Is PhoneNet better straight, or crossover.

Recommended Posts

I’ve heard both are ok, but wondering if anyone knows advantages of one over the other...

While checking my bag of cables, I found both, and it made me wonder..

Even though I don't know much about PhoneNet, I have to agree with @LaPorta, because logically, why would PhoneNet have been designed to be compatible with ordinary telephone wiring, yet require a special kind of crossover cable in order to work?


I'd suppose it could've been intentionally designed to use either, maybe with a preference for crossover to ensure optimal throughput, with a fallback mode to ensure maximum compatibility with standard phone wiring, but I'm only speculating here.
