I not sure what the colour sequence is but wouldn't a CAT5 or CAT6 patch cable give you the required speed. I think it would. I wouldn't go below CAT5.

Good Luck

CAT5 will work. There are 2 wiring patterns !A & B. It doesn't matter which you choose, but be consistent with whatever one you do choose (use the same wiring pattern cables throughout).

TechRepublic actually had an article regarding creating CAT5 patch cables. Here's the link:

I found this site very good. Very clear diagrams for making 5A 5B and crossover cables

Click on structured wiring and then the link How to Assemble Patch Cables.
