    how to make an ethernet crossover

    For ethernet/10BaseT:

    On one end you use 1,2,3, and 6. (colors don't matter if you aren't trying to be perfect or follow wiring standards)

    On the other end, use 3 and 6 in the first and second position, so that you have 3,6,1,2 in place of 1,2,3,6.

    For a T1 it's 1,2,4, and 5 with 4,5,1, and 2 on the other end.

    you really should look at a search engine/old threads before posting a new thread.
