Hi Freelance,

Colours actually do not compare with different cable types.
The image in the link I sent you
Image
shows the wiring of the two connectors which shall be enough information to build a longer cable. The RJ45 is viewed from front with the nose up. The DSUB9 is shown from back where the wires are soldered. DSUBs typically have numbers next to the solder pins.
I.e. orange is connected to DSUB9 pin 1 and RJ45 pin 7.

You do not need to destroy the cable. You can check it with a self made cable tester. Use a LED with a small resistor in series and wire it up with a battery to see if a connection is present. Simply note down the connections. Things become even easier if you have a multimeter to check the connections.
