|The discussion was about wiring crossover vs straight and when to apply each. CurtR did an excellent job answering the question.|
You chime in saying "i believe Cross-Over
cabling will do the job more often" which brings my rebuttal to the contrary. I list my reasons.
You then isolate the discussion to just HOME use. OK so lets look at that
PC to PC = xover
PC to hub = patch
PC to switch = patch
PC to isp's internet modem = patch
That's 3 to 1 in favor of patch
Now lets throw in mdix
PC to PC = no mdix so still xover
PC to hub = no mdix so still patch
PC to switch with mdix = patch still works so why use a xover?
PC to modem = no mdix so still patch.
Still comes down to 3 to 1 in favor of patch.
Your arguement has no basis.
This is why I think this discussion is pointless. You don't have a valid point when you consider the original discussion or the scenerios I present.
We get folks here all the time that didn't do their homework and wonder why things don't work. Homework didn't end with school. Life and computing is school. That's how some folk learn the difference between xover and straight - the hard way.
PS. its not a waste of money on the 50'. The ends just have to be redone that's all.
