switch to switch = crossover

switch to router = straight through

router to router = crossover

host to switch = crossover

Note that with modern switches that support auto-mdx you can actually connect 2 switches together with a straight thru and the switches will auto adjust.

I saw that earlier and thought you would notice at some point. I suppose it was some copy-paste daemon!
