Network cabling

I am using keystone jacks.

I am going from keystone jack to keystone jack with bulk cable, and then using pre-built patch cords to tie in hubs and PCs into the female side of the jacks.

What is the wiring configuration for the keystone jacks?

This is what the keystone jack looks like I got from Frye's.

1 wht/org 5 wht/blu
2 org/wht 6 blu/wht
3 wht/brn 7 wht/grn
4 brn/wht 8 grn/wht

Do I keep both ends the same wiring config. for the jacks?
How do I test? I don't have any of the testing equip.

Yes, that order is correct if the rj45 connector is facing north when you are looking at it.

Also, dont use hubs, thats a waste of money, switches are so cheap nowadays.

Your wiring is correct. The hubs will be a constriction if you are doing anything more than sharing a printer out. You cna get some decent linksys or Dlink switches for the same price.
