i used cat 5e 568b colouring code. but when i connect it to the network card the green light blinks continiously. when i take another wire it does not blink. what could be the problem. do i need to couple the wires again?
try recrimping the cables using the appropriate color code. you can use the procedure laid out in the firewall.cx networking section where details are given about every sort of colour coding.

yes that could be the cause. as suggested, you are not supposed to mix up the wiring, as the pin outs specifically corresponding to data and other channels which is critical for data transfer over that cable.

If you are concerned about the wiring, I'd suggest investing a little in a simple cable tester. They are pretty affordable for a basic wire mapper. At the very least it'll show if you have crosses or shorts in your terminations.
