You know what that means...
ALL THE PR()N U WAWNT!!11!1
Anyway, a crossover cable is just a normal CAT-5 (aka ethernet) cable, but rewired. It lets you transfer things without a hub/switch/router. Sorry to everyone else if I'm wrong about that.

|it also doubles as a system link cable|
a system link cable IS a crossover cable
I'm sure wolf202 knows that. I'm just clarifying for those that don't know.

|the best thing about a crossover (crosswire) cable is that it damn near eliminates the 'bottleneck' in the connection. With a crosswire I have transfers from my pc to xbox that are around the 11,000kb/s range....through a hub or router that number usually is around 1000-3000kb/s. It's like the difference between drinking beers out of a bottle or through a beer bong......why fuck with bottles anyways?|
there's something wrong with your router, man. my router is 5 years old and i get xfers in the 8mb/s to 12mb/s range.
If you have a good router/switch, there's no significant difference between using a direct, crossover connection and going through a router/switch.

|Is there a good FTP program that would work through the router? I've heard that FlashFXP doesn't work through routers which is why I never tried it.|
works just fine for me.
