these days some switches can detect the cross over cable

i.e. on those switches
PC <> switch will work with cross over cable

Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) and Data Communications Equipment (DCE) cross their transmits and receives on pins 1, 2, 3, and 6.

In order for two devices to communicate, Transmit goes to Receive, and vice versa.  If a DCE goes to DTE or vice versa, everything is fine.

If two like devices try it, they need the wire to physically cross the similar PIN out.

A lot of newer equipment can do it automatically - called Auto MDI/X or Autodetect.

A cross over cable has T568-A pinout (white green on ping 1) on one end, and T568-B pinout (white orange on pin 1) on the other.

Hope this helps.

Like these experts say, to home use, today you almost dont need to distinguish the cross over or straight cable, but in one common case : pc <> pc

as already stated most are smart now so shouldn't be a problem.

but general rule of thumb.
Like devices = Cross over,
Different = Straight through
