Crossover cables are designed to connect two DCEs (data communication equipments like modems) or two DTEs(data terminal equipments like computers)
most routers nowadays have smart ports so you can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable to connect a computer. but if your router doesn't have smart ports, it's advisable to use straight-through cables

hope this'll help you

ciao!

I am trying to connect my belkin surf n300 to my existing network. I want to use it as an access point so i can plug my TV in via ethernet cable to the Lan port. However i am having problems setting it...


You will need a crossover cable to connect the two routers. They are different than standard LAN CAT cables and are available here:

When hooking up my Tenda W330R router to my Alvarion Breezeaccess broadband box, i lose connection occassionally.(says cable unplugged) should both cables be crossover or straight?


it does not matter if they are crossover or straight.... i think the problem is with cables...if the pin RJ45 are loose or of not good quality then these things happen i suggest you to replace RJ45 pins from cable with new ones with good quality. hope that helps!

How do I connect to laptop when using a sierra Wireless Key?


On your laptop, enable "Windows Internet Connection Sharing", and run a "crossover" (not "straight-through") Ethernet cable from your network-port to the WAN port on the router.

Then, your laptop becomes an "Internet gateway" for the router.

No ethernet connection on my computer thats hooked up directly to the 2wire router. how do i acquire ethernet connection?


My guess is that the 2wire router has a DTE plug and a DCE plug. The DTE plug is meant to plug in to your DSL modem, while the other plugs are meant to plug into computers.
If you move the plug, it might work, assuming you have an upstream and downstream connection on the router.
Failing that:
Make sure the cable is an ethernet cable and not a phone cable,
Make sure the wires are run straight through. If it is a crossover cable, it might be meant to connect a DTE to a DTE without a hub, and it won't connect a computer to a router port.
Try a different cable.
Try a different computer (borrow one, etc.)

I cannot connext my xbox360. internet light is not on on roiuter but i have an internet connection, how do i fix


The internet light indicates that a connection is made from the Internet port on the router to a device. This device should be a DSL modem or Cable modem.
The connections you plug the wires in a twisted pair Ethernet network into come in two flavors, DTE and DCE. There are 8 wires and two are used for transmission, two for reception with 4 unused.
The physical connections are the same on either end, so this is confusing. There are two types of cables, a "straight through cable" which can be used to connect DCE to DTE (a DTE is a computer or X-Box or something that is the end of the line, while a DCE is a Commuications device, like a hub. A modem or hub or cable adapter is a DCE. You plug your computer (DTE) into a modem (DCE) with a straight through cable. To plug a hub to a hub, you need either a crossover cable or a "X" port on the hub.
While many new devices are auto-sensing, the WGR614 is not, and they caution you that you may need a crossover cable, and to check the manual for the modem or cable device.
A manual for your router can be found at http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/wgr614v6_ref_man_20Apr05.pdf but I don't know what kind of DSL modem or cable adapter or whatever you have so I can't guess further. I found the explanation for "why is my internet light off" with the suggestion that you might be plugging DCE to DCE.
If you want to make your own crossover, it is not hard if you have the clamp for the RG-58 8 position connector.
Pins 1 and 2 are TD + and minus, and 3 and 6 are RD plus and minus. For a crossover cable, you need to swap 1 with 3 and 2 with 6. See http://www.kryslix.com/nsfaq/Q.4.html

2wire Wireless router not working w/Comcast cable modem


Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at jneal2k9@hotmail.com

Connecting a hub


The RP114 has auto-MDI/MDI-X sensing ports which means you can use a crossover cable or a straight cable in any of the LAN ports and it will automatically make a connection to whatever device you are using, so no uplinking is necessary.
