What is the color layout for a a cross over cable?
Std. or straight-through Ethernet cable, by 568b specs, is Or/Wh, Or, Gr/Wh, Bl, Bl/Wh, Gr, Br/Wh,Br. Both ends.
Crossover is standard on one end, but Gr/Wh, Gr, Or/Wh, Bl, Bl/Wh, Or, Br/Wh, Br. You are crossing your transmit pair with your receive pair. Some sources would have you cross the other two pairs, as well, but it's not necessary.
Or = Orange, Wh = White, Bl = Blue, Gr = Green, Br = Brown.
Match up the two ends of the cable. Look closely at the color coding of the pins at both RJ-45 connectors. If the same colors are used in the same pin positions then the cable is a straight-through cable. If they are reversed at both ends then it is a cross-over cable. Sometimes the cable will be marked that way on the outside covering of the cable. Look for the words "cross-over cable".
You can use an ohmmeter to test the continuity of all wires. Alternately, you can put it in place of a known working cross-over cable and see if the network connection still functions. Remember that many modern network devices detect whether the cable is straight or cross-over, so perhaps you don't even need a cross-over.
In general, no, you would not use a cross-over cable to connect a hub/switch/router to a PC. This is because the device itself has cross-over circuitry built into it, and if you used a cross-over cable you would be reversing that process. The net effect is that the transmit signal would connect to another transmit signal, when it should be connected to a receive signal.
What is the type of network called that connects two computers directly together using a cross-over network cable?
There are several types of cross-over cables. The basic idea is to connect two devices that are alike - for example, connection a router to another router. both of these devices use the same wires in a cable (ex. a CAT6 cable) to send and receive data. so, in order for them to communicate you have to cross the wires so that the send wire on one side goes to the receive pin on the…
I had to create patch cables in my Infotech class and had to memorize at least straight cables. starting from pin 1 (left to right) Straight-Through: White-Green, Green, White-Orange, Blue, White-Blue, Orange, White-Brown, Brown White-Green is pin 1 and Brown is pin 8 Cross-Over Cable: White-Orange, Orange, White-Green, Blue, White-Blue, Green, White-Brown, Brown
A cross-over cable is used to connect two computers together without the use of a connecting device, such as a switch or hub. When daisy-chaining hubs and switches, some older equipment has a special port called the up-link port. This port requires the use of a cross-over cable to add hubs to hubs, etc.
Most switches and routers these days allow for a standard straight through cable to connect each other. (So any CAT 5e or 6 cable you find at Best Buy will be fine) Older devices (Such as a Cisco 2900xl switch) require a cross over cable to connect like devices such as a switch to switch. These cables can also be found at Best Buy and will be clearly labeled "Cross Over". There are two different…
actually, we can connect two PCs using straight cable. you can use patch panel (which works as adapter for straight to cross-over cable) or you can use LAN card that supports auto MDIX technology (invented by Hewlett Packard). With auto MDIX any straight cable will work just like any cross-over. further information about auto MDIX: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auto-MDIX
A network technician has made a UTP cable that is terminated as T568A on one end and T568B on the opposite end. What type of cable has been constructed?
Technically: A straight-through cable is used when connecting a computer to an external device, such as a switch or router. A cross-over cable is used where you are connecting a device directly to another device. Such as a computer to a computer, a router to a router. Finally, one you didn't mention but I thought you should know about, is the Rollover cable. This is also known as a "Console" cable and is used to…
Cross over cables are used to connect devices in the same group. For Ex.. Routers,PC,Printer belongs to same group. To connect a Printer and PC, We use cross over cable. Straight through cables are used to connect devices in the different group. For Ex... Switches, Hub, Bridge are in same group. To connect a PC and a Switch, We use straigh through cable since PC and switch belongs to different group.
Rollover cable (also known as Cisco console cable) is a type of null-modem cable that is most commonly used to connect a computer terminal to a router's console port. This cable is typically flat (and has a light blue color) to help distinguish it from other types of network cabling. It gets the name rollover because the pinouts on one end are reversed from the other, as if the wire had been rolled over and…
How can you connect 2 computers using cross cable Do you need to install any software or setting up has o be done?
The Disadvantages to a twised pair cable (AKA A Cross Over Cable): * It will require direct p2p (peer to peer) connections , e.g. straight from one computer to another (Mostly Via Ethernet or Com) * It will be incompatiable if talking to more then 1 computer by going throught a switch or hub. Cross Over Cables should only be used when one computer needs to talk to another one right next to it, or…
