Creating a Crossover Cable

A crossover cable is a special cable we use when we needs to connect two computers together directly. But the thing is when creating the crossover cable you have to create it properly. As of the name suggests we have to cross some cables when clipping the network cable.

The following image will show how to do the cross.

If you have additional time you can visit the following site which is a good site explaining different color code standards.

If you already have an existing network cable and if you would like to make it a crossover cable, the following site will be useful since there you can change the wires (by changing the color drop down controls) as it is clipped in one end and can find out the way the other end needs to be clipped.
