Answer by Joseph Golan posted 30 Aug 2005
|Dear ALBERT ,|
Primarily straight through cables are used for connection of a PC to a hub,
The purpose of crossover types of cables are for connecting a PC to PC for a peer to peer network or for connecting two hubs together that lack an "uplink" switch. An uplink switch is dedicated to a particular port on a hub to allow chaining of the hubs.
