when will i use a straight through connections? is it computer to switch\hub?
how about the cross over? roll over? what are their purpose?
 Answer by Joseph Golan posted 30 Aug 2005
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.
