Hello Edi4niza,

Are you referring to the color combination of rj45 pins? I can't think of any about color combination you mentioned. Anyway, if it is, then these are the color designations:

Pin 1 = white orange

Pin 2 = orange

Pin 3 = white green

Pin 4 = blue

Pin 5 = white blue

Pin 6 = green

Pin 7 = white brown

pin 8 = brown

Pin 1 is on the left. It is easy to memorize, all odd numbers have stripe colors.

I hope this is what you needed. Do inform me if this is not you are asking about and elaborate your question more.

If you don’t have bluetooth on that computer then another option that you will need to use in order to share the data with another computer will be to use a cable. Use a network cable to access the sharing folders of the two computers and then transfer the files to the other computer.

If you want to connect two computers only and form a simple local area network, you need to use a crossover cable instead of the standard network cable. The normal network cable is technically called a “straight-through cable” where the cables connected to each pin on one end goes straight through the respective pin on the other end.

The cable on pin 1 will go straight to pin 1 on the other end. The straight-through cable is the kind of cable normally used in local area networks with three or more computers connected. The crossover cable is configured to work differently with a straight-through cable because in a crossover cable, the connection of some pins crosses over to another pin.

Unlike with a straight-through cable, you cannot use a crossover cable to connect a computer to a hub. The crossover cable is specifically designed to connect or network two computers only. If you have a crimping tool and you know how to connect an RJ45 connector to a cable, you can follow the diagram above for proper configuration of the pins.

But if you don’t have any experience, you can buy a manufactured crossover cable like the Belkin CAT5E Crossover Cable 10 Feet for like $7.41.
