So Chp 3 has a table that shows devices that use a crossover cable:
Transmit on 1,2 and receives on 3,6
Transmits on 3,6 and receives on 1,2
There is a "Do I Already Know This Question" that ask: "There are two devices, which require a straight-through cable?"
The answers are:
-pc and router
-router and hub
-and wireless access point
This question is confusing me because it seems to go against the table above. Plus, on my home network, I have straight-through cable for my dumb switch and AP and they work fine.
The only time I have used crossover cable is when I wanted to connect two pcs together via their nics.
