    the critical part is crimping the RJ onto the cable ends.

    But the pic is so bad that I can't see any detail !

    Thanks for the Instructable Emills. I had to Google UTP to figure out what it meant but this was useful because I need to fix a few CAT5 cables where the little tabs are broken off the RJ45 connector. From the look of it, I guess the crimping tool is what makes this simple. Is that true?

    Since the materials already include a "UTP cable" how is this making a UTP cable? .

    I am pretty sure "cable" in this instance is just the CAT5 or CAT6 wire.
