Question about Computers & Internet
If you are asking about connecting two computers together with a hub or switch, plug them into the switch/hub with standard patch cables (cat 5e or cat 6).
If you are asking about connecting two computers together directly using a LAN cable, then you will need a "Crossover" cable (cat 5e) wired specially (oranges transposed at one end for the common -B pattern) for direct LAN connection.

Well if you are asking how it should be crimped, PC to PC regularly, if it is not a smart port LAN then you have to use a cross-over cat 5 cable. but it won't really matter if you have smart ports. for the PC to switch connection, same principle applies, but if they have smart ports, that the type of LAN cables should not matter.
Hope this helps.
