I have 2 Cisco 891 routers that I am using over an extended ethernet connection.

I am planning on testing them in the office first but want to know if I can connect them directly via an ethernet cable.

Do I need a cross-over cable, a switch, or can I connect them directly from WAN to WAN via straight through?
