RJ-45 One end Left to right with tab facing down:
Brown - Blue - Blue white - Green - Green white - Brown white - Orange

DB9 to RJ45 converter : This is with converter open. Numbers should be
written somewhere on it but for the pin outs below I'm assuming that
the back of the DB9 connection i.e. not the bit you will be connecting
into the console, the upper left pinouts is Pin 1. (row with 5 pin
outs). Bottom right is Pin 6.
Pin 2 - Yellow
Pin 3 - Black
Pin 4 - Orange
Pin 5 - Red + Green
Pin 6 - Brown
Pin 7 - Blue
Pin 8 - White
Hope this helps.
