I have one strage question,
I have one question that confuses me and not sure how to answer it
The question is:
Discuss why it is important to cross the pins in the cable. Include the functions of the pins and what problem you are trying to solve.
My answer would be:
With a crossover cable, the wires connected to Pins 1-2 on one end are "crossed over" and connected to Pins 3-6 on the far end and other way around.
Most electrical noise from the cable can be eliminated by puting twisted pairs in cables
and Cross-talk (signals leaking between wires in a cable) is also minimized.
But I am not sure is this the answer?
What do you think
