Crossover cable is used to connect two or more different devices like (computer and router) while creating network. As we learned what is networking in our previous networking tutorial. We came to know that there are different types of network. Each network used cat5, cat6 cables or any wireless router and wireless network card to connect each other. If we want to create any network using Ethernet cables what we have to do. It is so simple.
CREATING ETHERNET CABLE
T568A And T568B Color Codes
Two types of color codes T568A and T568B are used to create cross over cable and straight through cable. Now we will learn in detail about both.
TYPES OF ETHER NET CABLE DUE TO WORKING.
Straight Through Cable
Now we will learn about the use of straight through and cross over cable.
USE OF CROSSOVER CABLE In Local Area Network
If we want to connect two different devices like Network switch and computer etc.then we use cross over cable.
Creating CROSSOVER CABLE
As I said above that there are two coloring scheme of Ethernet cable T-568A and T-568B. Now if we want to create Cross Over Cable then we use one end of Ethernet cable as T568A and the other as T568B. shown as below.
How To Create Crossover Cable Video Tutorial
USE OF STRAIGHT THROUGH Ethernet CABLE
If we want to connect same devices (like two computer , two network switches or two routers) then we will use Straight through cable.
CREATING STRAIGHT THROUGH Ethernet CABLE
As I said above that there are two coloring scheme of Ethernet cable T-568A and T-568B. Now if we want to create Straight Through Cable then we use both end of Ethernet cable as T568A OR T568B shown as below
