There are various types of crossover cables depending on the network you are looking to use it on. Some of these are listed on this page:
I strongly suggest that users that do not have access to test equipment to purchase their patch cords and crossover cords premade to avoid this such pitfall. The cost for a cord is minimal compared to the time spent trying to locate what is wrong.
