you need two rj45 and a crimping tool. For the color combination would be white orange,orange,white green,blue,whiteblue,green,white brown, brown. Do you know how to crimp it ? If not you can watch it
at youtube.

Cut the exact length of wire that you only need. And have it 1 meter allowance incase you will fail at crimping.

I also happen to have a piece that my uncle gave me along with the cable, I don't remember why. I don't seem to need it.

You won't need that one anymore. Your wire is long enough I assume and what you need is 2 rj45 that is crimped correctly with the cat6 cable.

Maybe it was for a wall plug? Because my computer is across the house, and a level higher

No. Its a female connector of your rj45. If you want to extend the length of your wire. Buy another one of that because i think that one cant be use anymore and crimp it in the cable and follow the color in B(lower color). you can also watch it at youtube.

Also, is there a difference between cat5e rj45 connectors and cat6 rj45 connectors?

No. The only thing that are different are the wires. But they are just the same. They just differ in quality.

Ok thank you for everything but one more thing, I looked for rj45 connectors in my nearest tech store and they mostly sell them in 50 or 100 packages. I also noticed the 100 pack was cheaper than the 50 units one, does that mean they can be of different qualities? Its rj45 8PC8 right?

I used the standard crimping tool and RJ45 connectors until I came across this:

https://www.platinumtools.com/products/crimpers/ez-rjpro-hd-crimp-tool-100054c/



As you can see, you pull the wires through the RJ45 male end and then the crimping tool crimps the end to lock the cable in the connector and then cuts the wires off at the other end. If you haven't done terminations like this before, you have to be very careful about making sure the wires go all the way through the end of the RJ45 connector and under the metal contacts. I've done numerous terminations and occassionally I mess up where a wire doesn't go all the way through to the end. When I switched to this system, no more issues. It's more expensive but you're guaranteed to have proper terminations.
