Turning a crossover cable into a straight through cable

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by Larry Roberts, Feb 14, 2005.

  1. I have a 100ft crossover cable that I want to tun into a
    straight through cable. Could I just buy another 3ft crossover cable,
    and a connection adaptor to hook them together to turn it into a
    straight through? I once did this using a 50ft straight through cable,
    and a 3ft crossover cable to turn it into a crossover.

    It should work. Though with such long cabling, and the extra junctioning
    in between, there's no guarantee about signal integrity.

    100 feet is well within spec.

    You could always cut the cable and crimp a new connector on the end?

    (although you'd need tools to do this!)

  8. Yeah, but I don't have those tools, and I'm not sure how to do
    it. The last time I called around town at the local PC shops, and
    asked how much they'd charge to do it for me, they quoted me the
    minimum rate (almost $30.00 an hour) to do it. I think the junction,
    and 3ft crossover extension will do fine.

    That might have been ok if they'd been honest and only charged you
    the (under) 3 minutes it would take somebody with the right tools
    to do the job. <g>

    I think the junction,
    So do I.
