Mod replacement for CAT5e

One end is has a connector and one doesn't.  I've heard so many different configuration standards that it is still unclear to me which is correct.

Probably due to the infrequency of this type of stuff, I still always agonize over doing the mod replacements.

Could someone shed some light what the proper configuration is and how to make this less painful in the future?

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

If your referring to the wiring scenarios, there are two generally used 568A or 568B:
This link is pretty good for explaining them: http://cablesplususa.com/rj45-utp-guide.php
Most often you will see 686B used however.

You must make both ends the same or you are never  going to get a connection.

Fred,

I'm confused.  When you say both ends the same, I should be able to use the T568B standard, left to right and clip down on both ends, correct?

frugalmule, yes you are correct, you should have the same connector configuration on both ends.

If you've got a connector on already identify which of the schemes it is and duplicate the scheme at the other end.

IF you make the other end with the alternate configuration you've just made yourself a crossover cable which can be useful in some circumstances.

frugalmule... Whatever standard is already used on one end should be used on the other. So if you notice it is T564B on the end with the connector, then yes, you should use T564B on the other end. If you notice T564A, then you should use T564A on the opposite end.
