Anyone have success in Gigabit transfers with Crossover Cable?
Dec 12, 2012

I am tapped out.  I have a bunch of Win7 PCs, and I would really like to transfer data using a crossover cable (instead of my wireless network) at gigabit/sec transfer speeds without using a switch.  Lots of frustration here.  I did discover that normal crossover cables are different than Gigabit-level crossover cables -- and I have had no luck with either store-bought crossover cables or my own-made cables.  Windows still calls my crossover connection an "unidentified network".  Can anyone assist?

Have any of you had success with crossover cables for data transfer between 2 PCs?  Was it Gigabit speed or 100Mbit speed?
