Xcam XW3 POE Y Adapter pin out?

Can someone provide me with a picture or detailed description of the pinout of a Y Adapter for the Xcam XW3 camera (the newest one, with the power that leads into the house and not up by the camera)? 


Long story short, I had to reset my router to defaults and upon doing so I lost the cameras connection to the network.  The installer did not leave the handy dandy Y Adapter behind either, so I have spent a couple hours trying to find the wierd connector pin out so I can cut two ethernet cables and tie into a ethernet block, but I cant find where the pins would go into the block.


This is not the older style adpter/cable with the male DC out (I have one of those and it doesnt work in this situation), this is the Y adapter with two male outs and one female input.  I believe the online instructions said one male was yellow and the other male one was grey, if that helps at all.


Any help would be greatly appriciated.
