 Wireing for CAT 5 when networking 2 systems
Hi, I am networking 2 systems at home and learning quite a bit but one thing is puzzling me.
I was told by diff people that some wires need to be crossed in order for this to work but no one can tell me which ones.
Do you know
There are 8 wires 12345678
Which order do they go? One person told me to wire like this:
12345678 21645378 PLEASE HELP
Thank You!
