I had to wire up the house for *internet* twice, and wondered why the RJ45 connectors were made a certain way. Why not have the wires protrude beyond the connector and then cut them off after crimping ?
I have all the *tools* to make my own cables, but I always had one or two where the connection was not correct and had to do it over again. The *problem* was NOT correct layout, but the wires not quite inside the connector. I have a doohicky that checks for correct connections.

I guess, if you wish long enough, you get what you want !!

*CableWholesale*, now sells connectors which do have the wires protrude before crimping !!
EZ-RJ45 | Shielded Cat5e Crimp Plugs | 100 Pieces

Now I have to find out where you can buy less than 100 at a time ...



Wiring up the house twice ...
Both times the wiring was OK, but then I realised, after a brown out and then a power off time, I lost internet connection. The modem/router, was in another part of the house, and thus NOT on the UPS system.
So I changed the location of the modem/router to the same place where my UPS is located.
I know, I should have thought about that earlier !!

I have a dual fuel generator to be used in case of power outs.
I case of a power out, all I have to do is switch to the generator supply for the fridge and freezer (I can *see* the wall plates and plugs) and also a cord to my UPS.
NO cord to the modem/router which should have been connected to the UPS ... duuuuh.
The cords from the generator to the appliances have a *lit-up* connector at the end.
The UPS apparently can provide power for about 10 minutes ? Long enough to turn on my generator and hook things up.

My last power out (3 days ago) was more than 6 hours !
Some idiot(s) drove into a power pole !
Strange thing is that they have not caught the criminals yet ...

Last but not least, if you are looking for the connection diagramme:
