I do have a cable, blue one, but that's laying around useless just like JGPH1A.
When I'm home from uni, the cable to the wall socket is red, the one to the switch is light grey, the one from the switch to another wall socket is (probably) blue again and the loooong one from that socket to the DSL router is a darker grey.
Wait, part of the long cable got fried by some plumber, so I had to put in two more sockets and yet another cable which is light grey again.

It varies based on what I bring home from work. Right now I have a yellow cable since I left my fancy schmancy black one at the client site this week (I'll get it back next week though.)
My house is wired with Cat6 cabling that is grey. The cables from the patch panel to my Cisco switch are blue and so are the patch cables from the wall to the various devices in my office. I also have a couple of wireless acces points that are wired in via blue cables. I have one crossover cable connected to my PIX firewall that is red.

I thought RJ45 was almost always blue. Maybe it is Blue in Aussieland. The office has blue cable everywhere. Thought I may have seen white cable around but it may have been for another purpose. No orhaange or yellow seen around the home or the office.

A grey one from my college's dorm room wall plug to a hub, a purple one from the hub to my roomate's X-Box, a white one from the hub to my computer's surge protector, and a black one from the surge protector to my computer.
Also, a yellow and light blue cable back at my house for my DSL connection.

Okay time to get nerdy now....RJ-45 is the jack...The proper term is called Category 5,5e or 6 cable. As for the colour of mine, well black cable leaves the modem and goes into the router. blue cable goes to my windows box. green cable goes to my linux box. and light blue goes into my mac laptop.
