    The only difference is that pins 1&3 and 2&6 are reversed. Crossover cables are used to connect two devices together directly (computer, switch, router).

    They are basic Cat 5 or Cat 6 cable

    crossover connects 2 computers, directly , no need for hub

    most hubs/switches, auto sense if your using a crossover, and put it right for you

    google crossover pinouts for moe info
