This does not include connectors. I wired to screws on the back of wall plates.
john  Jan 27, 2014
No, just the bare wire. Good cable though. I picked up the pins and a crimper at local retailer. A bit tedious to put them on, but not hard
nate  Jan 26, 2014
No. This cable doesn't ship with the ends installed. This is just the cable which will allow you to make custom length cables. You will have to purchase the plugs rj45 separate and terminate the ends yourself. I recommend EZ RJ45 connectors

Just the bare wire. No ends. I only bought 1 foot in order to get a discount on my entire purchase. I have found that the ends are not simple to install and sometimes require a dedicated tool. Perhaps there is another way to get the ends on, as I actually needed to do that in my current situation. As for now, I bought the female ends and just used another made up cord. Works for now. Good luck

No sir.
