Question about Siemens SpeedStream Modem (4100) (SS4100)
Is there a difference in the patch cables which come with the subject equipment ?? If I use the Speedstream cable to connect the computer to the router and the Linksys cable to connect the modem to the router, I was unable to connect the the internet from the computer ( all lights said everything was OK ). For the heck of it, I used the Speedstream cable to connect the modem and router, and the Linksys cable to connect the computer and router, and everything then worked OK. I know they're both patch cables ( not crossover ), so what's the difference ??
There are several types of patch cables, but basically there are 2 general types: one for servers (they keep the websites) and for computers.
the servers need to communicate with each other in order to be in sync. so some cables are switched in one end.
The computers just want to receive and send data; it does not care about sync.
