- APPLEJACKLv 51 decade agoFavourite answer
ethernet patch cable is the cable you use from pc to modem,the crossover cable is from computer to computer

The only difference is that pins 1&3 and 2&6 are reversed. Crossover cables are used to connect two devices together directly (computer, switch, router).

crossover connects 2 computers, directly , no need for hub
most hubs/switches, auto sense if your using a crossover, and put it right for you
google crossover pinouts for moe info
