    As a habit I try to avoid stringing cable without RJ45 connectors already installed but I recently installed a 110 ft. Cat 5e cable that require manually connected (female) RJ45's at each end. When I tested the cable my tester blinked from 1-8 on one end and 8-1 on the other end. I used A type configuration on both ends. Any expertise appreciated...

    With the order of continuity being different on each end, it isn't possible you used the same order on both ends. The problem is going to be figuring out which end is wrong. Get out your magnifying glass a look closely.

    My guess is that you flipped the RJ45 connector when inserting wires into one of the ends. All of the instructions I've seen tell me to hold the retainer clip downward then gives me the order in which to insert the wires, left to right. You probably did it holding the retainer clip down on one end and up on the other.
