Whats the difference between 568A and 568B.

Is this the same cable but the colours have to be reversed?

Thanks for the help

3. For a straight through cable, wire both ends identical.
4. For a crossover cable, wire one end 568A and the other end 568B.

You can buy such leads for similar or very little more than it will cost you to make one up.

I bought a 10m Linkys ADSL lead for £7.59 from a local computer trade and retail outlet, but I have since seen them even cheaper.

Try click here or Maplin.
