is this the right crossover cable?


Recommended Posts

Crossover cables are easy to make and I make them all the time. If you don't intend on making lots of Ethernet Cables, I suggest you just buy a premade one. Most places sell them at outrageous prices, so if you have a local computer store, I'd call them and ask if they make custom cables. If they do, you can usually get them cheaper than some big name Tech place.


If you do decide to make your own, get a kit that has the crimper with it. I've seen these at Best Buy for around $40 or so I think. It comes with enough stuff to make a few half dozen cables. Usually the crimper alone will cost you $40~$50 so the kit is a good deal. Also, there's a good article here on how to make crossover cables and how to tell the difference visually.
