how to make a cross cable to connect from a switch to switch
 Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 28 Feb 2005
Dear Punit,

Most switches these days do not require any special cable. They can either simply autosense the presence of a straight-through or a cross-over cable or give you ability to push a button that converts your straight cable into a cross over one (and vise versa). However, if your switches do not let you do that, use this page to make your own (or to buy a factory-made one for that matter):
