    A:  Hi Dennis the answer is probably depending on the Cat 6 cable you bought some of that have conductors with thicker insulation but in most cases a Cat 5e connector will go on Cat 6 cables but I cannot guarrantee the speed hope that helped Ron at ron.kipper@idealindustries.com

      A:  You could, but you might not get the full bandwidth/speed. You should use the CAT6 version with CAT6 cable.

      Won't crimp pins 1 and 2 correctly...
      I laughed at a previous review that stated pins 1 and 2 don't work. I thought it must be their crimper. Low and behold, out of a dozen connectors used, not one would crimp pins 1 and 2 correctly. This was with the Klein as well as the IDEAL crimpers. Back they went and I ordered from my normal supplier.

        Put wires in correct order slip into connector brass terminals up and crimp using crimping tool for a patch (straight thru) cord. Note : patch and crossover types are the difference from "B" to "A" type connections.

        Looks to be well constructed. Price wasn't too bad compared with buying online plus shipping, and i didn't have to wait a week to get them.
