I am repairing a CAT5e cable. It is Type B:
(White-Orange, Orange, White-Green, Blue, White-Blue, Green White-Brown, Brown).
Should I make the other end a Type B as well, or should I wire it as Type A:
(White-Green, Green, White-Orange, Blue, White-Blue, Orange, White-Brown, Brown).
It will be used almost exclusively for a computer, but I considered wiring the other side Type A to make it a crossover cable. My question though is, would it take away from the capable speed of the cable to wire it to make it a crossover cable? Another question, is there any real need for a crossover cable anymore?
Thanks in advance.
