    Network crossover cable question
    Looking at the coloured wires that enter the RJ45 connectors at either end of my network cable, the colours are in the same order from left to right on the back of both connectors does that mean it is a crossed over cable??

    Thanks

    DSB

    (both ends, for 100mb standard ethernet cable)

    for crossover, one end will be like above.
    the other end will be.
    greenwhite, green, orangewhite, blue, bluewhite, orange, brownwhite, brown.

    Short answer if they are the same on both ends they are not cross-overs.

    Sheesh guys not everyone wants to know all the wiring schematics and what the looks of all wiring types are some people do want a simple answer to their question

    ;)

    OK, LwdSquashman, your cable diagrams are better than mine. I'll give the edge of clarity to mine, but all the style points go to yours! :D:D:D
