cross-over cable is Pin 1 to Pin3 on the other end (RJ45) & Pin 2 to Pin 6.
1= Tx
2=Tx
3=Rx
4=Not Used
5=Not Used
6=Rx
7=Not Used
8=Not Used.
