Cabling

Hi All,

please tell me what type of cable is exactly required for connecting a Router's Ethernet port to a Switch's Ethernet port.....

I found on some discussions and forums on other sites that Cross Over cable is required....BUT

I am using a 2621 Router with a D-Link switch and I am connecting it with a Straight-through cable and it is working fine....

this straight cable can also connect a PC to Switch...

please guide.

Thanks in advance
