real techs always have a crossover cable handy :)

Yes. You could probably do it with a regular cable.  Most newer switches are 
smart enough to go either way.

Subject: [windows2000] A networking question


Hello list,

I have a network jack in my wall that goes to a 16 port switch.  I'd
like to hook up a little 5 port switch that I have, but it doesn't have
an uplink port.  True a false?  I can use a crossover cable and just
plug it into one of the ports, and that will be as good as having an
uplink port.

I'd just go try it and see, but a) I'm still at work, and b) I own zero
crossover cables.

Thanks,

Ray at work
