crossover cable
cat5j May-14-00 02:18 PM
i made a 100' crossover cable using the format in the directions. the configuration is 568A on one end and 568B at the other. when i tsted it with a continuity tester, one side read 1-2-3-4 and the other end read 1-3-2-4, indicating i was successful in my terminations. i sent this cable out to someone who said it wasn't working. i just want to make sure this configuration is for 2 pc's with NO hub. and what would be my next step with this? any info would help, thank you, jay

Jay, I would suggest looking at those instructions again, starting at http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/cable/cable5.htm. Pin 4 is not used. Also, a DC contiunuity check does not guarantee that a cable will function at 100 Mhz. The best way to test the cable, if you don't have a network cable tester, is to use it in a network and copy a bunch of files between two PCs. Larry
