5 RJ-45 connectors
These are the physical connectors, which must be attached to
the ends of the cable. These connectors look much like a phone
line connector, only slightly wider (which allows more data
to be transmitted). A package of ten will run you up about $2.99
at your local Radioshack
or IT store.
Unless you have a really good pair of fine needle nose pliers
you will need to pick up one of these devices. These can be
quite expensive, averaging about $40 for a decent pair. These
devices usually also come with a wire stripping mechanism which
will remove the excess plastic around casing of the cat5 cable.
