How many people here make their own ethernet cords?

Recommended Posts

The 1000ft of wire was 150$

The extra clips were 15$ish

The covers at the end were like 7$

Yeah, I make 'em too, but you're gettin' ripped on the pricing.

A box of Cat5 shouldn't cost more than $75 at the highest.

Depending on the quantity of the connectors and boots [ 100? ], they should also be about half that price.

Check Monoprice.com

They also sell on eBay but their website prices are better.

I think you'll find their pre-made cable prices hard to beat too.

It's definitely cheaper, if you are networking your home, to make your own cables.  There's really not much to it....doing your own coaxial cable is pretty straight-forward too.  Plus, it never hurts to have a length of cat-5 or cat-6 kickin around.  You never know, right?
