Two most common causes of mistakes I've faced:
1. Cable crossed or straight. That ties in neatly into male vs. female connectors. At the end, I've built myself an own cable tester to find out which is straight and which is crossed.
2. Hardware flow control lines. Some devices use them, some don't and if a device uses that, you better solder the lines in place.
