I've always heard about two ways to crimp the ends of an RJ45 cable, namely:

Standard Patch Cable A
EIA/TIA 568A Color Scheme

Standard Patch Cable B
EIA/TIA 568B Color Scheme (AT&T)

As a point of clarification, which one should I follow when making cables for a LAN network? PCs-to-hub configuration I mean.

It really doesn't matter, so long as you are consistent. 568B is more common, though.

So... in terms of speed and reliability, they're practically the same? :)
