Dude, thanks for putting all this info in an easy to follow tutorial. Thanks to this thread I did my NES, SNES & Saturn cables without any difficulty! (except I had to sand down some of the insulation on the NES/SNES wires for them to fit into the RJ45 plug)
Would a usb to RJ-45 adapter like [ETHERNET 10/100 NETWORK ADAPTER USB TO LAN RJ45 CARD - eBay (item 190368894214 end time Jul-27-10 07:14:18 PDT)"]this](http://cgi.ebay.com/ETHERNET-10-100-NETWORK-ADAPTER-USB-LAN-RJ45-CARD-/190368894214?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c52decd06) work work also?
I just don’t feel like taking off the female b on a working chtulhu.
No. If you RJ-45 mod the Cthulhu, you can leave the female B alone.
On the boards that I used, I took off the USB B sockets just to see how hard it was to remove, but I didn’t have to. I then did it twice for symmetry.
That USB adaptor, I’m pretty sure it won’t work for what i’m guessing your thinking.
Okay thanks, I was just pondering if there was a way to convert a usb 4 to an 8 pin socket externally.
I have to ask, where’s a good place to get the RJ45 boots and jacks without having to buy like packs of 50? After all, I’m only gonna be using about 4 or 5.
Ok, I’m having some diff. with wiring the GC extension wire I received from ebay. It’s a 10ft. white extension, here’s the link 10 ft controller extension cord Nintendo Wii/Gamecube - eBay (item 260627147414 end time Jul-28-10 09:35:11 PDT). Now I’ve tried wiring the 3 top rows to the RJ45, but doesn’t seem to read.
I’ve updated the firmware on the MC and evened wired my other one in reverse thinking I might have wired it backwards, but didn’t wort either. My PS3/USB ones work fine.
I’m wondering if it’s the extension itself or just me? Here’s a pic
Anyone got some suggestions? Got some errands to run, but if anything, I’ll try the bottom row of green, blue, and yellow as a last resort.
get a multimeter and a thin wire… there’s a youtube video i think for the gamecube
Pah. Live in too small of a town for anything even remotely close. Looks like I can get enough for 50 for about $10 shipped on amazon, though. Hmm. I’ll just experiment around, lol. Ethernet port to something random like micro USB so that I can use my camera on a wired connection. Lol.
For some reason GC wires always give me the most problems. I always get it backwards, then get the crimp pins backwards. It is best to take a break from it for a few hours and start over from scratch with a fresh mind.
Thanks Torta & rt, will give it another shot when I get home. Will post results
Ok, I’m getting too frustrated with this! Rt, you got a pair of 6ft. GC RJ45 nodded wires up for sale?
At the moment no, I don’t have any GC wires around. Try posting in the trading forum for one.
I was looking around the forum to find out if there were any variants of the RJ-45 ports that do not require screws to configure into the case. Reason being is that i’m receiving a case that I would prefer not to have drilled around and would like to find another way to add the jack in and secure it without damaging the case.
I think I saw on one of the older threads where someone had used a Keystone RJ-45 jack and cut a hole in a button plug. That said, I’m not sure how you could have the RJ-45 and not drill some sort of hole in the case, unless there was already a 24mm hole in said case for you to use
you should look at post 3 you can use a Din 8 connector and route the cord through a notch. Remember to label that pinout and tape it to your stick.
Quick question because I looked through two RJ-45 tutorial threads and could not find this!
I have plenty of leftover Cat5 cable and want to use what I have for two more MC Cthulu mods this coming year… I’m obviously going to use the RJ ends first…
How to do I order the remaining Cat5 wires into new RJ-45 containers? IE, what’s the pinout order for the color of the wiring within the cables?
NEVER MIND! Found it here at http://www.swhowto.com/CAT5_Ch1.htm
Seems like this should be in the RJ-45 tutorial… Just in case…
For those of us who are nuts enough to make more than two multi-system controllers!
Thinking about it, that’s actually the most convinent option next to putting the keystone jack into a 24 mm button plug. The case still has a notch on it so all I would need to do is wire it then create the connection ends for the cord. Thanks for the heads up!
