|newbie at this!What patch cables go where?ie:from dsl modem to router,from router to computer?crossover or straight?|
Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 09 Apr 2003
From DSL modem to router: usually crossover
From router/Switch to computer: always straight
Some (should I say most these days?) routers/switches have a little button that lets you simply switch between cross-over/straight. It's usually somewhere around the port labeled as "Uplink"
So, research on that little button, and maybe you can get away with all straight cords.
