How to distinguish a Cat 6 plug from a Cat-5 or Cat-5E plug:
To distinguish a Cat-6 plug from a Cat-5 or a Cat-5E plug, just simply look at the way the cable’s wires have been terminated at the end of the plug:
A Cat-5 or a Cat-5E plug will ALWAYS have all eight wires in a single row
The majority of Cat-6 plugs will have wires in two rows with four wires per row
Some Cat-6 plugs will have wires in two rows with 6 wires in the top row and 2 wires in the bottom row
