Did you know? Connecting two computers together using a crossover cable is the fastest and safest method of transfering your files and data from one computer to another via cable. Data transfer through a direct crossover cable connection between two computers cannot be intercepted like wireless signals can. If you have a lot of music, pictures or large files that you want to transfer to (or share with) another computer, then using a crossover cable is an excellent alternative to using floppy disks or cds.

Did you know? Using a crossover cable is the easiest and lowest cost method of home networking. Easily connect two computers together by means of a single crossover cable.
