Compare the ends of the cables to http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/net2pc/hardware.htm and http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/cable/cable6.htm. Check the LEDs on the network adapters. If the ends (plugs) arenít correct and/or you don't have a solid Link LED, take that cable back to the swearing tech and have him prove that it works on his network by copying some files with it connecting two of his PCs. If he can't do that, he shouldn't be selling network cables. Larry
