Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

In order to work properly, straight-through Ethernet cables must be terminated with the same pin configurations on either end. Two different wiring standards exist for wired Ethernet: T568A (A wiring) and T568B (B wiring). A and B wiring offer the same electrical properties and either standard can be used. StarTech.com uses the T568B wiring standard for all of the straight-through Ethernet cables.

Note: For more information about the differences between straight-through and crossover Ethernet cables, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/network_cables_straight_through_vs_crossover.

Patch cables can come in two different wiring applications: straight-through and crossover. The type of cable that is required depends on the application. Straight-through Ethernet cables are the most commonly used.

Cable type Typical application
Straight-through
  • Between a computer and a modem, router, or switch
  • CAT5/CAT6 peripheral extenders
  • Between other dissimilar networking equipment
Crossover
  • Between two computers
  • Between two similar networking devices

Crossover cables use two different wiring standards: one end uses the T568A wiring standard, and the other end uses the T568B wiring standard. To determine if you have a straight-through or crossover cable, compare the Ethernet cables to see if the colors are wired in the same order on each end. For more information on Ethernet wiring standards, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/network_cables_a_vs_b_pinout.

Many modern network devices support Auto MDI-X, which automatically negotiates which wiring standard is required. For example, a computer with Auto MDI-X can use either a straight-through or crossover cable for any application.

Stranded Ethernet cables are flexible and are often used as patch cables, short cables that are ideal for connecting a computer to a wall outlet or to a router.  Solid Ethernet cables are rigid but have better signal strength.  These cables are ideal for use behind walls and in longer cable runs.
