Greetings:

 I was told at the last minute to show up at a worksite with two crossover cables.
 I won't be reimbursed if I purchase them, and I'd rather fabricate my own.
 I don't have a cable tester - any ideas on how I can do a quick test
 to make sure the ones I made work?
 
 (I made them following diagrams from www.lanshack.com)

the best way to test it out would be to connect it to a couple computers and test network connection.

Do you have a voltmeter or ohm meter?  You may need to use a paper clip to reach the leads on the rj45.
