    If you are plugging in from a port on your switch to a port on another switch (not an uplink port), you need to use a cross.

    Just an FYI, we started buying some cheap TrendNet 8-port switches at work, and they'll use either...auto-senses the wiring standard used and adjusts. Not bad stuff for around $20.
