    @swolebrothers pretty useful. I remember using one. Me and my sibling were playing games across one of these without the need of a switch in between, was pretty nice

    These cables usually are marked in a specific way, so you would know that it is a crossover cable tho. In our case it had a red shrink tube close to the connectors and crossover cable written on the insulation.

    @thebiochemic I still have a few laying around in a box somewhere.

    We just did little adhoc networks to move data or play vidja games with them.

    @mansur85 yes and I'm color blind as F. Making those connectors made me crazy. That's what happened

    Unless you're into sm, just go with b

    @myss I did! and the former cables that were wired in that plug board were also B.
    but now the elechicken installed new cables and wired all new sockets in A

    which I only realized when I had all done and wanted to verify the locations were labeled right

    @swolebrothers would only be a crossover of 1 2 with 3 6 i.e. the oranges and greens
    And I pressume we wanna use all pairs if we paid for them
