1) Connect 2 computers directly.
2) Connect a router's LAN port to a switch/hub's normal port. (normally used for expanding network)
3) Connect 2 switches/hubs by using normal port in both switches/hubs.

Ok, i think what you mean is this.  Crossover cable is for connecting 2 computers together without the need for a router.  also called pc-to-pc.  Straight cables need the use of a router or hub to connect 2 computers together.  Hope this helps, if not let me know more info.

Connect two RJ45 cables. Should I use an inline coupler, or crossed line coupler


Hello, If you are using the coupler to just extend the cable(like from a switch/home router to a computer), I would recommend the inline coupler. If you are using it to connect two computers, then use the crossed. This is assuming you are using two straight-through (patch) cables, or to x-over cables, which can be checked by taking both ends of the cable with the clips facing away from you, and seeing if the wires follow the same pattern. If they do not, the it is a x-over cable (unlikely if you just got the cables from the store). If you have one of each, then do the exact opposite. In the situation that its connecting a switch/home router to a computer, then its not as important due to the fact that most switches and home routers have a feature called auto-sense, where if the type is connected, they can simply auto-correct it, but pcs do not have this feature, so if you are connecting two of them directly together, then you must have the right coupler for the cables you are using (along with the right manual configurations on each computer, which is something that I can help you with if need be).If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, or simply reply.

How to solve the lan problem


With only Cat 5 UTP cable segments, the maximum length for any cable segment is 100 meters, make sure that you don't exceed this. Also crossover cables are for switch to switch connections. You must use a straight thru cable from PC to switch port

No dial tone


What?
Swap with a known working jack.
Ring out the cable to verify it has continuity end to end and straight through. A cross over cable ain't going to work for telephone.

Switch to Switch Connection


This is a very specific problem that requires a site visit to solve, there are many factors that can effect the transmission of data over a run of that length. There are many solutions to this problem, they range from rerouting the cable run to avoid sources of interference to selecting another medium such as WLAN or IrLAN. The specific implementation of the solution must be custom tailored to the situation, sometimes the solution requires equipment that is readily available on a store shevle and sometimes the solution must be engineered to accommodate the needs.

I would recommend looking at the cable route to see if it runs past any major interference makers (copiers/large office machines, industrial equipment, power equipment). Then look at the possibility of an intermediate repeater/router (protected location and availability of power outlets). Another possibility is a wireless technology, the specific technology depends on many factors. If you need high speeds or large data transfer, perhaps an Ir (Infra-red) link or WiMAX (802.16) would be best. If general purpose network connectivity is needed, then a standard 802.11 a/g WLAN will suffice. I recommend that you contact a local networking firm for a detailed consultation. Another resource that might be a better fit for most small budgets will be to contact the local college/university that has a well defined IT program to solicit members of the Alumni in a networking degree field.

Hello koolboyvipin, you and your friend can connect your computers together using CAT 5 cable in cross-over mode[pin1A to pin3B, pin2A to pin6B, pin3A to pin1B, pin6A to pin2B].
To connect more computers, you need a hub, but I prefer a switch because switches are more intelligent in data receiving/transferring. But your CAT5 connection between your computers and the hub/switch must be straight cables[pin1A to pin1B, pin2A to pin2B etc.]
I believe this would satisfy your problem.
For further enquiries, kindly post your requests to our forum.

Best regards,
Tony

Against my better judgement, because crimping doesn't work half the time, here's the color code.

A 4-pair Cat-5e or 6 cable has BLUE, ORANGE, GREEN, and BROWN pairs. The ones with the most white are called Tip. In a 568B wiring scheme, they go 54361278.

or, like this

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

wo ow wg bw wb gw wbr brw


Data is actually carried on pins 1 2 3 and 6.

If you wire the other end of the cable the same way as above, it's called a straight through cable.

If you reverse the orange and green pairs, it's a crossover cable. This is also the pattern for 568A

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
wg gw wo bw wb ow wbr brw

Getting the wires to untwist and behave is half the fun, that's why we use special plugs when we absolutely have to crimp. Otherwise, we use a jack and patch cord.

Help in connecting two computer together for multy gaming


If you are using a network cable to connect two computers without a hub, then the cable has to be a CROSS OVER cable. You can't use a standard network cable.
If you connect more then two computers to make a network of computers then you must use a hub and standard network cables.
